Game Day Menu Ideas

Growing up, my family never watched football. We were more of a hockey and baseball kind of clan. But every year we had a big ole Super Bowl Sunday party. I was infinitely envious of my younger sister, whose birthday happens to fall right around the Super Bowl, for she had a guaranteed birthday party each year, long after the rest of us had been weaned off of annual birthday celebrations.

In college, I briefly and half-heartedly tried to get into the whole football thing. I watched games on TV with my new college friends and looked to them to explain the ins and outs of the activity I was so hopelessly clueless about. But, my interest in football was short-lived. Not long after that, I met my husband, who’s more of a guitar and drum kind of guy than a sports fan. So, football remains largely absent from my life.

But in true, inherited non-football-fan fashion, my husband and I are throwing a Super Bowl party this year. Our game day menu is still under construction, but will almost certainly include some adaptation of these Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins and a decadent German Chocolate Cake in honor of my sister’s birthday. (Those recipes to follow after the Superbowl!)

  1. Your pizzas look amazing and the deviled eggs look scrumptious! I’m slowly getting my family into football because I really enjoy it!
    Have a great party!!

  2. Great menu ideas!! I will be adding the creole deviled eggs, chipotle salsa and the jalepeno poppers to our chicken/andouille gumbo and buffalo chicken rolls and 100 calorie moist chocolate cupcakes.

  3. yumm those jalapeño poppers look fabulous

  4. Wow, love the fabulous array of party food…each dish looks more incredible than the previous one…mmmmmmm.

  5. I’m not a huge NFL fan, so the Super Bowl wouldn’t be such a big deal to me if it wasn’t for all the awesome food involved! Buffalo chicken anything is my favorite. Can I come to your party? 🙂
