If you’re planning a Super Bowl™ party this weekend, or if you’ve been drafted to bring something to one, you’ll be looking for all the football food
classics in one place. Guess what? Allrecipes has just the spot! We call it
Game Day, and it’s a special feature with great photography, some clever headlines, and what you actually care about, the best recipes for Super Bowl as rated by the Allrecipes community.
The main page of Game Day is dedicated to the best football food recipes. Seven-Layer Taco Dip and Buffalo Chicken Dip are highlighted. Why? Because one of those two has been the most viewed recipe
on Allrecipes every Super Bowl Sunday for the past five years.
The main feature area of the page has six slides, each dedicated to a football food favorite: cocktail meatballs, slow cooker sandwiches, guacamole, and finger foods.
These recipes are so good, you may find yourself
Tebowing by the stove.
Game Day—Big Bold Mains
Chili is the focus of our Mains page, with three top-rated recipes including the wildly popular Boilermaker Tailgate Chili. For a meaty, satisfying, and stress-reducing Super Bowl filler-upper, nothing
beats chili. Making chili ahead of time isn’t just an easy way to get cooking out of the way a day early, it will actually result in better tasting chili. Plus, with no football on Saturday, what the heck else are you going to do?
Game Day—Take-Along Apps
If you’re bringing food to a potluck party, consider wings. You can prepare them at home, then have a friend cook them, or cook them through and easily warm them up under a broiler. We’ve packed our
Game Day appetizers page with wings recipes, wings videos, wing sauces—even a video on how to eat wings.
Game Day—Halftime Treats
If anyone has room after eating all the dips, chili, and wings, halftime is a great time to pull out some sweets, like sugary party mixes, cookies, brownies, or a football-themed cake. Your guests
may not eat them right away--they’ll have their eyes glued to Madonna’s halftime performance, or, more likely, the Puppy Bowl—but they’ll start to pick at them as the second half progresses. I love, love, love the main photo on this page, a shot of cookies
decorated in the colors of every single NFL team. You’ve got to check it out.
We hope you’ll have a terrific Super Bowl party. You can’t control how good the game is (unless you happen to be Eli Manning, in which case, shouldn’t you be practicing?), but delicious food is as
easy as scoring on the Patriots defense. Kidding! Let’s all hope for a close game and great food.
