Sunday Funday Football Day! Are you watching the game? You know which one I’m talking about…yup, that one.
Juuuust joshing ye. I have to confess, I haven’t paid a lick of attention to football this year, and for a good reason: I’ve been binge-watching The League on Netflix. So brazen, so il-arious, Andre’s my favorite character, if you haven’t watched it yet, you must! It’s all the football you need and then some.
Case in point: I couldn’t tell you which team is doing how well, whose arms have new ink, and/or whose balls are deflated. Basically, I now know more about fantasy football than actual football.
…And when fantasizing about football and just thinking about carbs being burned, one must partake in the carbs, correct? Thank you for validating my thoughts.
Enter: Twice-Baked Potatoes.
The quintessential football food.
Major yum status, right?
The Caaaahb load. How can you not?
You know how twice-baked potatoes are typically filled with butter, sour cream, and/or half & half? Super delish, but also super fattening? I nixed the dairy, and I used Sabra’s Roasted Garlic Hummus as a super healthful replacement.
Not only does the hummus give that tang you love in a twice-baked potato, but it provides protein and fiber. Adding steamed broccoli and some extra roasted garlic to the filling yields even more flavor and health benefits. The roasted garlic hummus makes this recipe easy peasy. All you really need is a dash of salt, and you’re all set in the flavor realm.
Options for change-ups and such? We’ve got plenty. First and foremost, we can use any flavor of hummus our heart desires. We can also add more veggies, such as mushrooms, green onion, shredded carrot, etc. What about bacon and some cheddar? I don’t see why not!
Whether you’re making a side dish for any ol’ night, tailgating, and/or planning your holiday menu, these healthy twice-baked potatoes are your jam!
