Who is excited for the Super Bowl on Sunday Night? I don’t really have a preference on who wins, maybe Atlanta since they haven’t won recently. I’ve been getting more and more invested in the games, a friend of mine even suggested I look into getting a sportsbook and get into the games a little bit. But while I am looking forward to watching the game, we all know that Football Parties are ALL about the food. Remember that Fall Weekend that we celebrated my hubby’s birthday and I made a game day feast? I’ve gathered together a few other favorite food ideas for the Super Bowl or any game day for today’s Friday Favorites.


I think every Football party should have lots of finger foods and not only be focused around one dish. That means I can fill my plate with a little bit of everything right?!?

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs: What’s a game day party without something Buffalo Chicken? These are a healthy twist on the classic fried chicken wing, the meatballs are baked not fried and the buffalo sauce is homemade. Even though I believe every party should have buffalo chicken dip, if you’re looking for something different, delicious, and with the perfect amount of spicy kick, give these a try.

Cowboy Caviar: I love serving this dip with tortilla chips, but I could also eat it plain as a salad.

Cheesy Pretzel Twists: Might I suggest making this and dipping them in a spicy mustard, YUM!

Cheesy Artichoke Dip: Serve with bread or pita chips, so much cheesy goodness!

Greek Yogurt Guacamole: Adding yogurt to guac makes it so creamy, plus you get a little extra protein!

Skinny Queso Dip: I made this once and decided to add some lean ground turkey. And served with my favorite Late of July Tortilla Chips and it was a total hit!

Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza Logs: It’s not game day without pizza. But if you want to be able to enjoy other snacks, try these lighter pizza logs made with egg roll wrappers.

Loaded Baked Potato Dip: I have yet to make this recipe, but it’s definitely on my list. Can you really go wrong with cheese, bacon, and potatoes?

Chickpea Greek Salad: This might be a bit of a summery dish, but I just love veggies, chickpeas, feta, olives, and a homemade vinaigrette dressing together.

Baked Sweet Potato Skins: You’ve heard me talk about it before, this sweet and spicy combo is a match made in heaven.

Sriracha Deviled Eggs: I love any chance to spicy things up!

Crispy Garlic Sweet Potato Wedges: These are baked, have a paleo breading and spices, and are perfectly crispy.

Tater Tot Nachos: Need I say more?

Main Dishes

If you want to make a main dish for your Football Party, I of course suggest chili or anything you can make in a slow cooker so your guests can serve themselves. You can splash out for some grass-finished beef to make it extra special, too. Here are some of my favorites.

Slow Cooker Quinoa Enchilada Bake: I love that this recipe is like a thick soup, but it’s not quite a chili because of the homemade Red Enchilada Sauce.

Classic Chili Recipe: This is my favorite, I’ve tried it with both turkey and beef.

Slow Cooker Potato Soup: Nothing warms you up like potato soup!

Gourmet Hot Dogs: Fancy hot dogs, yes please! Use my favorite Applegate All Beef Hot Dogs.

White Chicken Chili: If you’re looking for something other than a tomato based chili, this is my favorite. It’s simple, but so delicious!

Crockpot Philly Cheesesteaks: Leave the meat in the slow cooker, set out some buns or rolls, and everyone can enjoy on their own time.

Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes: I’m not grilling burgers in the Winter months, so this recipe is a simple and delicious alternative for burgers on the grill.


Chewy Fudgy Homemade Brownies: The ONLY brownie recipe you’ll ever need.

Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Crush Cookies: I am making these chocolaty dense cookies for our viewing party. And visiting the actual Levain Bakery in NYC is on my bucket list.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Footballs: Love that this is an edible cookie dough recipe AND they are shaped into footballs, how cute!

Original Glazed Doughnuts: Because….. doughnuts!

Funfetti Cake: For something festive and fun.

Popcorn Puppy Chow: You all know how much I love my popcorn ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I am a sports person and the superbowl is more about the snacks for myself even, hehe.

    Great roundup! Not sure what we will be doing for the superbowl- probably staying at home. But it would still be fun to make some special snacks!

      We usually stay home as well Lisa, I really wish they changed the game to a Saturday. The thought of working on Monday leaves me want to stay in the comfort of my own home. But I also like being able to prepare my own snacks =)

    So much good food! Thanks for compiling it all! My husband wants the Patriots to win, so I guess I do too. But I’m more about the food and commercials! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was all about the Falcons (being from ATL)… but they carried on perfecting the art of disappointment when it comes to Atlanta sports. Whatever. I was really just there for Lady Gaga and the ads. I’d have loved some of these snacks too!

      Oh I’m sorry for your teams lose. I wasn’t really rooting for either I was just there for the food and Lady Gaga as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The loaded baked potato dip sounds lovely, could eat right in front of the TV. Being from the UK, I don’t watch American football, but I did watch Lady Gaga’s performance. Loved it. Tiffany & Co signed her up, so I think it made them happy too.

      Yes I have yet to try that dip, it just sounds so delicious! And really I just watch the Super Bowl for the food and halftime performance, lol.
