Is football big in your family? When I was little it sure was. My grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins would have a weekly football pool. Everyone had their favorite team and would watch the game with baited breath. There would be yells of joy when someone’s team was winning and cries of agony when their team was losing. It is what we did on a Sunday afternoon or Monday night. Of course, game day meant game day food, chips and dips, little appetizer bites and if I was really lucky pizza. Pizza was always my favorite, New Jersey pizza that is. There was a family that made pizza out of their basement, and it was the best pizza I have ever had. Sadly I haven’t had it in over 30 years.
So when Silk wanted some meatless game day recipes, I immediately thought of pizza and reminisced about those fun family times. We don’t actually watch football much anymore, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love game day food. So I decided to make a remix of my favorite pizza into Spinach Artichoke Appetizer Pizza Puffs. In addition I took these Spinach Artichoke Appetizer Pizza Puffs to Ladies Night. They are so simple to make and can actually be made a couple of hours ahead of time. I kept them in the refrigerator and warmed them up just before serving. It was an easy appetizer that I could feel good about serving my guests. The next day my daughter happily ate some for an after school snack. Shocking! They have spinach in them, and she still enjoyed them.
I’ve used soy and coconut milk before, but not cashew milk. So I decided to give it a try in this recipe. I really enjoyed the flavor and used it in a potato carrot soup a few days later. My family had no idea I had not used cow’s milk. Given that Silk Cashew Milk is 25 calories per cup, I am going to use it a lot more. I plan on making a breakfast casserole with it tonight. Yes, it is breakfast for dinner tonight in the Food Done Light house. You can use it as a replacement in any recipe that calls for milk. Be sure to visit Silk SideLine Meat for more recipes. They have a sideline meat challenge, too.
