Superbowl Party Ideas

The biggest game of the year is on this weekend (Go Pats!) and I will be making some of my favorite football foods. 

My husband and I met during our college years and have a lot of time under our belts tailgating at Penn State games. We continued the tradition with our boys. Our 6 month old at the time had his own season ticket, my husband made tailgate blueprints and we had a squad of about 10+ families that joined us every weekend. So I have a couple tried and true favorites to share with you. They may not be the healthiest but it's the Super Bowl and we can't all follow Tom Brady's diet. 
Cheesy Football Dip

(I've also used real bacon pieces on the outside instead of the nuts)

Deviled eggs

because who doesn't love deviled eggs

These are always a hit at a party and to be honest they're good no matter where you get them but I like the Trader Joe's ones. These homemade ones are also good.

My hubs wings 

My husband is a good cook and can make some pretty amazing wings. He's done a lot of trial and error to perfect his wings but here's his favorite recipe. Be warned. This is his description. He doesn't follow recipes or time things so you just have to wing that one?

Bake at 400 degrees I think 
Right on the sheet pan and leave alone 
They will get crispy and I don't time anything so when they're done
Toss with your favorite sauce. 

Buffalo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter (3 sticks Butter, softened)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
Ranch sauce

2 tsp melted butter 
1 tsp dry ranch dressing mix 
1 tsp minced garlic 

One of the easiest main dishes to have at a party. Keep it warm in the crockpot and you're good to go. You could even add it to a build your own nachos station if you want to get all fancy. I have a couple favorite recipes but this is always the one I go to first.

Rolo Pretzel Bites

These are DANGEROUS!!

This is so easy to make ahead of time. Hardest part is not eating it all before the game. How cute is this football version

Another thing that's super easy to make and a big hit

an easy and cute treat for the kiddos

and if you want to be the coolest host EVER...

We also can't forget a couple decorating favorite part!
