Here is a round up of some of my favorite recipes perfect for a Super Bowl party! I’ve included appetizers, dips, main courses, snacks, beverages of course desserts.
The Super Bowl is a week away – are you ready? We are throwing our very first Super Bowl party this year for our family and I’m having a lot of fun plotting and planning. Now that the teams are chosen, I can tailor my color scheme and menu appropriately.
First we have to start with the table! This easy no sew football field table runner is cheap and easy to throw together.
If you make Mexican Corn Dip, you need to double or triple the recipe – trust me! Only use Hellman’s or Best Food mayonnaise and serve with any kind of tortilla chips. We look Scoops! type chips the best.
Bacon wrapped stuffed dates are super easy to throw together. You can cook these in the oven or on the grill depending on the rest of your menu. Put these together the day before for easy game day cooking.
Roasted Eggplant Dip is something a little different and is great served with pita chips.
Horseradish Cheese Dip is another great appetizer or dip to serve throughout the game.
A Super Bowl party is the perfect excuse to do a shrimp boil!
Make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches and just leave them on warm to serve!
Chili Verde is a nice change of pace to the typical beef and bean variety. This one is also made in the slow cooker for an easy game day meal.
Slow cooker barbecue meatballs can be eaten straight up or offer buns to make sandwiches.
A big batch of coney dogs are perfect for game day! Leave the coney meat in one slow cooker and the hot dogs in water in another slow cooker for a no fuss diner.
My kids are kind of fussy eaters so I’ll make sure to have some garlic bread pizza on hand just for them.
Make your own chicken wings with homemade buffalo sauce! You can fry or bake them.
Or you can change things up a bit and make honey sesame Chex mix in the slow cooker. I love this mix!
I’m planning to try making football shaped boiled pretzels for our crew. Pretzel bits would be fun, too!
Cinnamon sugar nuts are great to put on tables near the TV for people to munch on.
Homemade caramel corn can be made ahead of time and is another great snack for the kids.
Homemade monkey bread is another classic that would be fun at a Super Bowl party.
The guys will probably just want beer but a little Pineapple Sangria is great for the ladies.
A carafe of hot chocolate is great to ward off any chill – and for the kids!
Put out a little homemade Irish cream to add to the hot chocolate or coffee – adults only, of course – unless you make it alcohol-free.
Use frozen strawberries for a pitcher of strawberry limeade and get everyone dreaming of summer.
This would be a fun event to try your hand at making homemade soda, like homemade cream soda!
Make this peanut butter chocolate chip pie and you will be a hero!
Make a batch of whole wheat brownies and cut in to football shapes. Frosting is entirely optional!
Chocolate chip peanut butter cookie pie is easy and delicious!
Cheesecakes are popular around our house and Snickers Cheesecake is one of our favorites.
Cream puffs are another fun dessert that can be made ahead of time. You could top them with….
And finally, put the kids to work and make football shaped easy sugar cookies.
Phew! I hope you find some yummy food for you Super Bowl watching! What are you planning to do for the Super Bowl?
