Every Super Bowl party needs plenty of snacks for your guests to consume while watching the game. It will tide everyone over until the burgers are done or the pizza arrives. There are many choices of easy to make Super Bowl party food that are inexpensive and simple to serve. Start with some of these ideas.
Set up an area where the snacks will be served. It could be the kitchen table, a counter, or a card table that has been placed near the TV. Make sure the table has plenty of plates and napkins. Stick to snacks that are “finger food”. Those are easy to serve and easy to eat while watching the game.
Grab a big serving bowl and pour an entire bag of chips into it. Open a jar of dip (whichever kind your guests prefer) and place it on a small plate. Put a spoon onto that plate so guests can give themselves some dip to go with their chips.
You can put together a plate of cut vegetables that is much less expensive than the party trays sold at grocery stores. Put a container of ranch dip in the middle of a large plate. Arrange cut vegetables around it. Some great choices are: baby carrots, small pieces of celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cherry or grape tomatoes, and olives. Put a spoon on the plate so guests can serve themselves some veggie dip.
Sausages are a popular Super Bowl party snack. Cut up several kielbasa (or your favorite type of sausage) and quickly cook the pieces in a skillet. Serve them on one plate, with toothpicks nearby.
Another option is bacon wrapped cocktail sausages. Wrap each mini-sausage in some bacon. Use a toothpick to hold it together. Put them all on a baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 40 to 45 minutes or until the bacon has cooked and is starting to brown.
Want to add some carbs? One very easy, and tasty, option is to make some popcorn. Melt some butter (or garlic butter if you prefer) to pour over it before serving. Put it in a large bowl that can be passed around. Another easy option is french fries. Who doesn’t love hot, crisp french fries? Put a bottle of ketchup on the snack table.
Bring Food In
Will you be ordering pizzas? Make sure to add some garlic bread (or bread sticks) and wings to your order. These little extras are easy to eat and filling. The food may get to your party quicker if you have someone go pick it up rather than wait for it to be delivered.
