Score Big with Our 10 Best Super Bowl Party Foods

by Albertina Roca   |   January 25, 2017   |  

Whether you're an ardent football fanatic or just watching for the commercials, you'll need some crowd-pleasing snacks, meats and appetizers to keep you and your guests cheering through double-overtime. Celebrate with salty bar snacks and Greek dips, entertain with rustic cheese plates and salami platters, or fill your bellies with gigantic bison burgers and porterhouse steaks, finished off with lusciously sweet brownies, cheesecakes and pies for dessert. Either way, there's plenty to choose from in time for kickoff!

1. Nuts and Bar Snacks

Nuts and Bar Snacks

Since the Super Bowl is typically around four hours long, you'll need - at the very least - some snacks and nuts to keep you going through the night. Our Crunchy Corn Quicos, Spanish Cocktail Nuts, Fried Marcona Almonds and Sugared Peanuts are easy to serve and make for excellent pick-me-ups between the beers and beverages.

2. Hard Cheese Board

Hard Cheese Board

If you're looking for something a little more substantial, an easy way to entertain your guests is with a sumptuous cheese board. Our Hard Cheese Board includes several European fromages such as Pecorino in Walnut Leaves, smooth Piave Stravecchio and buttery Gouda, complimented by prosciutto di Parma, fried almonds and linden honey. This perfect contrast of flavors and textures makes for an enticing presentation and fun conversation starter. Don't forget to add your choice of wine, beer or beverage!

3. Venison Chili

Venison Chili

Chili is a classic and beloved game day dish. It's simple, it can feed a crowd, and best of all, it tastes great, especially if you're following a good recipe. For a rustic touch, try our Ground Venison Chili. In 5 simple steps, lean ground venison (or whichever ground meat you prefer), Italian sausage and black beans are boiled and simmered in veggies and seasonings, with chilies and paprika adding the perfect spicy kick.

4. Salami Snack Collection

Salami Snack Collection

There's a whole host of snack-sized salamis you could choose for your Super Bowl menu, but to make it easier for you, we've put together this collection of our most valuable players: subtly spicy Gypsy Salami, lean Old Forest Salami smoked over maple and beech, mild and smooth Long Teli Hungarian-style Salami, and Russian-style Moskow Salami with its rich, well-seasoned profile. Slice and arrange on a plate for a simple yet satisfying meat platter you can dig into during those ridiculously long commercial breaks.

5. Authentic Greek Dips

Authentic Greek Dips

Serve up some warm pita or crudités and ditch the usual ranch or crab dip in favor of these refreshing and authentic Greek dips from Ifantis. Whether it's tangy tzatziki infused with fresh cucumber, a dense and creamy hummus, a citrusy cheese dip made with feta and lemon juice, or bright-pink, roe-infused Taramas, these are simple, ready-to-serve dips that can elevate your selection of finger foods.

6. Wagyu Beef Porterhouse Steaks

Wagyu Beef Porterhouse Steaks

Okay, enough with the coyness. Snacks, dips and appetizers are all very well and good, but what about some gigantic hunks of meat you and your drinking buddies can really sink your teeth into? Say hello to our Wagyu Beef Porterhouse Steaks: each of these massive 24-ounce steaks comprises two cuts - strip and tenderloin - separated by T-shaped centerbone. Essentially, a porterhouse is the same as a T-bone, but even bigger and juicier, making it truly the king of steaks. Best of all? Wagyu beef is some of the best-tasting beef around, thanks to the layers of intramuscular fat that infuse the meat with buttery, exquisite flavor. So serve these medium-rare with a nice brown crust, and expect a big belly to accompany the big game.

7. Bison-Beef Burgers

Bison-Beef Burgers

If you're more in the mood for burgers, try these ones with a unique twist: 45% lean beef trim has been blended with 55% buffalo (or more accurately: North American Bison) to create big, bold and mouthwatering patties. Grill or pan-fry and serve in buns with sprinkled blue cheese, tomato and barbecue sauce for a truly memorable burger eating experience.

8. Truffle Fries

Truffle Fries

Super Bowl parties are not renowned for their sophistication. This is, after all, a time for beer, burgers and bar snacks. But why not impress and entertain your guests by adding a little gourmet touch to your favorite comfort foods? In this recipe, Russet potatoes are julienned into french fries, fried in peanut oil and then seasoned with truffle oil and truffle salt to give them that classic and aromatic truffle flavor. Simple yet delicious, and something to pair with the aforementioned burgers!

9. Sweet Endings Brownies

Sweet Endings Brownies

When all is said and done, a sweet chocolatey dessert will round off the night even better than a sudden come-from-behind-win by your favorite team. And who doesn't like brownies for dessert? It so happens that since the 1980s, the talented bakers at Sweet Endings have been transforming brownie-making into a culinary art form. The result? A rich selection of 10-inch brownies that are ultra-thick, super-chocolatey and downright yummier than anything else out there. Baked slowly to perfection for a consistently dense and chewy texture, these enticing desserts come in several varieties, including salted caramel, triple chocolate chip and chocolate-pecan. Expect these to disappear long before the game is over!

10. Sweet Endings Pies and Cheesecakes

Sweet Endings Pies and Cheesecakes

Okay, so crazy as it seems, chocolate brownies aren't for everyone. But if you don't love brownies, you or your guests can always satisfy your post-meal sweet-tooth with a wholesome pie or cheesecake. Sweet Endings use real, natural ingredients to bake absolutely scrumptious desserts, like their Mile High Apple Crumb Pie with its juicy apple-and-raisin filling and buttery streusel topping, their bright and citrusy Florida Key Lime Pie, their classic New York Cheesecake made with Real Vermont Cream, or their blissfully smooth White Chocolate Key Lime Raspberry Cheesecake. Whether your team won or lost, these will help push your party over the goal line.
