 15 Super Bowl Recipes

Are you ready for some footballlll?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or, ahem, are like me and recently Googled “Super Bowl 2014” to find out when the big game will be taking place) you know that the two best teams in the NFL (debatable) will be going head-to-head in just over 2 weeks on Sunday, February 2.

You’re welcome, people who are just in it for the food.

Hey, I’m right there with ya’! I can’t I say I have a lot invested in the four teams vying for a coveted spot in a certain New Jersey stadium, but I can say I’m excited as heck for the food that will be served at the Super Bowl-watching party Ben and I plan on hosting. And by “party” I of course mean the two of us and our baby monitor. #goodtimes

Anyway, I feel like the Super Bowl is a pretty huge foodie event, so I gathered up 15 of my favorite dip, appetizer, and slow cooker recipes that are just begging to be included in your game-day feast. Regardless of what team you’re rooting for, I hope you enjoy the food!


Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches are a mouthwatering, slow-cooked version of the popular hot sandwich recipe. Just 5 ingredients in this hearty meal that’s perfect for half time. Check your grocery store’s olive bar for the Giardiniera mixture if you can’t find it in the pickle aisle.

Crab Rangoon Bites

Crab Rangoon Bites are crispy, frozen phyllo shells stuffed with creamy crab filling. They’re so much easier than stuffing and frying traditional crab rangoon, but just as delicious.

Greek Dip Platter

Greek Dip Platter is a light and refreshing appetizer recipe with 7 layers of bold Greek flavors. This dip comes together in just a few minutes and is great for transporting, too!

Roasted Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins

Proof that big things come in small packages, Roasted Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins combine the best of jalapeno poppers and potato skins. These creamy, spicy bites are delicious and so addicting. I recommend them to anybody requesting a football watching-party app!

Mini Corn Dog Muffins

The original Mini Corn Dog Muffins! A fun and yummy snack recipe for any special or ordinary occasion. Use the homemade cornbread recipe I included in the post, or a box of cornbread mix if you’re short on time.

The Best Fruit Dip EVER

The Best Fruit Dip Ever is just three ingredients that result in a luxurious and perfectly sweet fruit dip. My family has been making this dip for over 20 years. It really is the best ever!

Lighter Bacon Cheeseburger Dip

Lighter Bacon Cheeseburger Dip is decadent-tasting but much lighter than traditional creamy dips. Take to a friend’s house then broil the top just before serving. Yum-o.

Cheese Stuffed Meatball Sliders

Serve these super-cute, ultra-delicious, Cheese Stuffed Meatball Sliders at the beginning of the game. They’re the perfect 4-bite dish to get your appetite revved!

Buffalo Chicken Poppers with Avocado Bleu Cheese Dip

  1. I’ve been living under a rock too! Have no idea when the Super Bowl is, but this compilation is great! The Greek dip and stuffed meatballs are my top picks of the list. And anything with buffalo flavor is required to be eaten by me! Looks like I better get busy in the kitchen! Thanks for the recipes Kristin!

  2. I honestly thought the Super Bowl was last Sunday. When I kept seeing Super Bowl recipes being posted on Monday I was totally confused. Google to the rescue! These all look amazing and perfect for even a non-Super Bowl watcher. I am drooling over the feta stuffed buffalo chicken metaballs!

  3. Madison 01.17.2014

    Super Bowl IS about the food, right? NOT football…in my opinion. :) So this list makes me happy!

  4. I am just like you, I do the Super Bowl for the food and the commercials! We have always made tacos in the past, but this year I am going to switch it up and your post came right in time! I am thinking of trying those Crock Post Bourbon Chicken Sammie’s. They look easy and super yummy!

  5. Amyfp 01.17.2014

    I wasn’t sure of the date of the SB but I was informed that we have to watch this year because U2 is making an announcement/releasing a new song during a SB commercial.
    Obviously, we will need these delicious snacks to sustain us through the football portions!

  6. Chicago Jogger 01.17.2014

    Haha! When I saw this post I thought to myself, “is the Super Bowl THIS weekend?!” Now I know:) Everything looks delicious.

  7. Kelly A. 01.17.2014

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE pickle bites, my family always uses dried beef instead of corned beef. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find too much dried beef in the South. I’m sure I can find corned beef though. Thanks!!

  8. Mary s 01.17.2014

    I kinda want to assign a recipe to all my friends so I can try everything…

  9. Jamie 01.17.2014

    Awesome spread! My husband requests the pickle bites, only I add a little mustard to the cream cheese and use ham instead of corned beef. Now I have to try the creamy pickle dip version…

  10. I’m so much more about the football food than the football itself (I actually just typed “foodball” – shows just where my head is)! Last Sunday we had the games on, but I couldn’t tell you who was playing. I could, however, tell you any little thing you wanted to know about the big batch of wings we made! Mmmm.

    Thanks for compiling these recipes! I’m sure I’ll be on app-duty for Super Bowl Sunday and these’ll come in handy. :)

  11. Sarah 01.17.2014

    Oh, my goodness. I am in love with everything in this post, especially the crab rangoons. Mmmmm!

  12. Barbara 01.17.2014

    For me, the Super Bowl is all about the food and the commercials!! I don’t care who’s playing, unless my son’s favorite team is in it…in that case, my husband and I like to root for the other side!! HaHa I think I’ll make the Bacon Cheeseburger Dip and the Mini Corndog Muffins!! Great recipes…thank you!!

  13. Kimberlee 01.17.2014

    Pickle Bites… I make mine a little differently – sweet pickle and ham with the cream cheese. :) I think I’ll be making a few of these for this Sunday since the Blakhawks (NHL) play at 11:30 and then the 2 football games are on… Superbowl pre-game and the MLK JR holiday Monday – 3 weekend awesomeness! Thanks for the inspiration and ideas.

  14. Dawn 01.17.2014

    Yay for Superbowl food! I’ll be visiting my parents that weekend and I think they’re having a little get together. I’m hoping to make the buffalo chicken poppers for everyone.

  15. So many of these look good, but I the one that I am looking forward to trying is that Italian Beef. Thanks for such a great selection.

  16. shobelyn 01.18.2014

    I am so confused what to make first. Your recipes look so beautiful. I cannot handle it. I keep on looking back and forth of your pictures. AMAZING!

  17. My family calls those Pickle Bites “Alligator Eyes” and yes, they’re definitely a Midwestern thing! haha

  18. Mantitlement 01.18.2014

    Can’t wait to make the buffalo chicken meatballs- they look awesome. Although I do love the actual football during the Super Bowl, the food is definitely what makes the party. Nicely done!

  19. Alexandra Aimee 01.20.2014

    These look so good they almost make me want to watch football. Almost… :)
