On Sunday the Super Bowl rolls around again, and while my Steelers won’t be making an appearance, it’s still a great excuse to whip up some favorite foods and enjoy time with friends. Although I don’t have a hometown team to root for this year, I’m pulling for the Broncos to win. Who are you rooting for?

To get you ready for the big game, I have put together a list of what I think are the best game day menu items here on the site. There are dips, appetizers, decorated sugar cookies, some main dishes and sides, and of course crowd-pleasing sweets. Each day this week I will also feature a new recipe that would be perfect to add to your menu. Happy Super Bowl week!

    I can’t say I have ever served anything for the bowl, haha, not being a football person. But if I were to, I do adore your restaurant style salsa!

    Wow, this list must have taken you forever. Thanks for putting it all together.

  4. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness on January 27, 2014 at 6:25 am

    What a great list! Now, how to choose what to pick…I want ’em all!


  5. Michael R. on January 27, 2014 at 10:23 am

    My printer sighs every time you send 100+ recipes! Am rooting for Denver though my heart is in Green Bay. (anyone but the sea turtles…..)


  6. Theresa on January 27, 2014 at 10:24 am

    Seahawks for the win! And thanks for all these great recipes!


  7. Laura @ Laura's Culinary Adventures on January 27, 2014 at 10:52 am

    So many great game day recipes!


  8. BrendaE on January 27, 2014 at 11:42 am

    Thanks for rooting for our Broncos – we here in Denver are rooting with all our might. It’s kind of a tug of the heart for me also because I have always liked the Seahawks and still do – I just want my team to win this year. Go Broncos! Love the recipe listing. Thanks.


  9. Tasha on January 27, 2014 at 11:58 am

    Since I live in Denver, Go Broncos!!


  10. Cheryl on January 27, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    Go Broncos! (Even my husband says so, but his heart is always with his Green Bay Packers.)


  11. Michelle on January 27, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    Being a born & raised Pittsburgher, my heart belongs to the Steelers without question . . . but since the Super Bowl is not on the Pittsburgh horizon this year, I’ve gotta cheer for Peyton and the Broncos. And I love to make Pierogi Casserole for games & parties. Much easier than traditional pierogis, but just as delicious (and carb-loaded 🙂 )


    • Michelle on January 27th, 2014 at 1:01 pm

      I also meant to include haluski . . . those are the 2 dishes that never have leftovers


  12. kimberley alden on January 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    Thank you for all the great Super Bowl ideas. I am in Seattle so I am definitely a cheering for my Seahawks ! Great match up and definitely the two best teams.


  13. Becca @ Crumbs on January 27, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    Whilst we don’t have the Super Bowl in the UK I might have to whip up a few of these treats anyway 😉


  14. Elizabeth on January 27, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    Wow! What a fantastic list! I think I like everything! I’m going to try to narrow it down for Super Bowl Sunday! Thank you so much!


  15. Laura Dembowski on January 27, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    I’m also cheering for the Broncos! Great recipes to get the party started.


  16. Kat on January 27, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    Thanks for the great list. Broncos all the way!


  17. Sevimin Askanasi on January 28, 2014 at 4:16 am

    from each other, yummy, snack recipes, I love it


  18. Chad on January 28, 2014 at 5:37 pm

    Now, can anyone make every recipe on this list for one event? Great list and a whole years worth of cooking! Go Broncos!


  19. Gary on January 28, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    I’m planning on doing the Chili con Queso to smother these oven hot dogs.
    Always love your theme lists.


  20. Lisa on January 28, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you for this amazing list!


  21. Zana@GreenTravelReviews on January 30, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    Thank you for saving me on super bowl Sunday!. I love the variety. Much better than my go-to nachos and wings routine. Thanks!
