Football Deviled Eggs and More Tailgate Favorites

For me, tailgate parties and deviled eggs go hand in hand. Here's my family recipe for deviled eggs. Caroline, my daughter came up with the idea to add rosemary and paprika to make them look like mini footballs. We also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise to make them healthier.

Mini-Football Deviled Eggs
6 hard-cooked eggs
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon vinegar
fresh rosemary

Halve hard-cooked eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Place yolks in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add yogurt, mustard, and vinegar. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Stuff egg white halves with yolk mixture. Sprinkle with paprika; garnish with rosemary

Another fun idea for a football party is "Football Field" Guacamole Dip. 

Guacamole Dip
2 medium very ripe avocados, seeded, peeled, and cut up
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
A dash of Texas Pete

In a bowl, combine avocados, lime juice, garlic, salt and Texas Pete. Mash with a fork until no longer lumpy.

Spread guacamole dip on a pan. Pour salsa on one side of the pan. Place shredded cheese or jar of cheese sauce on the other. Spoon plain greek yogurt in a ziploc and trim the corner of bag. Outline the field. Add tomatoes and black olives. Serve with Tortillas.

If you're not a fan of guacamole, this Pulled BBQ Chicken Nachos is a delicious alternative. Elizabeth, my other daughter, came up with this original recipe for a Superbowl Party.  Place chicken, skin side down, on a broiler pan. Broil about 20 min. Brush with margarine. Turn chicken and broil for 5 to 10 mins or until no longer pink. Remove from oven and allow chicken to cool. Remove skin. Brush with BBQ sauce and broil for another 5 min. Allow to cool again. Shred with fork (or clean little fingers). Spread over nachos with shredded cheddar cheese and lettuce.
