Hello there my friends! Looking for Easy Family Dinner Ideas? Are you getting excited for the big game? We love this time of year – even if our team isn’t in the playoffs. We love football & we celebrate it each weekend with a spread of appetizers. Homegating is our thing & coming up with tasty new snacks is part of the fun. We like to let the kids help come up with these new snack ideas, which usually means they are centered around their favorite foods. For instance, this Peperoncini & Salami Appetizer is on top of their must make list.
You see – my son REALLY loves peperoncinis. When he was about a year old he would grab them out of the salad bowl when we would dine out & just munch on them whole. We would always wait for the heat to get to him & expected him to cry. But he never did – he just wanted more. Needless to say – all these years later & they are still a favorite snack of his. He will add them to just about anything – which is why he loves this appetizer so much.
Now my younger daughter – she loves salami. She loves it so much that she asked for her very own that she didn’t have to share. Yep – right on her Christmas list – a salami. I know- I thought it was strange too. She just had to write it on the grocery list. But she wanted her own. So when it comes to this snack – it’s hard to make enough for everyone. The kids just can’t get enough.
- Butter Crackers
- Goat Cheese (about 8 ounces)
- 1 tbsp chives
- Summer Sausage/ Salami - cut into chunks
- peperoncini slices
- Lay out your crackers on serving tray
- In a small bowl combine goat cheese & chives & fold together with a fork until chives are mixed throughout
- Spread a little of your goat cheese mixture on each cracker
- Top with a piece of salami
- Then top with a slice of peperoncini
