There is nothing quite like Super Bowl Sunday. Aside from the football, I love all the great food that goes along with watching the game, including wings, dips, meatballs, sliders, charcuterie boards, and so much more.
Anything that can feed a hungry crowd of cheering fans is perfect for game day, and I love to offer a variety Super Bowl appetizers to keep everyone’s energy up.
When planning a Super Bowl party, I like to start by choosing what appetizers I am going to serve. Some things I keep in mind when making my menu are:
Amount needed. How many guests are coming? Adults? Kids? I like to serve 1 appetizer per 3-4 people coming. So if there are 12 people coming I’ll typically make 4 Super Bowl appetizers (or better yet, have everyone bring something to share).
Variety. I love to offer a lot of options so everyone has something they love to eat. This means I choose different proteins, textures, spice levels, temperatures, and flavors.
Temperature. I try to balance the amount of hot dishes I have to cold dishes, just to give a bit more variety.
Serving location. This is an important question to consider. If I have a bigger party, I will typically set up a buffet-style serving table with maybe one dip on the coffee table in front of the TV. For smaller parties, I might simply put items in serving bowls and put all the Super Bowl appetizers on the coffee table.
Effort. I want to watch the game, too, so I like to choose things I can make ahead of time or won’t keep me running around too much during play time.
Tastes. I always try to consider what my guests can and like to eat when choosing an array of dishes. That way, I know there is at least one dish for everyone, if possible.
