The Ultimate Super Bowl Party Menu
The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and it’s a great excuse to throw a party and cook an extravagant spread of delicious food. That diet you’ve been on all of January? It’s time to reward yourself by indulging in some good old-fashioned game day eats. The ultimate menu is inspired by childhood classics—pizza, pigs in a blanket, and cupcakes—with a potent pitcher drink to kick things up a notch. It consists of something for everyone, from vegan banh mi sliders to carnitas nachos, so grab your phone and start texting: You’ve got a Super Bowl party to plan! Whether you make all of these dishes or just whip up one, you won’t be disappointed by this mouth-watering menu.
If you’ve never had pizza dip, you’ve got to give this incredibly scrumptious recipe a try. It takes all the components of pizza—tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and veggies—and combines them into a dip. When baked, everything oozes together, and the resulting cheesy, melty dip tastes just like pizza. Yum! Serve with garlic-rubbed crostini.
You can’t celebrate the Super Bowl without nachos! This staple sports-bar snack becomes an interactive appetizer when you let guests assemble their own nachos. If you don’t have time (or energy) to make the carnitas and fixings, order them from your favorite Mexican restaurant.
Brown rice and kidney beans are the base for these vegetarian burger patties. Shredded carrots, broccoli, freshly chopped ginger, and cilantro ensure that the patties are super flavorful. To make these bean and veggie sliders vegan, use Vegenaise instead of mayo in the chili aioli. Place the toppings in chalkboard ramekins and let guests assemble their own banh mi burgers.
