The Super Bowl is soon upon us! If you’re planning your game night menu for a party or just for a night in with the family, start here for some way-above-average Super Bowl snacks and game-time munchies!
The glory that is this pork chop bun is the first thing that came to mind when we decided to do a Super Bowl roundup of snacks and munchies. That’s how good it is. It’s not as easy as ordering a platter of subs, but it’s so much better.
This is just a no-brainer. A handful of these and a cold drink are–dare we say it–all that you might need for a successful game night. There’s a dividing line in our family when it comes to preferences of the classic version or the Asian-inspired version. Decide for yourself!
If you’re having a bunch of people over, this is a serious crowd-pleaser. You can make them with the shrimp and pork or just double the veggies for a vegetarian version.
Tostones are tasty and addictive. Replace your lame-o tortilla chips and jarred salsa for a plate of these babies.
These potstickers will make a tasty appetizer or main dish amidst a sea of chips and cheetos. They’re much easier than your average dumpling to fold and are ready in a jiffy!
These are a rather unorthodox Super Bowl snack but are no less tasty. Corn and goat cheese–I know, sounds like an unusual combination–but really, they’re so good.
Having a slightly more upscale gathering a la high-end refrigerator commercials? Try this trio of pinchos. Garlic shrimp, pork belly and roasted peppers, and steak and chimichurri bites–was there ever such a wonderful combination of words?
We love the classic seven-layer nacho casserole, but these…THESE are amazing. Make them for during the game or the morning of. Either way you’ll devour them.
This duo of dippables will jive with carnivores and vegetarians alike. Honey sriracha mayo is the topping of choice for either oven-baked tofu sticks or homemade chicken tenders.
Turn your usual potato salad on its head by adding chicken and a healthy spoonful of curry powder. This potato salad is packed with flavor and a meal in itself. Just add a big bowl of salad to make it a little more wholesome!
This is a big favorite at family parties and barbecues. My dad will make a big batch and they go as fast as he can make them. This fried treat is delicious and WAY better than a sad platter of store-bought jalepeno poppers.
One of our more ingenious mashups–shake up your been-there-done-that buffalo wings for honey Sriracha chicken wings.
The rib-fest continues. We love ribs on Superbowl Sunday. This version involves a dry rub made with Jasmine tea. They’re AMAZING.
Our second contender for wings. These have an amazing, complex mix of flavors with some relatively simple ingredients. Thai red curry paste, cilantro, and lime juice. Yum.
There are vegans and vegetarians who enjoy the Superbowl too! Try this epic, crispy tofu taco bar. We were skeptical at first, but we went crazy for them. So good.
A more recent recipe in our repertoire, but we had to share it here. Kimchi cheese fries with bacon and cheddar are PERFECT for game night.
That’s our Superbowl roundup! Let us know in the comments if you decide to add any of these recipes to your Sunday night!
