Game Day Snacks for Super Bowl Sunday
Are you stoked for Super Bowl Sunday? There's so much to get excited about: the football game, gathering with family and friends, the half time show (Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are headlining!) and THE SNACKING. During the Super Bowl, fans will eat roughly 27 million chicken wings and 12.5 million pizzas!
This year the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. It's been 25 years since the 49er's won a Superbowl title. It's been 50 years since the Kansas City Chiefs have been to the Superbowl, and the Chiefs (and their loyal fans) are hungry for a win.
Speaking of hungry, what do you plan to snack on during the game? Whether you're hosting a Superbowl watch party or taking along a snack to share, we've got a few great suggestions lined up!
Skip the crazy waiting time for pizza delivery which can range from 30 minutes to six hours on gameday and whip up a hearty pizza to share in your Taste of Home® Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet. Taste of Home's Deep Dish Sausage Pizza is a hearty pie featuring pork sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, onions and lots of gooey mozzarella cheese.
If you're craving a little Tex Mex, try Taste of Home's Queso Baked Nachos. This triple-layer nacho recipe contains a hefty amount of protein with the ground beef and refried beans so that game watchers will stay fuller, longer. This generously sized recipe fits perfectly in a 13 x 9-inch pan.
Finger foods are a great option to serve during the game as they're easy to hold and eat with one hand. Hot Ham & Cheese Sliders are crowd-pleasing buttery delights are easy to put together before the game, and you can bake just before serving. Pair with a vegetable tray to give your football fans a crunchy game day treat.
Buffalo Chicken Dip is a popular Super Bowl snack. This tangy, creamy dip is the most popular Super Bowl snack in Connecticut, Georgia, Kansas, New Jersey, the great state of Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin!
When salty snacks are the life of the party, staying hydrated is key. Offer your guests a selection of beverages. Adding a signature cocktail to your menu is a great option if you want to serve an alcoholic beverage but keep the preparations minimal. The old-fashioned Moscow Mule has gained popularity in recent years. Bottled beer, bottled water, and sodas are easy to keep chilled in a beverage tub or cooler.
