Super Bowl Party Food – The Best Game Day Recipes!

When you think about watching the Super Bowl do you look forward to the game, the commercials, the half time show or the Super Bowl Party Food?

I have to admit, I love all sports, including football. Although I love to watch college football more than the NFL games, there is nothing like Super Bowl Sunday.

This special day is one of the best times to gather with family and friends to watch not only the championship game, but the much anticipated commercials as well.

Below I have listed out some of my favorite recipes that are always a huge hit at a gathering with family and friends. From appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, chicken wings, dips, spreads and even low-carb recipes, I have it all covered!

So pick out your favorite recipes and share them with your family and friends as you root on your favorite team, competitor, or as you pick out your favorite commercial!

Super Bowl Party Food Recipes


The main dish has to be the star of the day even if your favorite team wins or not. It has to be filling, while being easy to eat so that you can still watch the game without difficulty. Here are some of our favorite main dish recipes to serve at a watch party:

1. Sandwiches

Sandwiches are great to serve when feeding a crowd. They are easy to eat, require little clean up and can be enjoyed while watching the game.

Below I have listed some of my most popular sandwich recipes that are always a crowd favorite.

2. Sliders 

When it comes to Super Bowl Party Food, you might want to consider making sliders instead of full size sandwiches. That way everyone doesn’t fill up before eating the rest of the amazing food that you have prepared.

Sliders are basically mini sandwiches and are most often made using small slider buns.They are tasty and can be easily eaten in just a few bites while watching the game.

Although you can make any of the above listed sandwiches, there are a few more options when it comes to specific slider recipes.

3. Chicken Wing Recipes

When you think of Super Bowl Party Food, chicken wings have to come to mind. There are a classic and iconic dish when it comes to watching football.

Chicken wings can be messy but are versatile in every way. You can change up the flavor, the cooking method and even the texture. It doesn’t matter if they are fried, baked, smoked or cooked in an air fryer or Instant Pot, everyone loves a good and tasty chicken wing.

Add a little flavor with a variety of dry rubs and/or wing sauce and you can please everyone in the room. And for those less than adventurous than others, serve them plain with a little dipping sauce on the side.

Below I have listed several chicken wing options that you can make to enjoy while you are watching the big game.

All these wing recipes are easy to make and require little preparation. You can even skip the thawing of the wings if you are cooking them in a pressure cooker or air fryer. However, if you are not sure what flavor or heat level that your guest will like, serve them plain. Then serve them with a variety of dipping sauces including barbecue, buffalo, or Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce.

Dips and Spreads

Dips and speeds are some of the easiest foods that can be offered to your guests during game day. These simple, yet classic recipes will leave your guest licking their fingers and showering you with compliments.

From cheesy dips to savory spreads you can have it all. The best part is they are not hard to make and not time consuming. Therefore, they are my favorite Super Bowl Party Food items!
