15 Bites, Dips & Nibbles for Game Day Recipes


In my opinion, it’s not Super Bowl Sunday unless there’s a table groaning under the weight of as many cheese-laden and bacon-flecked dishes as possible. This game day, start things off right with a tray of warm bacon-wrapped potato bites. These one-bite wonders are only to be made if there’s a crowd to help prevent you from eating them all. Follow them up with double-garlicky garlic bread, spicy jalapeño hummus, meatball sliders, or maybe a round of pretzel bites — these are the nibbles that will see us through all the fumbles, bad calls, and missed field goals that are sure to come.

Cheesy Chicken & Mozzarella Meatball Sliders

 Since the Super Bowl will dependably last into the evening, I like to have a few warm dishes that can be brought out during the commercials. Cheesy Chicken & Mozzarella Sliders are nice for something a little more substantive, plus you can make the meatballs ahead and freeze them until game day. You also can’t go wrong with Double-Garlic & Herb Garlic Bread and Baked Bacon & Cheddar Jalapeño Poppers. So good.

Looking for a dish to take to a friend’s house? I’ve found that deviled eggs are always welcome, and our recipe for Smoky Deviled Eggs with Greek Yogurt is one of my favorites. That Roasted Jalapeño and Lime Hummus also tends to be a potluck star — its combination of flavors is a surprise at first, but the bowl is always empty by the end of the party.

Denver VS Seattle: Super Bowl Recipes for the Win

Source: – 

I haven’t always been a fan of football. Coming from a home in which the female population is dominant (even the family dog is a girl; my poor dad is greatly outnumbered), football never had a chance. It wasn’t until I started dating and spending time with a sports guy and SportsCenter was always on in the background that I gave football any notice at all.

With no choice but to watch the games, I came to realize — I actually liked the sport! I liked the athleticism of the players as they made unbelievable throws and catches. I liked the crunching sound of one man hitting another in an effort to block a pass. I liked the pace of the game, the roar of the crowd, the excitement of a touchdown. And best of all, I liked — no, loved — the food!

Just as much as the SuperBowl is a celebration of the game, the game is a celebration of food. All season long, viewers across the country pack up their coolers and break out the grill for tailgating galore. It is more than wings and burgers and steaks. People take pride in the food they prepare for game day. And when it comes time for the Big Game, fans pull out all the stops.

Bronco BratThough I am not a fan of either team (we’ll get ‘em next year, Giants) and I can’t decide which team to root for, I know my Super Bowl party guests will likely be favoring one team over another and the room will soon be divided. I decided to play up that rivalry by making a dish from each team’s home stadium. What better way to cheer on a team than by eating their food!? So I did a little research and here is what I found.

For the Denver Bronco fans, the Bronco Brat. This brat is simmered in beer before being cooked on the grill and loaded with grilled peppers, onions, and sauerkraut. Try your own with this Beer Simmered Bratwurst with Onions and Sauerkraut recipe.

BurgerFor the Seattle Seahawks fans, CenturyLink Field rolled out “The Beast” Burger in honor of their running back Marshawn Lynch. A burger piled high with two beef patties, two pieces of bacon, cheddar cheese, a few slices of ham, onion rings, lettuce, tomato, and red onion with a side of fries, and Marshawn’s favorite, a bag of skittles. Make your own version with this Jalapeno Cheeseburger with Bacon and Grilled Onions recipe and put a bowl of Skittles on the table.

Football BrowniesFor those who don’t care which team wins and are more interested in the commercials than the game, here are some Football Brownies to get you in the spirit!

Sensational Super Bowl Party Food

While the NFL’s top teams face off on the gridiron, make sure you’re serving touchdown-worthy eats. These recipes are perfect for your Super Bowl party menu.

Onion Rings

Delicately battered onion rings can be made at home without fuss; seltzer is the secret ingredient. A spider — a wide and shallow wire skimmer — is the best tool for removing onion rings and fried parsley from the hot oil; if you don’t have one, use a big slotted spoon.

Pigs in a Blanket

Caramelized onions and hot dogs are finger-food ready when wrapped in rich butter pastry.

Potato Chips with Malt Vinegar

A sort-of potato chip-French fry hybrid, these oven-baked beauties harness the best of both worlds — crispy outside and all tender bite inside.

Veggie Nachos

Serve nachos straight from the oven so the corn chips remain crunchy and the cheese is nice and oozy.

Potato Skins

Celebrate the end of football season with our fully loaded skins. They weigh in at just 120 calories per serving versus the classic’s 350, and have one-fifth the saturated fat. Our secret: lighter ingredients (reduced-fat sour cream, Pecorino cheese) that packs a lot of flavor. Touchdown!

