Lip Smackin’ Super Bowl Snackin’!

No matter who you’re rooting for this Sunday in the Super Bowl (4:30 p.m. on CBS), you’re going to want a steady supply of game day food to get you in the mood and keep you there. If you’re throwing a tailgating party in your living room, we’ve got the drinks and the snacks to please any crowd. And even if it’s just you and your main squeeze, we’ve got easy options for finger foods, dips and drinks.

Super Bowl Bash

Before you start planning your menu, check the Real Simple Super Bowl checklist to make sure you have the essentials. Things like decorations (can you say inflatable football?), coolers, ice, beer, soda, plates, bowls, cutlery and SEATING – it’s all there to make sure you don’t fumble on game day.

According to Buzz Feed — the end-all, be-all of contemporary wisdom — there are 23 essential foods you must serve on game day. From nachos, chili and pigs in a blanket (remember those?), to buffalo wings, potato skins and deviled eggs, the Buzz has curated all the best-of-the-best recipes from the Food Network to Bon Appétit. It’s everything you need to host a successful Super Bowl bash – for at least 100 people!

Delish’s 62 2018 recipes can only be surpassed by their 2019 collection of 75 Super Bowl party foods! And as they say, “If your eats aren’t touchdown-worthy, your team might lose!” From French Dip Sliders and Beef Totchos (with Tater Tots!), to Pull-Apart Garlic Pizza Dip (pepperoni-pizza-inspired) and Slow-Cooker Chex Mix — what you don’t see in Buzz Feed’s 23, you’ll find here!

A Yummy Super Spin

Get your party started with a few spicy spins on some tried-and-true Super Bowl snackin’ recipes . From Avocado Deviled Eggs and Pulled Pork Nachos to mouth-watering Baked Cheesy Pretzel Poppers, A Spicy Perspective has all the right moves for a lip-smackin’ night of snackin’.

And you can always count on Chungah at Damn Delicious to come up with a healthy, tasty spin. Yes, those two concepts are not mutually exclusive! From her Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings, Baked Cream Cheese Wontons, Baked Onion Rings and Skinny Queso and Taco Dips, Chungah is PASSIONATE about game day foods and gives you both guilty pleasures and easy-on-the-diet-conscience recipes.

Delish also came up with 43 slider recipes for the big game like Chili Cheese Dog Sliders and Beer Cheese Sliders on pretzel buns – you’ll find more than enough ideas for football friendly sammies! The Food Network brought their A-game with its collection of 90 recipes – like the Triple Pork Slider (ground pork and sausage with bacon, lettuce, tomato and smoky mayonnaise), and of course 89 more, including our fave – Layered Buffalo Chicken Dip (with bleu cheese!).

And just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, from the people who bring you aluminum foil, the “ultimate game-day wearable”…The Reynolds Wrap™ Hunger Harness™. It has a main thermal pouch to keep hot things hot, a food tray that turns you into a human table, an insulated dip and drink holders and adjustable straps.

Crowd-Friendly Cocktails

The Super Bowl and beer go together like New Year’s and champagne, but if you’re not a fan, check out these crowd-friendly cocktails from Delish. They are made with everything from wine to vodka to tequila and in big batches, so every party-er can enjoy.

Or, you could go the Lazy Dog route and just show up at the sports bar and grill at 3100 Village Vista Drive in Erie. About 10 minutes or less south of Colliers Hill (best bet is Erie Pkwy to County Line Rd. to CR7 East), you’ll find plenty of like-minded sports buffs there ordering off a menu of cocktails, appetizers and entrees to rival the big city restaurants, for sure!
