Superbowl showdown: Celebrate with these fun party food ideas
By 1967, which went down in history as the year of the first Superbowl, 93% of U.S. households had a television (55 million in total). Today, despite the fact that the number of total American households had dramatically increased (approximately 128 million as of 2019), the percentage of them with television hasn’t risen much higher than that 93%.
Year after year, it’s one of the greatest events. It gathers the attention of the American masses and it’s pretty safe to say the American tradition will not be going away anytime soon. Now besides the game, what can we honestly say is the greatest part of the Superbowl party? Will it really be a party without nourishment?
Of course, we eat food to live but living isn’t only breathing and moving! Part of living is sharing these times with loved ones. And no one can argue against the statement that the Superbowl is the source of numerous cherished memories. Another fact is: you don’t have to be a football fan to enjoy the Superbowl. You could say you’re just there for the food and believe us, you’re not the only one.
We’ve gathered some of the greatest Superbowl party foods this year so join us!
“Pizazz” is always fun to utilize in the art and science of cooking but it’s perfectly fine too to stick with the classics – with the things you know everyone will like. Chances are, everyone will appreciate classic deviled eggs amid the Superbowl party.
There are numerous recipes you could follow with smooth ease, living all over the internet. Perhaps you weren’t aware there’s a certain way you’ll want to boil them for the Superbowl party? For the simplest peeling, use eggs that aren’t super fresh. Shield the eggs with one inch of water, bring them to a boil, turn off the heat, and cover. Set the timer to fourteen minutes. Move the eggs to an ice bath so they can fully cool down.
You’ll want to store the deviled eggs inside an airtight container in the refrigerator for no more than four days
