For us, Superbowl Sunday is almost a holiday. You get to watch football (and you’d better get your fill since it’s the last football for almost 8 months) and it’s a great excuse to eat some tasty food and drink beer. Even for those who don’t like football, you’ll hopefully get to see some amusing commercials and enjoy the halftime show while enjoying good eats with friends.
With the Superbowl just one week away, it’s time to start planning your menu. For us, Superbowl Sunday is the day the appetizer/finger food reigns! It’s great to have a spread that people can graze on throughout the game and doesn’t require silverware or plates. If you’re looking for perfect gameday food, check out some of our recipes…
Southwestern Bean Dip – This is an incredible and unique dip that is sure to be gobbled up by everyone. Plus, it comes together in a matter of minutes! **FIX**
Fresh Garden Salsa – If you want to go a more traditional dip route, salsa’s a sure bet. Homemade salsa definitely outshines the stuff in the jar and can be quite easy to make, just check out our recipe. **FIX**
Sausage Balls – These tailgate staples are a terrific game day treat! They’re the perfect pop-in-your mouth size and are just plain yummy. If you happen to have any leftovers, they’re great for breakfast the next day…
Smoked Salmon Puffs – Smoked salmon is commonplace at potluck-style gatherings in Alaska. This particular form is one of my favorite ways to eat smoked salmon. Season smoked salmon and mix it with some cream cheese then stuff it in mini puffs… you’ve got heavenly bites. These will disappear very quickly so make sure you grab one when the game starts!
Tomato and Goat Cheese Tartlets – If you’re feeling a little fancy on gameday, give these little beauties a whirl. These tomato-basil-goat cheese tarts in puff pastry shells are incredibly savory. They’re not difficult to make and are a sure crowd-pleaser. Take one bite and you’ll understand why!
I’ll be making several of these dishes next Sunday plus some Maple Candied Bacon and Chocolate Chip Cookies and maybe some Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars and Mac and Cheese Bites made using our World’s Best Mac and Cheese recipe. Can’t wait… YUM!!
