Super Bowl Food Ideas

Here’s a quick overview of the different types of recipes you’ll find below:

  1. Super Bowl Dips
  2. Game Day Wing Recipes
  3. Best Meatball Appetizers
  4. Super Bowl Sliders and Sandwiches
  5. Bacon Appetizers for Game Day
  6. Best Super Bowl Snacks
  7. Healthier Super Bowl Snacks
  8. Super Bowl Finger Foods
  9. Easy Super Bowl Food Ideas

I am SO looking forward to all that food on game day! It helps to have a bit of a strategy when you go in. Start with some cheese and crackers, then veggies and dip (to get the healthy part out of the way). Then move on to all of the hot cheesy dips, and graze on some of the finger foods. Make sure you’ve got a cocktail in there somewhere to balance out the food. 

After a few hours, I like to go ahead and eat something a little more substantial, like a sandwich or tacos. This is a good time to grab a few wings too! And when you think you just can’t eat anymore, take a break and just grab a handful of chips or Chex Mix.

When the game is over and people start leaving, sneak in for a final round of your favorite Super Bowl appetizers for one last taste. The goal is to end the day feeling SUPER STUFFED. I always win at this challenge.

Easy Super Bowl Food Ideas

After all the snacks and apps, it’s nice to have a few heartier options to serve on game day. Let people graze on everything else as they please, but add in a few other foods that can act as more of a meal for those who are extra hungry. Tacos, nachos, burgers, and chicken tenders are always a great idea!

Nothing makes game day delicious more than 3 CHEESE BACON RANCH FRIES. This easy and fun appetizer takes crispy fries and tops them with ranch seasoning, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, and feta.

SHEET PAN CHICKEN QUESADILLAS are the easiest and best way to make delicious quesadillas for a crowd! These baked quesadillas can be made with any filling and toppings, and are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.

And now that you’ve got the Super Bowl food all covered, you might need a few drinks to go along with it! Browse through our cocktail recipes for some ideas. My number one choice for Super Bowl cocktails is this Pitcher Margarita Recipe!
