super bowl food


Did you hear?

The Super Bowl is in mere days!

People are usually interested in the game, the commercials or the food. I’ll let you guess which category I fall under…

But yesterday, my sports-obsessed husband asked if we were going to have fun Super Bowl food. (He falls under all three categories).

“Ummm, obviously” I replied.

When I asked him if he had any requests he responded with this:

“Chicken wings, nachos, seared scallops, bacon-wrapped scallops, bacon-wrapped shrimp,” and this continued for minutes.

 I won’t serve solely junk food on Super Bowl Sunday – I like to have a mix of indulgent, delicious, cheesy foods along with a few vegetables thrown into the mix.

Here are some of the things on our standard menu, or that have caught my eye in the past few days.

Super Bowl Food: 



Are you watching the game, the commercials or eating the food?

    I am excited to watch the commercials! I have missed them the last couple years. And of course I’m going to make some yummy treats =)

    I’m in it for the game and the food. I’m not sure what I’m making yet for the party I’m headed to, so thanks for the ideas!

    I also fall into all three categories. Not only that, but I’m hosting a party this year and am in charge of the food! In other words, a list VERY similar to your husband’s has been running through my mind all week- so much pressure! I want to make all the food!

      I wish we were having a party! I want to make a ton of food but it is just the two of us and, well, that just wouldn’t be good! :)

    That mushroom pic just made my stomach growl! I’m not a football or commercial fan, but I’m definitely a dip fan!

    Is it bad I’m being a party pooper about the game because the Packers are not in it?! :) But these recipes get me excited!

    I’m definitely going to be watching the commercials more than the game…and gossiping with friends in between!
