While we aren’t really football watchers around here (Sean’s die-hard for fútbol), we do get down with some game-day fare. I mean, I’m into game days and the Superbowl…if there are snacks and treats galore. Below are just a few recipes that I think would totes be Big Game appropriate.
QUESO, y’all! It’s a cheesy, spicy, gooey hot tub for chips and other dip-ables. It’s a processed-cheese-free dream.
There isn’t much to say here, I mean it’s pickles dipped in beer batter, then deep fried. These are arguably the best-ever snack to accompany a super chilled beer. Photo below by me, recipe on my girl–Megan’s–blog.
All the goodness of a corn dog, miniaturized on a stick. These pretty much eliminate the awkwardness that is eating a corn dog. Plus, you can have like, half a dozen or more!
In case you want another option besides the standard chili (I know I’m not kidding anyone here, chili is the business), this potato soup is just a bit lighter, totally filling and warm, and can be topped with all kinds of goodness…just like chili.
Streusel-Topped and Rocky Road Brownies
Brownies from scratch are among the easiest, most satisfying desserts around. They can feed a crowd and adaptations are endless. I love these two brownies–I mean, crunchy streusel or gooey, nutty rocky road. It’s a tough choice, but one could totally make both!
Everyone knows the best part of the “big game” is the food! Well, I guess that’s what all non-football fans always say 🙂 I mean, you can’t even say it’s the SB or you’ll be fined a million dollars, right? We prefer fútbol, too! The boys are way cuter 🙂
hail, yeah! they are way cuter 😉 I’m glad we agree on all fronts!
What a spread! This all looks amazing…especially those brownies! 🙂
Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe
This post came at the perfect time. I was just invited to a Superbowl party and offered to bring a savoury snack! I have no idea who is even playing in the Superbowl, but I’m excited for the food!
I never know either, I’m seriously only ever in it for the snacks and drinks!
I still need that cheese dip!
hell yeah, you do!
OHHH the brownies. You know, here in Australia we are seriously lacking in the area of big ‘game day’ get togethers! I think I might have to introduce this tradition to the country. Just to get the snacks, of course.
you totally should…even if it’s just an excuse 😉
Maggie @ A Bitchin' Kitchen
I want ALL of this, especially the streusel-topped brownies! I’m going to a Superbowl Party on Sunday, strictly for the food. It’s the only thing I like about football 🙂
way to be, Maggie 😉
Oh there are some tasty things in this list! I’m with you on the beer-battered pickles. Tried them a few years ago and never looked back – best. combination. ever.
totally, right?! Thanks, Jess!
These all look super bowl worthy. I have always wanted to try fried pickles. They sound so yummy!
Thanks, Laura! They are delish!
