Whether or not you’re a fan of the Eagles or Patriots, Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest sporting event of the year and everyone knows that food plays a big role in the enjoyment of the game. This year, it’s time to trade the typical game day fare in for some fresh offerings that go well beyond the basic veggie tray platter. Check out our five best Super Bowl apps that all bring something new to the menu to kick off your celebration!
Sandwiches are always a hit on game day, and you can skip the boring cold cuts this year by simply prepping mini Cuban sandwiches. Pile on shredded pork, smoked ham, and Swiss cheese on top of delicious petite bread and add pickle relish to pack these bite-size sandwiches full of flavor. As one of our mouthwatering favorites, your guests can focus on the game rather than trying to piece together their perfect sandwich.
Everyone loves a Philadelphia cheese steak hoagie, but traditional sandwiches tend to be too big for appetizers. That’s why we turned ours into miniature replicas of the real thing. With shaved sirloin steak, caramelized onions, and cheese, your guests will get all of the flavor without filling up too fast. You can serve these along with your other appetizers, or provide a classic dip for your guests to use to enhance the flavor.
If there were only two tasty, bite-size snacks that you could serve at a Super Bowl party, they would have to be shrimp and bacon. This appetizer combines the best of both worlds by wrapping shrimp in smoky Applewood bacon before it’s placed on a pick and cooked for serving. To top it off, horseradish flavoring is added to the shrimp to give this finger food a definite kick.
Give your guests a tasty alternative to messy wings and sauce with buffalo chicken tarts. Our tarts include shredded chicken thigh meat that is doused in our homemade buffalo sauce using our special recipe. The tortilla cups allow game watchers to enjoy a mess-free taste of chicken while getting a satisfying crunch with each bite. Bleu cheese and green onions sit atop each one of these tarts to create another level of flavor that is guaranteed to please a crowd.
Fried chicken and waffles are another crowd-pleasing favorite. Yet, this meal gets way too complicated to serve in a game-friendly atmosphere. We remedied this issue by taking bite-sized morsels of hand-breaded chicken and placing them on buttermilk waffle squares. Each waffle is accented with a touch of honey and a layer of chipotle sauce adds a welcome hint of smoky flavor.
Get ready to celebrate the hottest game of the season by putting together a Game Day menu that is sure to please even the biggest crowds. By serving traditional favorites in appetizer portions, you can be sure that your guests will be cheering with every bite!
