Super Super Bowl Parties! 
Feb. 1, 2012 4:24 pm 

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.

Game Day—MVPs 
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.

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
