Whether you’re into the sport or just there for the food and the halftime show (me), I’ve got the roundup of Perfect Game Day Recipes to enjoy! From Pretzel Bites with Beer Cheese to the BEST Brownies, we have your Super Bowl spread covered this year. Just sit back and enjoy the hat tricks and home runs;)
Fun fact. I almost got beat up at a hockey game once. I went on a date YEARS ago to a Canucks game, and thinking I was all cute and stuff, I thought I would impress him and join in the chanting and started yelling ‘boooo’ along with everyone else. Or at least that’s what I thought they were yelling. Nope. They were yelling ‘LUO’… like as in Luongo… the goalie. Right, right. I can’t remember if there was a second date. This coming from a gal who only scored ONE point in high school basketball: on her own net. So yeah, I’m in it for the food.
What to Cook for the Super Bowl
Don’t know what to make on Super Bowl Sunday? Consider this your ultimate guide to crowd-pleasing recipes. With finger food and individual portions in mind, here are some touchdown recipes both savoury and sweet.
Is it even Sunday if you aren’t enjoying at least one caesar?! A Caesar bar with lots of DIY garnishes like pepperoni, celery, pickles, olives etc. is a fun idea!
I feel like this needs no introduction. Guacamole is a game day icon. Serve it up with some tortilla chips and add a bowl of Pico De Gallo if you wish too. I mean, might as well make nachos while you’re at it?! Yum!
I would be remiss to forget these Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings for game day! This baked, vegan appetizer is seriously addicting, regardless of if you are plant-based or not, these are a fantastic appetizer.
Okay, this recipe was made for game day! These homemade Soft Pretzel Bites are both fun to make and eat. Serve them with a ooey gooey Beer Cheese Dip for the BEST addition to an appetizer spread. Warm out of the oven, these little bites are addicting…. you were warned.
These Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries are crunchy, healthy, addicting, and so easy to make. I paired mine with a marinara sauce, but anything goes here! A ranch dip or plain ol’ ketchup would be great here too.
I couldn’t write this roundup without including chili could I?! This Southwest Chili is perfect for feeding a crowd. Serve it will lots of fun toppings like cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, jalapeños and avocado.
Sliders are a great addition to a game day spread, especially if you want something more substantial. Using an easy to make whiskey BBQ sauce (whiskey is optional), these shredded chicken sliders come together in a pinch, and pack TONS of flavour. Pick up your favourite bakery-fresh buns, add a healthy portion of coleslaw and the rest is up to you! We topped ours with pickles because quite frankly, that’s a match made in flavour heaven.
An easy to grab sweet treat is needed on game-day, so my iconic classic brownies are perfect! Is there anything better than moist, fudgy, decadent, brownies fresh out of the oven?! The answer is a solid no.
These Air Fryer Onion Rings are crispy on the outside, sweet on the inside, and so much healthier than the deep-fried version. Serve as an appetizer with this Honey Chipotle Dipping Sauce!
