There are two groups of people in this world– those who like football and those who don’t. I fall into the latter group having never really been a fan. Oh, sure, I have been known to cheer and wear a shirt bearing the logo of my “favorite” team, but, at the end of the day, I can honestly say that if football was banned from the earth I wouldn’t think twice about it.
Except, if football was banned from the earth I would definitely miss the food. The foods that I associate with football are some of my favorites. I will happily sit through an entire game if there is a spread of tasty snacks. If someone invites me to watch a game at their house the first question I ask is, “will there be food?” and the answer to that question rates heavily in my decision to attend. And, yes, I am that person who asks if there will be food.
So, while I might not take the game seriously, I do hold the food in high regard. I’ve hosted and attended many game day gatherings and, while I may not remember which team won or what the critical plays were, I always remember the food.
I think these pizza pockets are a great game day offering– they’re easy to make and even easier to serve. This recipe makes four hand pies, but you can easily double or triple the recipe.
