3 Snack Ideas for Your Football Snack Helmet

Even though the football snack helmet only has three compartment trays, there are plenty of snack ideas you can do with those trays. And with each of the snack tray compartments microwavable, the possibilities are endless!

Here are 3 simple snack ideas for football snack helmet

Tortilla Chips, Salsa and Hot Cheese Dip

This is a great fast way to put out something awesome for your next football party. Take the tortilla chips and nuke them in the microwave for about 30 seconds. This will warm them up a bit which will bring out the flavor of the chips.  Then place them in the top container.

Next, grab your favorite salsa and place that in one of the face mask containers. Lately, I have been using a wicked hot salsa called Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper Salsa and it is awesome!  But be warned, it is spicy!

Lastly, grab your best cheese dip and warm it up in the microwave for the instructed time and bang! You’ve some hot cheese dip for your last container.

Swedish Meatballs, Lingonberry Sauce & IKEA Gravy

Every time I go to IKEA, I always visit their food area and eat some of their yummy Swedish meatballs with lingonberry sauce. Then I realized that they sell that stuff to go! So, here is how you can have an IKEA meal in your football snack helmet!

Now the only way to get IKEA meatball (called KÖTTBULLAR) is to order from their online store or go to an IKEA location. If those aren’t possible, then any meatball will do. Once you have prepared them, place a paper towel to line the bottom of the top snack compartment and place the meatballs in there. To make it easy for your guests to grab them, place a toothpick in each one.

For the Lingonberry Sauce, you can actually buy that stuff on Amazon! Other options instead of Lingonberry Sauce would be cranberry sauce. Take the sauce out of the jar and give it a good stir before placing it in the facemask container as this will chuff it up a bit and make it easier for dipping.

Lastly, prepare your IKEA gravy (available on Amazon) and place it in the other facemask container.

Veggies, Ranch & Hummus Dip

Now for those on a health kick or a forced healthy diet, here is a great snack.

Slice up a bunch of veggies such as carrots, celery and red pepper and place them in the top container. If you can get them to stand up within the container, bonus points for you as it will then fit more veggies.

Find your favorite low calorie ranch dip (this one seems to be the best on Amazon) and place it in the mask container.

Lastly, grab some Hummus dip and give it a good stir like you did for theLingonberry Sauce as this will make the dip easier to pick up with the veggies.

And there you have it!

These 3 simple snack ideas for your snack helmet can be prepared within minutes and are a little bit more fancy than a bunch of chips. So, next time you have friends over for the game – try making one of these quick snacks for your football snack helmet.

    Hi Jay,

    Loving the idea of Swedish meatballs! how many meatballs do the helmet contain and why do you need to put a paper towel down will the grease hurt the plastic?

    Also, whats the best way to clean my helmet as I haven’t used it yet and not sure if it comes with cleaning instructions or my old lady threw it away

    These are great snack ideas for football nights. I have a Ravens snack helmet and usually put cheese cubes in the top and two different kinds of spicy mustard in the bottom. For me, it is more about teasing my friends who are Steelers fans! We take turns watching the games at each others houses. Most of the fun is in teasing each other. When I show up with a Ravens snack helmet, I’m sure to get a reaction!

    How fun! These look like very tasty, crowd-pleasing snacks that are bound to be a big hit. I think my son and his buddies will love them at their next football get together. Thanks for the wonderfully unique ideas. Very creative mini-niche you have going here also! Would that I thought of it 🙂

    Great post, now I’m hungry haha

    You mentions some great snack ideas! The part that they are in the helmet is brilliant!
    I’m really interested in those swedish meatballs! Although the tortilla chips is probably the fastest to prepare…
    Looking forward to seeing another post about great snack ideas for the games!

    Cheers!

    P.S.
    Thanks for sharing where to get that gravy!

    Hi Jay,

    I am the big fan of salty snacks always to the game as they work great with a beer or cola. I am scared of trying Ghost Pepper salsa, is it really that hot?
    If you want to try something else (not specifically for the helmet), I recommend watching this beauty on the youtube: watch?v=ekqAiN8fQyA

    Enjoy the game and food!
