Game Day Snacks for the Win

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.

Thankfully, there are a lot of winning Super Bowl food ideas to choose from, such as the fan-favorite of baked chicken wings, the surprise play of white bean hummus, or the touchdown of meatball sliders. Go team!

Planning Super Bowl Party Foods

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 (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 it all 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.

Super Bowl Finger Foods

There is nothing better than an easy-to-eat appetizer while watching the big game. From sliders to potato skins, these are my favorite Super Bowl finger foods on game day.

Easy Super Bowl Dips

I love dips! They are easy Super Bowl appetizers to make and even better to eat. I love serving them with a variety of crackers or vegetables to let my guests choose their own bite.

Crockpot Appetizers for Super Bowl

My trusty crockpot has made many Super Bowl recipes, because cooking in it is super easy and it keeps dishes warm throughout the entire party. That is a big win in my play book.
