Fakesgiving Watch Party

Since I’m not originally from Tulsa, I like to host holiday dinners with my friends before I travel to northwest Oklahoma to visit family. For the past 5-6 years, I’ve hosted various Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners/parties. Last year, I started something new – a Thanksgiving-themed football watch party. I took everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving dishes and attempted to transform them into “football” food. It was so much fun I decided to do a repeat this year.

Here is the menu with recipes (if available):

Fried Stuffing Balls with Cranberry Pesto (pg. 41)

green bean bundles (substitute green beans for asparagus)

spicy corn dip

turkey salad on croissants [recipe coming soon – UPDATE: here is the recipe]

brussel sprout “pops”

twice-baked mini potatoes

pumpkin cupcakes

Confession: Just as I was writing this blog post, it dawned on me that I forgot the cheese in the corn dip. Everyone seemed to love it so I guess it wasn’t too big of a mistake. I can only imagine how good it’d be WITH the cheese.

These cupcakes are my new favorite. They could not be more easy – 2 ingredients: spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I added store bought cream cheese frosting to make them more dessert-ish. And I bought this adorable football stand at Michael’s and I will definitely get my money’s worht next year during football season!

We all had a good time (despite the Sooner loss –  boo). Sorry to everyone not pictured, including myself!
