Superbowl munchies: The tastiest party snacks everyone will devour
One of the reasons the Superbowl is so iconic is that pro football is the only major professional team sport with a single-elimination playoff system. The other prominent sports declare their champions once a team wins four games in a best-of-seven series. The Superbowl is “do-or-die” which is what makes the game so special, according to fans.
According to reputable sources, after Thanksgiving, more food is consumed on Superbowl Sunday than any other day of the year. Amid most years, the Superbowl is the most-watched on television in America as well as the second most-watched program in the world. Every year, the sport gathers the attention of the American masses to play the most intense game of the year. Times like these call for thoughts of all the things we have in common. We eat!
There are the common Superbowl snacks such as chicken wings, pizza, and beer cocktails. But this time only comes once a year, plus we only live once so why not spice things up a bit? With the big event right around the corner, we only had Superbowl snacks on our minds. We’ve gathered the perfect snacks for Superbowl Sunday. And feel free to save this list for any event no matter how big or small, indoors or out!
Who doesn’t adore a savory sausage roll swaddled like a baby in a flaky and soft bread? It also goes by the name pigs in the blanket but feel free to make your own traditions because you could use any meat you like. This is also the type of party favor that goes quickly so you might want to make some extras.
Buy your own sausages or save your money so you could take the Superbowl snacks to the next level using your own ingredients.
Remember watching Saturday morning cartoons with a bowl full of cereal, without a care in the world? Any chance that cereal was captain crunch? Chances are you’ve wondered about a cereal containing only the colorful berries? Perhaps you’ve had spaghetti but would’ve much rather had the meatballs and only the meatballs? Need a quick and easy party favor amongst the Superbowl Sunday snacks?
Meatballs are a classic that you can use beef and/or pork for. You might want to add your favorite Italian seasonings and sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top like a cherry on top of an ice cream sundae, and you’ll surely witness how fast they go.
Like classical Disney, we just never grow tired of sweets. Sweets are a beautiful and savory addition to the Superbowl snacks. Of course, everyone can get filled up but if you want your crowd to really enjoy themselves, you may want to bring your dessert tray.
You probably won’t be aiming for a “sense of class and sophistication” for the Superbowl snacks but everyone loves chocolate! Chocolate truffles don’t yearn for a master baker to pull off. There’s easy-to-follow recipes all over the web!
Honey barbecue chicken bites
There’s no way to talk about Superbowl snacks without mentioning chicken at some point, it just doesn’t always have to be in wing form. Of course, you could have both but who needs chicken wings when you could have bites?
Wings can be very messy, often requiring a ton of napkins but these chicken bites can easily be devoured with merely a toothpick. Serve them with a side of any kind of dipping sauce and you’ll definitely want to keep a close eye to keep refilling.
Steak and cheese quesadilla
Perhaps, you have a bigger appetite? We often save space in our stomachs for Superbowl snacks but maybe you’ll want to do more than just munch on things. Add steak and cheese quesadillas to the menu! You could put them together in no time and stick them in the oven to thoroughly melt the cheese.
