The Best of Super Bowl Food

The Super Bowl is a great excuse for a party, and any good party will have scrumptious vittles to enjoy. This Sunday I’m heading out to a little get-together to enjoy the game (and food) with some friends. While I know which two teams I’ll be watching do battle, I have no idea what kind of grub will be served.

I’m a fan of the “grazing approach” when partaking in food at a party. Give me a number of small things, some tasty appetizer types of food, or hand held items that I can go to town on, and I’m good. Taco dip, meats, cheeses and crackers, buffalo chicken dip, pulled pork nachos, chicken wings, pizza, BBQ ribs or meatballs, sliders, guacamole, and anything with bacon on it are a few good items to get me started.

I’m even down for a good healthy veggie tray.

And speaking of veggies, our own Jeff Berckes asked me to share this site from ex-NFL player David Carter, who briefly suited up for the Chicago Bears. Jeff is especially fond of the vegan queso, saying it “makes some of the best nachos I've ever had.” he adds that it doesn’t leave you with “that ‘I just ate half a pound of cheese’ feeling in your gut for the next few days.”

Here are a few items I’ve either tried out or am hoping to try out. If you guys have any good recipes, be sure to share them in the comment section.

How To Make Soft Pretzel Bites

If you love Auntie Anne's, you need to try these Soft Pretzel Bites. Full recipe:

These pretzel bits turned out surprisingly good, I just had them with three different mustards, but that cheese sauce would have set it off.

I like my guacamole on the chunky side, so I’d probably mash it instead.

Bacon makes everything better...

Since it’s the Super Bowl, I’d probably just fry those, but baking is the healthier option.

That one is a classic. I’ve substituted blue cheese dressing instead of the ranch, but you could also crumble in some blue cheese.

What other types of food are you guys hoping to get to this Sunday?

I joined the Fire and Brimmstone podcast to talk about the Super Bowl, so go give it a listen.
