Appetizers {Whole 30}

This past Sunday, I witnessed the most heartbreaking football game of all time. There was so much sadness in my heart.

The Packers *sob* aren’t going *sob* to the SUPERBOWL *sob wail.*

I’d like to say it was a good game, because for most the game, it was! But the it’s like, they didn’t keep their head in the game. And they had it stolen out from under them.

More sadness.

But on the UP side, we had a few friends over to watch, so I whipped up a few Whole 30 friendly appetizers I thought I would share with you today!

Obviously, you can never go wrong with a veggie tray and some guacamole, but I really just wanted to make a little something different for myself. The first is SO EASY. I mean, it’s so easy, in fact, you don’t even really need a recipe…

Bacon Wrapped Pineapple

I mean, how have I not done this before anyway? I baked these guys at 375 for around 20-30 minutes. Just totally depends on your oven. I served with BBQ sauce on the side if anyone wanted it. It’s basically a nod to the Hawaiian Pizza without all the other stuff. They were a hit, and vanished rather quickly…

My other appetizer, which may look a little odd because there are green, are

Avocado Deviled Eggs

The idea here is to replace mayo with avocado. You CAN make a paleo mayo, and use that, but frankly I really don’t eat mayo and to make a whole batch just for these seemed silly. Plus a little green for my Packers seemed appropriate.

Ingredients

8 eggs, hardboiled

1 ripe avocado

1 tablespoon mustard

salt & pepper

paprika for sprinkling

All you do is carefully slice your eggs in half, emptying the yolks into a bowl. Mash these yolks together with your avocado and mustard, adding salt and pepper to taste. I actually whipped out my immersion blender to make sure I got them as creamy as possible. No one wants lumps in their eggs!

Fill your egg whites back up, and you are set to go.
