Hosting a game day is super-easy - there are only two rules:


  1. Make enough food.

  2. Have enough drinks.


When you are planning a winning spread for a bunch of passionate sports fans glued to the TV, you have to keep it simple. We have lined up the best of our famous wings, dips, finger foods, and appetizers to feed the hungry football fans.

There’s no need to get inventive or go through hundreds of recipes for a Super Bowl viewing party; these 20 savory recipe ideas are guaranteed to keep everyone happy no matter who’s team becomes the new champion.

1. Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

Taquitos are crispy rolled tacos stuffed with chicken and cheese. They are perfect for serving at a Super Bowl party for several reasons:


  • It’s easy to pick up a taquito without breaking eye contact with the TV;

  • Taquitos are less messy than regular tacos;

  • Served together with some guac, sour cream, or queso dip, taquitos are the perfect dippers.

2. A Football-Shaped Cheese Ball

Get creative and make this cheese football if you want to have a football-themed centerpiece on your table. It is super easy, doesn’t take more than 30 minutes, and is guaranteed to score you a culinary touchdown.

This is a fantastic game day appetizer stuffed with four different types of cheese, crispy bacon, and toasted nuts. Serve it with your favorite kind of cracker and watch it disappear.

3. Jalapeno Poppers

This is another game day classic and crowd favorite. This recipe is a bit of a twist on the traditional deep-fried jalapeno poppers - oven-roasted, filled with cheesy crab, and topped with crispy sesame onion topping.

4. Pigs in a Blanket With Jalapeno Queso

This year instead of slightly boring pigs in a blanket, make these pull-apart ones. They are more fun and look amazing around a bowl of spicy, cheesy queso dip. Bonus: both can be ready in only 40 minutes; you can’t beat that!

5. Game Day Chicken Nachos

If you are a fan of combining sweet and savory, this chicken nachos recipe with sweet corn and pineapple is for you. They are super easy to throw together with just a handful of ingredients and proved time and time again to satisfy hangry sports fans.

6. Buffalo Chicken Wings

Gameday can not be a success without chicken wings! Can you think of a more beloved Super Bowl snack than buffalo wings? Exactly! It’s an absolute must-have.

7. Spicy Chicken Wings

It is always a good idea to have several flavors for chicken wings. This recipe is for those who prefer their wings hot and like a bit of a kick to their taste buds.

8. Air Fryer Chicken Wings

That’s right, one more chicken wings recipe for your ultimate Super Bowl food spread.
There is nothing easier than making chicken wings in an air fryer!
Air frying chicken wings and fries are the best way to please a hungry crowd! Air frying means less oil and more flavor and texture - a total win-win! Plus, who doesn’t like a one-tray wonder? Perfect for a game day!

9. Chicken Parmesan Bites

Serving a football-watching crowd chicken parmesan is probably not the best idea; no one has time to operate a knife and a fork while paying attention to game action.
These bite-sized chicken parmesan wonton cups are the solution you’ve been looking for! The flavors of chicken Parmesan are all there, the breading, the sauce, the cheese, and the chicken. The seasonings are just right, and the crunchiness of the baked wonton cups just makes it seem like you are eating breadsticks with your meal.

10. Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks

You can air fry pretty much everything, and it turns out delicious. Making mozzarella sticks in an air fryer is easy and not messy compared to traditional deep frying methods. If you don’t care much about keeping it low-carb, use Panko breadcrumbs instead of almond flour and make these mozzarella sticks even crunchier. Serve them with traditional marinara sauce or any dip you love.

11. Meatball Stuffed Dinner Rolls

This recipe is a guaranteed crowd pleaser! Inspired by the meatball bubble biscuits you might have seen on Pinterest, they are made using dinner rolls instead and stuffed with cheese and meatballs. A fantastic no-fuss no-mess appetizer for your Super Bowl layout.

12. Pepperoni Pizza Dip

What is better than an excellent old Pepperoni pizza? A Pepperoni pizza dip! It is layer after layer of pizza goodness. It's the perfect game day appetizer full of all of the things that make pizza so great. It easily doubles to feed a crowd - and you should double it; this one will go fast! Feel free to use your favorite pizza toppings, different cheeses, or even a white pizza dip with alfredo sauce!

13. Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Make this Buffalo chicken dip instead if you don’t want to deal with the messy wings. It is a super easy and delicious five-ingredient recipe and takes less than 30 minutes to make! Perfect for a Super Bowl party.

14. Buffalo Chicken Dip Sliders

This original Buffalo chicken dip sliders recipe from Sidechef’s Lauren Holdcroft has a legendary status by now, and there is a reason for it. It is one of the most delicious things you can make for any party and a guaranteed MVP of a game day table.

15. Easy Pimento Cheese

Homemade pimento cheese has never been easier! Incredibly flavorful, simple to put together, and ready in 15 minutes. Serve it with some crackers or tortilla chips, and listen to your guests crunch away.

16. Cheesy Monkey Bread

This Mini Cheesy Monkey Bread recipe is essentially single-serving pull-apart cheesy garlic bread made in a muffin pan. Cut up store-bought biscuits, toss in some melted butter, garlic, and seasoning. Easy, fun, and perfect for crowds.

17. Beer Battered Onion Rings

Onion rings are a surefire crowd-pleaser. And this recipe is a guaranteed success. You can take it even further and use this beer batter for anything else - think zucchini, jalapenos, eggplant, etc.

18. Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Lean ground beef wrapped around extra sharp cheddar cheese, basted with sweet and tangy BBQ sauce and baked to great finger-food perfection. This is a fantastic appetizer for your game day party.

19. Mini Corndogs

Mini corndogs with Creamy Honey Mustard are everyone’s dream snack. It’s pretty hard not to like battered and fried meat on a stick. They’re easy to make, fun to serve, and crazy good to eat!

20. Easy Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas is a quick and easy appetizer for any party. Flautas are different from taquitos, made using a longer burrito-sized flour tortilla. It’s just more crunchy deliciousness!