Spicy-Sweet Pretzel Mix

One handful is never enough of this crunchy bar snack, which goes great with beer or soda.

Chile-Lime Cashews

It’s a bright idea to add citrus to classic party nuts.

Boneless Buffalo Wings and Spicy Blue Cheese Dip

Sink your teeth into these spicy chicken breast tenders instead of the traditional, skin-on buffalo wings. We’ve dramatically cut the saturated fat and sodium in this party favorite. Our lower-fat spicy blue cheese dip has a generous amount of cayenne pepper for fans of hot wings — omit the cayenne if you’re serving this to a less spicy crowd.

Chicago Deep-Dish-Style Veggie Pizza Recipe

This make-at-home Chicago deep-dish pizza is as flavorful and fast as delivery — at a fraction of the cost.

Meatball Parmigiana Sliders

Meatballs coated in marinara sauce, smothered with cheese, and sandwiched in brioche rolls are a party-perfect nibble. For tender meatballs, combine the ingredients gently and don’t pack the meat too tightly.

Cheesesteaks with Peppers and Onions

Roast the beef for these cheesesteaks in advance, then assemble with caramelized onions, peppers, and melted provolone just before your guests arrive.

Recipe: Cheesesteaks with Peppers and Onions

Kick-Butt Chili

Crush one or two tortilla chips over this chili for a little crunch and wash it down with an ice-cold beer.

Recipe: Kick-Butt Chili

Barbecue Pork Sandwiches with Cabbage Slaw

Hungry guests will fill up on these easier-than-ever barbecue pork sandwiches, a twist on the classic Southern pulled pork sandwich. The secret to this flavorful pork tenderloin lies in basting the meat with a 5-minute bbq sauce.

Football Favorites from


Heather’s food is amazing.  Check out her website for recipes.  Here’s a sample of what her website looks like…

It wasn’t until recently that my hubby got into football. I remember very well, the conversation we had not long after we got married (8 1/2 years ago), about how pleased both he and I were that he wasn’t into watching sports. We talked about how nice it was to spend weekends not thinking about when the next game was on or to not have to pay for cable.

But oh! How time changes all!

We still have kept our wits about not paying for cable –if only due to the fact that he can find most everything online– but our weekends during football season are definitely filled with everything we thought they never would be. But you know what? I don’t mind. I’ve even been known to get into a good game every now and again (how about that last Ravens @ Broncos!? Holy Crap!). But what I like even more is the excuse I now have to make good football-watching food. I’m a sucker for all things deep-fried, dip-able, and other-wise not-so-good for my derriere. What can I say?

With the Super Bowl right around the corner I thought I’d round-up a few of our favorite snacks from the archives. I’ll also be posting a few new football-friendly recipes over the next few weeks to get you ready for the big day, so stay tuned.

Queso Blanco Dip

First up is one of my all-time favorite dips- Queso Blanco. Creamy, cheesy, slightly spicy and perfect for nachos. This wins over many hearts every time I make it. (Click on the pictures to view recipes)

Queso Blanco Dip

Hot and Cheesy Bacon Dip

If you’ve never experienced this, I exhort you to do so immediately.


 Pizza Dip

Creamy and cheesy on the bottom smothered with your favorite pizza toppings. Perfect with warm, sliced bread!


 Winger’s Sticky Fingers Copycat

These might be my favorite food of all time, I dunno. It’s something about the crispy chicken smothered in a sweet, sticky, and spicy sauce. Once they are dipped in ranch you’re in for it.


 Saucy Slow-Cooker BBQ Sandwiches

Slow-cooked with peperoncinis, cola, and a myriad of other flavors, this beef has serious flavor. Topping them with onion rings is the absolute best way to eat them.

Saucy Crock Pot BBQ Beef Sandwiches

 Sweet Ham and Swiss Sliders

These babies are the single most popular recipe on HLF. They’re flavorful, crowd-pleasing, and can be assembled ahead of time and baked just before serving.

Sweet Ham and Swiss Sliders

Fancy Pants Street Vendor Hot Dogs

If you really want to impress your football-watching crew, fire up the grill and put some of these bad boys on.  Best. Hotdogs. Ever.

Fancy Pants Hot Dogs

Bite-Sized Boston Cream Pies

I can’t very well end this round-up without at least one sweet treat! These mini cakes are the perfect, bite-sized compliment to a very savory and heartburn inducing spread.

Go! Fight! Win!
