Game Day Party Food Ideas

It’s the Seahawks VS Broncos for Super Bowl XLVIII and that only means one thing to me:


Honest to goodness, I don’t care a thing about football but I really do love football snacks.
So unhealthy. So good.

Actually, this year my friends and are celebrating a long overdue Secret Santa gift exchange.  I know. It seems to get later and later every year.

Anyway, whatever you plan on doing for the Super Bowl (and whether or not it involves gifts) here are some food idea to make your Super Bowl super delicious!

fried guac

Fried Guacamole from Eat, Bake, Drink, Cook
This looks AMAZING.  Anything fried is delicious of course, but I’m pretty sure that fried Guacamole is genius.

hot sausage dip

Sausage Dip from Plain Chicken
I don’t eat much meat, and I don’t watch much football, but I know this is a game day classic if you haven’t made this yet, it’s practically a requirement. (Bonus: easy peasy sausage squeeze-y)


Blue Moon Cupcakes from Spoon Fork Bacon

Denver Broncos fans, here’s your excuse to make these cupcakes.  Blue moon cupcakes garnished with orange zest.
If you want to make it more obvious, throw some food coloring in there or top with a blueberry.

vanilla fruit dip

Creamy Vanilla Fruit Dip from Love, Pomegranate House

Seahawks fans, alternate fruit skewers with grapes and blueberries for a green and blue theme.

spicy garlic wings

A Buffalo Wild Wings Copy Cat Recipe from Around My Family Table

Well, these will be gone quick.


Spinach Cheese Dip from Gimme Some Oven

I think Super Bowl is synonomous with dips and I love a good spinach and cheese dip (it’s got spinach in it, so it’s healthy, right?)

Cajun Pretzels

Cajun Pretzels from The Kitchen is My Playground

Speaking of dips, you might need something to do the actual dipping… however these pretzels seem tasty enough that no dip is required.


Pizza Swirl Bread from How Sweet Eats

Mmmmm… add whatever “toppings” you’d like to this yummy bread.
This looks really, really good.

whipped feta

Whipped Feta on Crostini by What’s Gaby Cooking

Alright you little game-day-foodie, not impressed with sausage and cheese dip? Top crostinis with whipped feta (top with some tomatoes and basil).
I never thought about whipped feta before actually and now I’m having a hard time thinking of anything else.


Baked Zucchini Fries from Health Magazine

I know what you’re thinking. I’ve turned on you, I’ve gone healthy. How could I possibly list a fry substitute.
Zucchini fries are actually quite good.


Vegetarian Chili from Two Peas and Their Pod

Don’t forget the vegetarians! I always like it when I see a recipe for “easy” chili, because really, isn’t that the point?
Anyway, if you’re a newb to vegetarian chili, this recipe is a good basic.

potato bar

This game starts at 6:30 folks, that’s hungry time! Fill your guests with yummy goodness (and minimal effort on your part) with a baked potato bar.
Toss those bad boys in the crock pot to keep them warm and set out an array of toppings. Stick to the classics with butter, shredded cheese, bacon, sour cream, chives.  Or get fancy with sautéed onion and mushrooms, a variety of cheeses, chili, baked beans, broccoli, creamed spinach, ham, or whatever you can think of.
Set them out and let people create their own masterpiece.


Then of course, you can go all out and make whatever the heck this is:

woah football

You guys… there are bread shaped cars!!!
This is intense. If any of you do this you better #RVA_mom on Instagram ’cause I gotta see that.
