15 Super Bowl Recipes to whip up for the big game! Pick between poppable bites, healthier dips, easy crock pot recipes, and more.
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!
Feta-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Full of that signature flavor and spice, yet made with low-fat ground chicken and bold seasonings, Feta-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs will be the first appetizer to go at your football game get-together. Make ahead of time then keep ‘em warm in a crock pot!
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
Buffalo Chicken Poppers with Avocado Bleu Cheese Dip combine a spicy filling stuffed inside buttery crescent rolls with a cooling avocado bleu cheese dip. Kind of upscale feeling, but only you and I will know they’re a cinch to make. ; )
Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken Sammies with Crunchy Apple Slaw
Chicken breasts are slow cooked in homemade bourbon-BBQ sauce then shredded and topped with smoky gouda cheese and Crunchy Apple Slaw in Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken Sammies with Crunchy Apple Slaw. I ate leftovers of this dish for about a week straight and never got sick of it!
Bacon-Wrapped Almond-Stuffed Dates
One of my Top 3 appetizer recipes of all time, Bacon-Wrapped Almond-Stuffed Dates are chewy, salty, and sweet. PERFECTION.
Best Ever French Onion Dip
Best Ever French Onion Dip tastes just like AE Dairy’s French Onion Dip (Midwesterners rejoice!) but is easily made right at home. Serve with chips or crudite for a satisfying homemade dip option.
Pickle Bites are a Midwestern delicacy, mmkay? Nothing is easier nor more delish than this appetizer dish!
Pulled Pork Taquitos with Chipotle-Ranch Dipping Sauce
Your friends and family will go bonkers for slow cooked shredded pork mixed with cheese then baked inside crispy corn tortillas. Pair these taquitos with smoky Chipotle Ranch Dipping sauce for an awesome finger-food option.
