It’s that time of year again – the Super Bowl is just around the corner, and we’re all getting ready to host the ultimate game day party! To me, the best part of the Super Bowl is all the fun snacky foods I usually make to accompany it.
The commercials run a distant second. Any time finger food is involved, that trumps anything else for me.
Here are my Top 10 recipes fit for the Super Bowl. Not all of them fall under the finger food category, but I think they’d all make a perfect addition to any Super Bowl party.
Let’s dive into the playbook and explore these game-winning recipes!
1. East Meets West Burgers
I love the way these burgers are a perfect blend of flavors from different cooking styles. The juicy beef patty is seasoned with a blend of Asian spices and topped with a cabbage salad that adds a refreshing crunch.
I’ve made these burgers for many parties, and they’re always a winner. They’re incredibly easy to make, and the unique combination of flavors will excite your taste buds.
You can also customize the toppings to suit your guests’ tastes. Serve these delicious burgers with a side of crispy sweet potato fries for an unforgettable game-day feast.
2. Chicken Parmesan Tanglers
These Tanglers are a fun and tasty twist on a classic Italian dish.
Tender chicken strips are dipped in a Parmesan breadcrumb coating and fried until golden brown. Then they’re topped with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese.
The result is a finger-licking appetizer that’s perfect for sharing. They always go fast at my Super Bowl gatherings, so I always make extra.
To complete the experience, pair them with a simple green salad or some garlic bread.
3. Monterrey Chicken Quesadillas
Crispy tortillas are filled with juicy, seasoned chicken, melted cheese, and a sauteed onions and peppers blend. The secret to their success is the spicy Monterrey Jack cheese. It adds a kick of heat and a burst of flavor.
For an irresistible Super Bowl snack, serve these quesadillas with a side of homemade guacamole and salsa. You can also adjust the fillings to your liking.
This makes them a versatile and delicious option.
4. Appetizer Sampler Platter
An appetizer sampler platter is a perfect way to offer different flavors and textures to enjoy. I include a mix of hot and cold options, such as mini meatballs, stuffed mushrooms, deviled eggs, and bruschetta.
That way, there’s something for everyone, and it’s a great conversation starter. Add dipping sauces, like marinara or creamy ranch, to increase the flavors.
Get creative and swap your favorite appetizers to create the ultimate Super Bowl spread.
5. Captain Crunch Chicken
This playful dish is guaranteed to bring back memories of your childhood while satisfying your cravings as an adult. Tender chicken strips are coated in crushed Captain Crunch cereal and then fried until golden and crispy.
This creates a delicious combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy that’s irresistible. I serve them with honey mustard dipping sauce for an extra flavor kick.
This nostalgic treat will leave you, and your friends pleasantly surprised and impressed.
6. Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti
This recipe combines two game-day favorites – Buffalo wings and pasta – into one yummy dish. Tender shredded chicken is tossed with spaghetti and a creamy buffalo sauce, then topped with blue cheese crumbles and green onions.
It’s a satisfying and tasty meal that’s perfect for feeding a hungry crowd. Serve it with a side of garlic bread and a crisp green salad to round out the meal.
Everyone will come back for more.
7. Sausage & Cheese Pinwheels
A flavorful and satisfying appetizer that’s perfect for a Super Bowl get-together. Flaky puff pastry, then rolled and sliced into bite-sized pinwheels, is filled with a mixture of seasoned ground sausage and gooey cheese.
Baked to golden perfection, these pinwheels are a real game changer and can be made ahead to save time on the game day. Serve with a side of spicy mustard or marinara sauce for dipping.
For a more personalized flavor experience, play around with different types of sausage and cheese.
Stromboli is a delicious and satisfying Italian-American dish that is perfect for game day. Like a rolled pizza, Stromboli is made by spreading tomato sauce, cheese, and your choice of toppings on a rectangle of pizza dough, then rolling it up and baking it until golden and bubbly.
The result is a tasty and convenient meal that can be easily sliced and shared with family and friends. Some of my favorite stuffing combinations are pepperoni and mozzarella, sausage and peppers, and spinach and ricotta.
Serve your stromboli with a side of marinara sauce for dipping, and watch them vanish quickly.
9. Stuffed Bread Sticks
Stuffed Bread Sticks take a classic game-day snack to the next level.
Soft, chewy breadsticks are stuffed with your choice of tasty ingredients-think pepperoni and cheese, spinach and feta, or even buffalo chicken-and then baked until golden and delicious.
I experiment with different fillings, and it’s always a joy to see my friends’ faces light up when they take a bite and discover the delicious surprise inside.
Serve them with a side of marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping, and watch them quickly become a favorite.
10. Pizza Bread
Last but not least, Pizza Bread is a Super Bowl classic.
This pull-apart bread is loaded with gooey cheese, savory pizza sauce, and your choice of toppings, making it a customizable and fun dish everyone will love.
Best of all?
It’s super easy to make-simply layer the ingredients on a loaf of Italian bread and bake until golden and melty.
Serve with a side of warm marinara sauce for the ultimate game day experience.
