Super Easy Super Bowl Spread
Written by Maggie Ward

Big Game Eats

Get ready to cheer on your team with all the necessary finger foods and fuel for the big game. We’ve got the dips, the dogs, the sliders, and slices to soak up game day brews and keep team spirit alive to the final victorious touchdown. Whether you’re a diehard football fan or just a fan of a good time, these game-raising recipes are sure to make you the star of any Super Bowl snack lineup.

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


Southern Beer Cheese & Pretzels

from Cole Armies, COLES 735 MAIN in Lexington, Kentucky


Oak’s Tailgate Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

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

Good wings are a must for any Super Bowl party, 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


DOC Margherita and Diavola Pizza

from Lampo Neapolitan Pizzeria of Charlottesville, Virginia
