Who’s gearing up for Super Bowl LII to watch the Patriots and the Eagles? MORE IMPORTANTLY….who’s gearing up for the best TV commercials of the year, AND the most delicious food to go with it? Here are our top picks of Tasty Super Bowl Eats to prepare for this year’s Super Bowl on February 4!
GourmetGiftBaskets.com is based in New Hampshire, so we’re obviously really excited about the Patriots being in their 10th Super Bowl, with the hopes to repeat as back-to-back Super Bowl Champions. Most of us will be watching with our Tom Brady jerseys, and snacking on gourmet (and some not so gourmet, but delicious) football game-day snacks.
This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs provides all of the flavor of classic buffalo wings, without all the tedious effort of frying chicken wings, AND without all the guilt of greasy chicken wings. Ground chicken and buffalo sauce star with a savory drizzle of ranch or bleu cheese dressing. These could also be made ahead of time, and then transferred to the slower cooker to be reheated and kept warm for the game.
Let me just start off by saying that this recipe only calls for 3 ingredients. How much more simple can you get? The best part is that you put all 3 ingredients into your slow cooker and just let it do its thing! All you need to do here is add a couple packages of cocktail wieners, with a jar of grape jelly and a jar of chili sauce. Combine them all together in the slow cooker, set it on low and let it go for 4-6 hours. You can also make this recipe with a bottle of BBQ Sauce (I prefer Sweet Baby Rays). So easy to put together and really, quite delicious.
It just wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t mention that popcorn is also a game-day staple. With so many different directions to go with your popcorn snacks for the Super Bowl, really the options are endless. Keep in mind, it’s always nice to show your pride for your favorite NFL Team with a popcorn tin! Whether you’re rooting for the New England Patriots or the Philadelphia Eagles, I’m sure we can all agree that popcorn is a great half-time snack.
This is quite possibly the most festive appetizer to serve for your game-day Super Bowl party! Traditional pigs in a blanket are arranged together in a football shape, baked, and then finished with a lace design of yellow mustard. You could totally swap this out for any condiment that you like. I think the extra step of covering the “blankets” in an egg wash and sprinkling on some fresh-cracked pepper and a little course sea salt, takes this appetizer to a new level.
I think I’m with just about everyone else on planet earth when I say that I love Doritos. I don’t eat them often, but when I do, it’s definitely in this taco salad. I make this recipe for pot lucks and parties, and it’s always the first thing gone. It’s that good. You can totally swap out the ground beef for ground turkey ( I do!) and add in any other taco fixings that you like.
Enjoy, and go Pats!
