Super Bowl Party Food
When it’s Super Bowl Season, it’s not just the big game that most sports aficionados are looking forward to; aside from cheering on their favorite teams, it’s the festive and scrumptious super bowl party food that makes the season memorable. If you hosting a Super Bowl Party this year, you should call your caterer to plan a fun and tasty feast your guests will enjoy… but in the meantime, there are a few super bowl party food favorites to consider.
Super Bowl Party Food
The great thing about Super Bowl Parties is that it can be casual, comfortable, and very laid back. No need for gourmet food. Stick to good-old, home-style comfort food. Simply work with your caterer to make the dishes coherent and to make sure that they are served in a convenient and functional way.
For starters, have a station where appetizers can be served. Sample dishes include: chicken quesadillas, pretzels, nachos, pizza pinwheels, chipotle sliders, vegetable wraps with tapanade, and meatballs. There are, of course, other Super Bowl party staples that you and your caterer can incorporate into the menu as well. Such party favorites include sloppy joes, buffalo wings, burritos, fajitas, and stuffed potatoes.
Topping the list is chili. Is there anything more popular than chili? Have a chili station where a large pot of hot chili can sit. Include bowls for its many toppings. Guests can choose from cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, chives, jalapeno, and chips. Do not forget the hot sauce on the side!
You can also have your caterer set-up DIY food stations. During half-time, guests can enjoy assembling their favorite foods such as deli sandwiches, tacos, burgers, and pizza,
Platters can also be prepared by caterers as a means to serve the food items. A platter can have an array of cheese sticks, vegetable sticks, breaded vegetables, and chicken nuggets. Do not forget the dips. Dips such as onion dip, artichoke dip, tomato and cheese dip should always be available. Another attractive yet very flavorful dip idea is the 7-layer fiesta dip. This dip is composed of cream cheese, taco seasoning, guacamole, salsa, lettuce, cheddar cheese, green onions, and olives. These ingredients are simply layered on a trifle bowl and served alongside a platter of veggie sticks, sliced bread, potato chips, tortilla chips, or bread sticks. A dip made from a mixture of creamed spinach, mozzarella sticks, parmesan cheese, and sour cream is another classic.
For a healthier option, a platter of fruit should also be offered to guests. Have a tray with an assortment of fruits in season, such as melons, grapes, apples, watermelon, mangoes, kiwi fruit, etc. You can even have them skewered with toothpicks to make mini kebabs. Offer a yogurt and honey dip on the side for your guests who prefer their super bowl party food on the healthier side.
