Game day recipes are pretty easy to come by but when deciding what you should make on Super Bowl Sunday -- well the task can be a bit overwhelming! Most people first make the choice between having a plated meal or doing appetizers. Nine times out of ten, apps win. Why? Because they are easy and people can eat as much or as little as they want throughout the evening.
If you decide you want to do a plated meal, your task becomes somewhat easier. You just need to decide what you want to make (think meatloaf, baked macaroni and cheese, or lasagna) and choose a time to eat. If you want to sit down before the big game, you'll need a dip or a few good desserts to put out at half time.
However, game day recipes for appetizers are really the way to go. Getting creative with your Super Bowl party is fun and your guests will appreciate having a variety of new foods to munch on while they crowd around your television. Below are my top five recipes for this years big game.
1. Pinot Noir Meatballs (buy pre-made meatballs and use a Crockpot)
2. Taco Dip (served cold with chips)
4. Deviled Eggs
You should always remember to have a wide variety of food and keep your options open. One chicken, one red meat, one dip, and something unusual (either an egg-based recipe or a potato casserole of some sort) makes one well-rounded Super Bowl feast. Remember -- people like to "pick" so make sure you also put out mixed nuts, M&M's, or other bite-sized, snacks!
