Super Bowl Snacks that Score

Caramelized Onion Dip

from TLP Test Kitchen

Forget store-bought dips and packets of powdered mix: Making homemade onion dip from scratch is a cinch. The key is perfectly caramelizing the onions, a skill any home cook can master with a little patience.

Chili Bun and Slaw Dogs

from Victuals, an Appalachian Journey by Ronni Lundy

Ronni Lundy breaks down the rules for the best buns hailing from West Virginia. Buns should be soft, not toasted. They can be dressed with bright yellow ballpark mustard and chopped white onion, but ketchup, pickles, and kraut are frowned on. Hot sauce—favored brands are Crystal, Tabasco, and Texas Pete—may be liberally applied by those who wish for more heat.

Meatball Sliders with Crispy Onions

from the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group, New Orleans, Louisiana

It’s only during a football season that sliders become the handheld of choice. This recipe brings plenty of textural contrast between the juicy slider, creamy hot mayo, and generous topping of crispy onions.

Southern Beer Cheese & Pretzels

from Cole Armies, COLES 735 MAIN in Lexington, Kentucky

The snack spread must include at least one warm, carby item. We like the dunkability of these pretzels. This recipe calls for shaping the pretzels as rods (easy and good for dipping into beer cheese), but feel free to twist them up (eye-catching and much more fun to eat).

Oak’s Tailgate Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

from chef Jeremiah Bacon of Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, South Carolina

Good wings are a must among any spread of Super Bowl snacks, but many recipes call for frying, which can be tricky to do at home. Avoid the hassle with this grilled wing recipe from chef Jeremiah Bacon.

Guacamole with Pepitas and Queso Fresco

from Diego Galicia and Rico Torres of Mixtli in San Antonio, Texas

The dunkin’ and dippin’, snackin’ and sippin’ continues with a proper chips-and-dip item. Guacamole, always a strong choice, gets better with the addition of pepitas and queso fresco.

DOC Margherita and Diavola Pizza

from Lampo Neapolitan Pizzeria of Charlottesville, Virginia

If all else fails (or you finish all of the snacks before halftime), pull that pizza dough from your freezer (if you’re feeling slightly motivated, this recipe tells you how to make it yourself), and throw together a quick pie. In just a few minutes, you can get a hot slice into everyone’s hand.
