Superbowl is not the time to be fiddling around with elaborate appetizers or anything too time-consuming. Rather it is the perfect time to make Superbowl finger food and simple Superbowl party food. Chips, dips, pretzels and anything hearty is what Superbowl calls for. You might like to make a pot of chili, some mac and cheese, or a spicy beef stew.
Crockpot pulled pork or barbecue beef sandwiches are always popular or you might like to make easy ham or tuna sandwich melts or barbecue beans. Most people like to make one pot of something hot and savory, and then accompany that with slices of pizza, sandwiches, dips, spreads, chips, and nuts, so there is something for everyone.
Watching the Superbowl with a crowd of friends is much more fun than watching it alone, so you will want to plan your Superbowl food early and buy the ingredients you need. You will not want to be running back and forth to the kitchen once the Superbowl has begun, so make sure everything is ready to serve, bring everything out to the table, including drinks and napkins, and then you can settle down to enjoy the game.
Superbowl Finger Food
Finger food like chicken wings or chicken drumsticks make great Superbowl finger food, or you can make small sandwiches or individual pizzas. Simple finger food like potato chips, corn chips, pretzels, and toast points can be served with dips and spreads, so you can mix and match. You can make the dips yourself. What about making a hot spinach and cheese dip, as well as a few cold ones?
Quesadillas are easy to make and eat. Simply sandwich some cheese between a pair of flour tortillas, and then fry until the cheese melts. Cut the quesadilla into quarters or eighths and serve hot. You can add ham, bacon, tomatoes, onion, or anything else to the cheese filling.
Sliders are always popular too. Whole burgers might be too messy or too filling, but sliders give you the flavor and appeal of hamburgers without having to fill everyone up too much to enjoy the other Superbowl appetizers that are on offer.
More Superbowl Food Ideas
Potato skins are another popular Superbowl party food, and great fillings include cheese, chives, bacon, and ham. What about making some deviled eggs? Simply hard-boil some eggs, then slice them in half lengthwise and mash the yolks with mayonnaise and seasonings, and pipe or spoon them back into the whites. These are fine to eat with the fingers.
Making your own dips is easy and you can make guacamole or hummus very easily, and then serve them with sliced French bread or with toast points. Salsa is another nice idea and you can make really fresh-tasting homemade salsa. Homemade dips are much tastier than store-bought ones.
If you want to make some sweet Superbowl food, how about carrot cake or homemade cookies? You can serve some dried fruit or trail mix, or you might like to make your own cake or cookie recipe. Making a variety of snacks means something for everyone.
