We’re very excited that the Kansas City Chief’s will be returning to the Super Bowl this year. But even if they are not the team you are rooting for, I hope you’ll enjoy trying some of these recipe ideas for the big day!
Super Bowl Party Ideas – Starters or Finger Foods
Need some finger food ideas for the big game? Here are a few of my favorite recipes to get your started. Be sure to have these out on a platter for the pre-game show or for when people start to arrive.
WARM. SOFT. CHEWY. SALTY. You’ll want to serve Sourdough Pretzels with Mustard Dip soon after coming out of the oven. If you can wait that long. But let them cool down a little or you’ll burn your mouth.
Here is a yummy Guacamole Dip perfect for outdoor barbecues or the next time you make Mexican food.
We love egg rolls at our house and these Baked Mexican Egg Rolls are wonderful appetizers to serve at your next family gathering! Tender chunks of chicken, black beans, corn, black olives, all wrapped up in a crunchy egg roll wrapper. Plus, baked is healthier than fried, right? So there you go. Even better!
As you may know already, I enjoy making Italian food. Homemade Toasted Ravioli is a new recipe I made after tasting my first in St. Louis, Missouri at Anthoninos Taverna. Tender pasta wrapped around a filling of beef, pork, herbs, and cheese, then fried to a crispy crumb. So good!
Beer-Battered Onion Rings are so delicious and surprisingly simple to make. The Dipping Sauce is quite tasty, too. Mayo, Ketchup, Horseradish and a mix of seasonings. Yummy.
The next time you’re hit with a craving for a jalapeno popper, try this baked version. It’s much easier than those that are deep fried. And my Baked Jalapeno Poppers with Bacon gets rave reviews any time I make them.
Game Day Soups
Soups are a great idea for a Super Bowl party. You can make it in the morning or afternoon and then put it in the slow cooker to finish or keep warm while you enjoy the game.
I love Game Day Chili with Beer that simmers long and slow on the stove. Seasoned with ground beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and green chiles.
Here’s a yummy soup recipe when you’d like something with an Italian flare. As some folks say, this Classic Minestrone Soup has everything in it except for the kitchen sink!
Slow-Cooked Tortilla Chicken Soup is perfect for a large gathering or church potluck. Packed with flavor from chicken, onion, bell peppers, pinto and black beans, creamed corn, tomatoes, green chilis, and seasonings, this soup leaves you satisfied.
Our family practically lived on venison meat for the first 15 years of our marriage. During that time, I learned how to best prepare the burger, steaks, and roasts. Some of the recipes were okay. Some were amazing. This Chunky Venison Stew falls in the latter category.
Foods to Sink Your Teeth Into
Be sure to pick one of these hand-held recipes to go with your soup. From Spicy Mexican to Italian to Barbecue, there is sure to be something that sparks your interest!
Our family enjoys these Black Bean Beef Flautas that are baked in the oven, not fried. Spicy hamburger and black beans rolled up in a crunchy flour tortilla. So yummy!
Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are filled with beef, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms, all mixed together with gooey mozzarella and provolone cheese and placed on a toasted hoagie roll. So yummy! Perfect for a night of football. Or for a Super Bowl Party!
I worked long and hard on this Classic Italian Stromboli to get it “just” right. I’m happy to report that this one pleased our family perfectly. It’s so delicious! Tender, sweet crust. Creamy herb and garlic sauce. Cheese. Pepperoni. Canadian Bacon. More Cheese. So Yummy!
Try these Slow-Cooked Barbecued Pork Sandwiches when you’re going to be away from your kitchen but want something delicious to serve to your family for supper.
We once ate Indian Tacos with Fry Bread in Northeast Oklahoma at the Woolaroc Museum. They were delicious. So, of course, I had to try making my own. This is a perfect idea for the Big Game!
Game Day Cravings – Something Sweet
No matter if you are watching the game with one or a room full of friends or family, you’ll want to provide something sweet to enjoy after the main fixings. These bar cookies are easy to make and will feed more than a dozen people. And all of them have a little or a lot of chocolate, depending on your crowd.
This recipe for Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies is one we make just about every month at our house. Decadent, chewy, fudgy brownies that are easy to make and oh so good! It’s an easy throw-together brownie recipe to use when you’re craving chocolate or just need a last minute dessert to share with family or friends.
This recipe for Chocolate Caramel Nut Bars is one we make every year during the holidays–but you can make them any time! With only six ingredients, they are easy to make. Caramel candies, evaporated milk, butter, pecans, chocolate chips, and a German Chocolate Cake Mix. So delicious!
I’ve been making this recipe for Blonde Brownies for years. It is one of my husband’s favorites. These bar cookies have the perfect combinations. Sweet and Salty. Chewy Center and Crunchy Edges. Buttery. Chocolaty. With hints of Butterscotch. Delicious.
