Super Bowl Party Ideas -- Need some Super Bowl Party Ideas? I'm your girl. Here's a list of easy to make foods that'll knock their cleats off. From main dish to dessert, you're sure to find food to keep the crowd happy! |

I put together this little game-day, Super Bowl Party Foods post to give those of you who join me in rejoicing in the privilege of eating gobs of dips and bites of yum all day long, my favorite ideas for party food on the upcoming day where boys throw around a brown, oblong ball. 

No offense intended there if football is your jam, just stating things from this blissfully ignorant point of view.  😊

So, let’s get on with the eating ideas!

Let’s start with finger foods. You can use egg roll wrappers to make the yummiest packets of deliciousness — savory or sweet! Our favorite is Cream Cheese Stuffed Fried Pickles. They are over-the-top amazing!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Fried Pickles -- Because what could be better than the crunch of a salty pickle tucked in a blanket of cream cheese and wrapped and fried in healthy oil? Three ingredients and you have an easy showstopper! |

Southwestern Egg Rolls with Bacon are a finger food packed with chicken, bacon, beans, and spices and make an easy-to-grab showstopper.  Fun to eat and fun to serve!

Southwestern Eggrolls with Bacon -- Southwestern veggies, seasoned chicken and beans, bacon and cheese all surrounded by a crispy egg roll wrapper fried in coconut oil. |

Or make them sweet with warm, silky, gooooozy hazelnut-chocolate dripping down your chin as you bite into a crispy shell fried in coconut oil and packed full of warm banana. I mean, does life get better?

Fried Banana and Hazelnut-Chocolate Rolls - Warm, silky, gooooozy hazelnut-chocolate dripping down your chin as you bite into a crispy shell fried in coconut oil and packed full of warm banana. |

Of course, you can always make a pan of THE Mac and Cheese and earn yourself hero status.

THE Mac and Cheese -- This recipe for THE mac and cheese has been featured on several top mac and cheese lists. It is the perfect base recipe for classic mac and cheese. |

How about my newest favorite appetizer recipe that makes tiny little bites of your favorite customizable cheeseburger flavors with my Cheeseburger Meatballs? Each bite is such a delicious, easy to eat savory treat stuffed with cheese and decorated with all things cheeseburger.

Cheeseburger Meatballs l--Juicy, flavorful, cheese-stuffed balls of yum decorated and customized to your taste to create the perfect platter of savory goodness mimicking your favorite cheeseburger flavors! |

Or add this herby dip to the mix and freshen everything up with some dippable veggies. Dill Veggie Dip is packed with flavor and whips up in just a couple minutes.

Dill Veggie Dip -- It's easy to whip up homemade vegetable dip with just a handful of fresh and flavorful ingredients. See ya, store-bought! |

You want dips?  We are dip nuts at our house.  I have plenty to choose from in my Recipe Index, but let’s start with Superior Smoked Whitefish Dip. It’s a crowd-pleasing dip packed with lemon, dill, garlic, and the star of the show: flaky, smoked whitefish.

Superior Smoked Whitefish Dip -- A crowd-pleasing dip packed with lemon, dill, garlic, and the star of the show, flaky smoked whitefish. |

Spice things up a bit with Bacon Ranch Jalapeño Popper Dip! The heat of the peppers combined with tangy cream and Cheddar cheeses plus the spice of ranch and crunch of bacon make for one heckuva yummy addition to your tortilla chips!

Tell me you’ve had my Dill Pickle Dip! Is this my family’s all-time favorite?

Dill Pickle Dip -- Does it get better than dill pickles, garlic and ham combined to make your potato chips happier than they've ever been? Forget French Onion. Pickle Dip is the way to dip! |

I’m not entirely sure. Because our go-to is Creamy Garlic Dip that we make almost every time we get together, and made the best when I make Homemade Potato Chips fried in coconut oil (so no greasy, fried-food regret).

Homemade Potato Chips fried in coconut oil -- There's never been a better potato chip than the warm and salted one fresh from the fryer made in coconut oil. |

Four Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip, a classic, everyone-friendly dip that you can make in a bread bowl for extra dipping pleasure!

