100+ Super Bowl Party Foods That Are Better Than A Touchdown (2024)

100+ Super Bowl Party Foods That Are Better Than A Touchdown (1)

Watching the Super Bowl (February 11, 2024) makes us extra ravenous. Maybe it’s watching the athletes hustle, all the angry yelling at the TV we’re doing, or the nail-biting anxiety we have over who’s going to win...whatever it is, if this sounds like you too, don't leave things up to chance this year. Instead, make this year a winner with plenty of Super Bowl-friendly food to keep you going the whole game (or at least until the halftime-show). These Super Bowl party apps, snacks, desserts, and more will make sure you and your guests don’t go hungry this year. From dips to sliders, wings to desserts, your tailgate (or home-gate) is bound to have you feeling like you scored a touchdown.

And did we mention how easy they are? We know not everyone’s got the patience to construct mini appetizers, and luckily, you don’t have to. When we’re short on time, we love the trick of making one large sandwich out of a Bundt pan, making a casserole out of classics like chili dogs or tater tots, or throwing together a big pot of chili that everyone can enjoy. There’s also nothing easier than nachos, but even something simple like chips with queso is a classic for a reason. Grab some disposable serving ware, and you’ll be party-ready in no time.

Hosts with the most, don’t fret! We’ve got tons of bite-size options for you too, from Buffalo wings to the ever-popular pigs in a blanket. Nothing screams Super Bowl like sliders, and ours think outside the box, from Philly cheesesteak to French dip to a pull-apart cheeseburger. Speaking of outside the box, we’re also pretty obsessed with unconventional egg rolls. Our new favorite is filled with meatball sub ingredients, and makes for the perfect handheld party food.

When you really want to impress, we recommend going with something football-shaped—truly, is there anything cuter? We’ve got a loaded football cheese ball, a pigskin in a blanket, a pepperoni football, and a kale-artichoke bread bowl here, but we’re also particularly fond of it in dessert form. Check out our football brownies, cupcakes, cookies, or football cake to see why.

Want even more game day options? Now you’ve got the food all set, don’t forget about Super Bowl drinks too!

Loaded Potato Skins

100+ Super Bowl Party Foods That Are Better Than A Touchdown (15)

We expect nothing less than fully loaded from our potato skins. What does "fully loaded" mean to us? If it's topped with cheddar, sour cream, bacon, and scallions (or chives), it's loaded. Examples include (but are CERTAINLY not limited to): loaded mashed potatoes, loaded pickle chips, and loaded zucchini skins.
