Is SUPER BOWL Sunday really two weekends away?! Where did the season go? I guess after the Packers lost in Lambeau (I’m from Wisconsin, represent!), I stopped paying attention to football er time. Anyway, Super Bowl Sunday is huge with our family and friends, a day to eat a bunch of snacks until you’re full, watch commercials, and throw back a few. Which is exactly the point of today’s article- the perfect Super Bowl appetizer. I should probably mention that this snack shouldn’t be limited to Super Bowl Sunday because it’s totally perfect for Christmas (hey it’s red and green), parties, and more!!

In fact, we actually made these for Christmas, which you may have noticed a teaser on Instagram, but we wanted to be sure they were gobbled up as soon as the tray hit the counter a hit before posting for all to replicate.

Last thing before we get into the recipe, I’m not normally a ‘food blogger’ but we love to spill the beans on a few of our favorites when we stumble across a great concoction. You see, we’re a ‘throw it together and see what happens’ kinda household. We experiment a lot. I’d say we’re about 90% successful since we tend to toss our favorite foods together and hope for the best. That or we’re cleaning out the cupboards, or we were really hungry. I’ll go with the latter. Rest assured, I tested these bad boys on very truthful family these Stuffed Cucumber Cups were gone so fast we barely had a chance to scoop a few into our own mouths.

Stuffed Cucumber Cups

Recipe Yield: about 44 cups 

4-5 long (medium) cucumbers 
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream 
*1 1/2- 2 Tablespoons Dill Weed 
*1 Tablespoon Onion Flakes 
*1 1/2 teaspoon Celery Salt 
3-5 strips Crumbled Bacon 
*Or to taste 

1. Prepare the dip mixture by combining Dill Weed, Onion Flakes, Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, and Celery Salt (add more or less to taste). Transfer to one gallon Ziploc bag. Let sit for an hour (or overnight for full flavor). 
2. Cook bacon and crumble, we use another Ziploc baggie and a large bowl to crush them at once. A rolling pin works as well. 
3. Stripe Cucumbers. Slice each long cucumber into about one-inch pieces. 
4. Scoop out the center and seeds using a spoon. Be sure to leave about an eighth to quarter inch of the center to form a ‘cup’ which properly holds the dip mixture.Optional: use the cucumber seeds: dice and add to the dip (waste not want not right?).
5. Cut the corner of the Ziploc and begin filling each cup until dip protrudes. 
6. Garnish with crumbled bacon.

In all these took less than an hour to create (minus refrigeration time). Since the cucumber bowls are made fresh, only make the dip ahead of time, leaving the cucumber bowls until the day of the event.

This recipe is versatile, feel free to stuff your cucumbers with interesting flavors. If you create a new variation, I’d love to see/hear all about your version below!!

They’re the perfect bite-full snack to feed your Super Bowl party. So what do you think, are you going to serve, or bring them as your dish at your Super Bowl party?



  1. Oh my goodness, these look delicious! Your photography is awesome and makes me want to reach through my screen and inhale one!

    1. Awe thanks girl, I actually used the manual settings on these this time ha! I promise you they are just as delicious as they appear!

  2. I'm still kinda bitter about that loss in Lambeau too! These look delish Trisha - I'll eat about anything with cream cheese or bacons in it.

    1. You're a Packer fan in MN?! Say what?! Is this an underground thing or are you one of those hard-core fans that displays it proudly and shows everyone the crazy eye if they think about giving you a hard time?!

      I could eat bacon and cream cheese alone, the cucumbers are there to make it seem healthier, ha!

  3. Nom nom nom nom ..... I don't care about football but I want to make these! ;)

    1. Ha! Now that my team is out I'm in it strictly for the commercials! If I had DVR I'd pause the game while I got get my snacks so I wouldn't miss one cutesy animal commercial!

  4. These sound delicious. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. :)

  5. Okay, so I think I'm headed to the store tonight...
    These look delicious Trisha!

  6. Where do I work in sour cream and cream cheese?

    1. Hi Chase, my apologies for omitting that information. The sour cream and cream cheese are mixed in with all the dry ingredients, in step 1.

      I've also made an update to the recipe above. Thanks for letting me know!

  7. Tried it with cream cheese, olives & bacon bits that I made! YUM!

    1. Oh wow, that sounds absolutely delicious!!