Four Spinach Artichoke Dip == Four cheeses combine perfectly with garlic, spinach, and artichokes to create the very best version of this classic dip we all love. Bake it in a bread bowl for ultimate dipping pleasure. |

Must-have Mango Salsa is a Suuuper easy way to add another fresh element — but good luck staying away from the bowl! Use frozen mangos to keep it even simpler!

Must-Have Mango Salsa -- A delightful blend of sweet and a bit spicy (totally adjustable to taste) and comes together in minutes. Great on fish or chicken or as a snack! |

Need main dish ideas? (Don’t worry — desserts ideas coming right up!) In my experience, a soup is the perfect way to go for a crowd. Choose one everyone LOVES like my Cheeseburger Soup and it not only fills all the food gaps, but is a simple way to serve a meal if you keep it on low in the crock pot or instant pot!

Cheeseburger Soup -- Yummy, cheesy, gooey, everyone-friendly, cheesy, burgery soup. |

You’ll never go wrong in a group with Cheesy White Chili, either. It’s so very tasty and filling. — loaded with white beans, chili, and pepper jack cheese. Simply a win every single time I’ve ever served it!

Cheesy White Chili -- Cheesy, rich, slightly spicy white chili. Loaded with white beans, chili, and pepper jack cheese, this is how you do winter comfort food! |

Keep this Pepperoncini Beef in the crock pot with cheese and buns next to it and you have the ideal fix-and-forget-it gap filler!

Pepperoncini Beef Sandwiches -- Flavor-packed sandwiches with beef that falls apart flavored with tangy pepperoncini peppers and smothered with cheese. |

Or take tacos OVER THE TOP with maybe my favorite meal…? You can make a taco bar with all the fixings and beef or chicken taco meat (easy Homemade Taco Seasoning here), but then add in this Pork Carnita meat and they won’t even know what hit their face! Seriously, this is the best taco you’ve ever had.

Pork Carnitas -- Packed with flavor, this is the way you make perfect pork for pork tacos. Try it once. You might forget about beef. |

And now for the sweet stuff!!! If I were having a super bowl party, I’d start right here. Fried Ice Cream Nachos are off-the-chart delicious and super fun to serve on a big platter! All the notes of fried ice cream — cinnamon, chocolate, caramel and cinnamon crisps — but perfect to serve a crowd!

Fried Ice Cream Nachos -- Cinnamon crisps, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sandwich cookies, hot fudge and caramel. All the flavors of Fried Ice Cream with much less work! |

Or make a sundae bar with all the toppings and bring a jar of the most amazing, warm, chocolatey Homemade Hot Fudge (the famous Occidental Hot Fudge, of course!) you’ve ever had in your life.  Even if their team loses, they will leave happy after having eaten this stuff.

Homemade Hot Fudge -- Rich, decadent chocolatey goodness made in minutes with staple pantry ingredients. Rumored to cure PMS, crabbiness, and awful days, this will be the only chocolate you need |

Whip up a big batch of this Homemade Caramel Corn for munching! Buttery and sweet, it’s super simple to make and always a hit!

Homemade Caramel Corn --Hot, homemade caramel drizzled over freshly popped popcorn and baked until hot and crunchy|

Tami’s Banana Bars make a huge pan to serve a group, and these oh-so-soft, sweet banana bars with a decadent vanilla frosting just tend to make everyone happy!

Tami's Frosted Banana Bars -- Soft and moist banana cake frosted with a simple yet decadent vanilla frosting. I dare you to try and eat just one! |

Jeanne’s Fudge Bars also make a huge batch and these addictive dessert bars with a chewy oat crust envelope a soft, fudgy center that will make you the most popular kid at the party without a doubt.

And drumroll, please………

You want to bring the showstopper? You’re not going to find a more fabulous presentation than this beauty! This is the recipe you choose when you want folks to swoon.  Steel Magnolia’s Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake is a decadent and creamy chocolate cheesecake encrusted with two kinds of buttery, chocolate crumbs and layered with cherries to make a delightful dessert for any special occasion.

I hope you enjoy your day of tight ends and first downs and blah, blah, blah  EATING as much as we inevitably will at our house.  Because, it really is all about the food, isn’t it? Happy Super Bowl Day, friends!
