Paleo Football Food

Did I get you with the apple crisp? It’s just as delicious as it looks. Think it might be just the thing for Thanksgiving. And the next get together at the Quebs (my in-laws). The ultimate compliment (I think?) was Harris’s comment, “This isn’t paleo, is it?” Why, yes. Yes, it is! Too good to be true? Nope. Not at all.

But getting back to football. Most football (or movie watching) munchies are of the “no carb left behind” variety, and often do not make for a satisfying meal. An evening game cries out for supper snacking that satisfies. So here’s the line up:

Paleo Football Food

We have meat for sustenance, vegetables for color and contrast and Louisiana and Italy for inspiration! Some raw vegetables with a dip is about all the more you could ask for. Starting with Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus spears, I ramped up my version by adding crunch and flavor with pesto-style ingredients: pine nuts, basil and garlic.

Then I gave Scotch Eggs a run for the money by using South Louisiana favorites, andouille sausage and pickled quail eggs. The spice and vinegar in the eggs brighten the sausage, and the size is manageable. Most Scotch Eggs are as big as a cat’s head and covered with bread crumbs. But this is football food! We don’t need no stinkin’ bread crumbs!

Then we have the Pepperoni Pizza Bites gone paleo. No cheese need apply. None needed.

And finally dessert. If you don’t love this, invite me over and I’ll give your leftovers a good home.

So there you have it. But one more thing: all of these recipes can be prepared ahead and baked as needed. There’s only one oven temperature, so you don’t need to shuffle or calculate. You can serve one item at a time or a few of several. That way there’s not a lot of kitchen work during the show, and you can crank out fresh, hot goodies all night long. If the apple crisp is chilled before the final baking, it might require an extra few minutes to bake. You just have to taste and see if it’s done. Poor you!

I’ll spare you any football related music and go with a collection of eclectic tunes. Enjoy! And seriously. Let me know how you like the apple crisp.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Using 1/8 of the sausage, pat a flat circle in the palm of your hand, thin enough to enclose 1 egg. Pinch the edges to close and roll gently in your hands to make a ball. Continue with remaining sausage and eggs.
  2. Roast for 35 minutes if using qual eggs. Larger eggs will require additional time. Check every five minutes or so until larger meatballs are fully cooked.
Recipe Notes

The proportions for this recipe are based on using quail eggs. Hard-boiled chicken eggs can be substituted and depending on the size will require additional amounts of sausage. I found some fresh andouille sausage which is uncooked and can be removed from the casings. Smoked andouille sausage is pre-cooked and cannot be used in this preparation.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place tomato slices on paper towels to remove excess moisture. In a small skillet over medium heat, cook the mushrooms and onions about 5 minutes.
  2. On a baking sheet, place pepperoni slices. Top with a tomato slice, some mushrooms and green peppers, and sprinkle with oregano and crushed red pepper flakes. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Coin-sized pepperoni slices will not work well for this recipe, they're too small.
