I’m not much of a football fan (I can barely tell you who’s playing on Sunday). All I know is it’s not the Patriots, because everyone in Massachusetts has been in a funk for weeks. And the only football talk I have heard around here is questioning if Tom Brady is coming back. All this to say, my Super Bowl focus has never been the game or even the commercials. It’s the food! Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest eating day of the year after Thanksgiving and there’s a good reason for that. There are so many delicious foods that pair perfectly with the big game. Here is a selection of some of my recipes that would work perfectly (last minute!) for your Super Bowl party!
I like to make a few dips when I am entertaining. Lay out a bunch of different breads, chips, veggies, and anything else dippable you can think of on a table of some delicious dips.
Greek Dip– So much flavor, with a layer of smooth, savory hummus, a layer of cool, herby tzatziki, and toppings like feta cheese, chopped fresh cucumbers, sweet tomatoes, and briney capers and olives. A wonderful addition to any app table.
Spinach Artichoke Dip– Classic recipe bursting with flavor. Serve with chips or even vegetables if you are looking for a lower carb option.
Pepperoni Pizza Dip– Cheesy and gooey and hot from the oven. It has all the Italian flavor of pizza: from the cheese to the sauce to the toppings.
For the Buffalo Chicken Fans
One of the classic Super Bowl foods is buffalo chicken. I have you covered!
Buffalo Chicken Rolls– These are an all time favorite for me and many readers. Easy to make and serve, and they pack a lot of flavor.
A lighter version of typical buffalo chicken fingers. Baked instead of fried if you want to make them at home with easier clean up.
Healthier Baked Buffalo Chicken Nuggets– These are great for kids who like spicy food.
Other Awesome Apps
Lighter Chicken Nachos– My all time favorite app food is nachos, so this is probably what I will be eating. They’re piled high with tortilla chips, delicious (and easy!) slow cooker Mexican shredded chicken, seasoned black beans, melted cheddar cheese, and all the fixins.
Guacamole– A simple mix of avocado, lime, garlic, onion, tomato, and cilantro. Pure, fresh, and impossible to stop eating!
Petite Lasagnas– These are super cute and tasty. Easy to make in a muffin tin and bring to a party.
