Mini Spinach Cups #FootballPartyApps

We are quickly approaching every football fan’s favorite day, Super Bowl Sunday! While I do love my Philadelphia Eagles, I’m not a huge fan of sitting in front of the TV to watch a game. There had better be other things going on, like people to talk to, games to play, and of course food to eat! Everyone knows the best part of any football party is the food. It’s usually total non-health food: wings, burgers, pizza, beer, creamy dips, chips, etc… But it’s all so delicious you just can’t help yourself! Someone has to be the health nut and bring something on the lighter side. That is exactly what I’m here for.

I’ve got a cute and yummy little appetizer that you can bring to your next football party coming up, or save for the big game day next month. These Mini Spinach Cups are perfect little one-bite snacks that won’ make you feel weighed down and gross if you have more than one (which you know you will). You can also get two dishes out of it by baking the extra in a dish and serving it as spinach dip.
