75 Super Bowl Recipes for Super Bowl XLVI

Next Sunday the Super Bowl rolls around again, and unfortunately the Steelers won’t be making a repeat trip back. Although that makes watching the game a tad bittersweet, it’s still a great excuse to whip up some favorite foods and enjoy time with friends. Plus, it always helps to have rooting interest in the game. As a Steelers fan, I must do my best to make sure that Tom Brady and the Patriots don’t win another Super Bowl. So I’ll definitely be watching and cheering on the Giants this year, hoping they can repeat that magical upset of four years ago.

To get you ready for the big game, I have put together 75 of what I think are the best game day menu items 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 dip or comfort food as a potential to add to your menu. I love party food! Enjoy perusing the recipes and… GO GIANTS!
