There’s one team that everyone roots for, whether your eyes are glued to the game or you’re more focused on those fantastic commercials, and that’s Team Food. Not sure where to start when it comes to planning the perfect Super Bowl Party? No stress, just get some coaching tips from our Super Bowl party playbook, and you’ll be serving up touchdown-worthy recipes in no time.
2. Beer! It’s key. And so is opening your beer. Don’t lose the bottle opener at the party by trying one of these ways of securing your bottle opener. Up your awesomeness by learning how to open the beer bottle with a pen.
3. Bring out the heaviest players (brats, burgers, and other such meaty mains) during Half Time. Even though your guests have been eating for a good portion of the game, they’re bound to still be hungry after a few beers. Trust us, more food is good for one and all.
4. Just because the Super Bowl is stereotyped as a barbecuing, testosterone-fueled, tailgating-type shindig this doesn’t mean that every recipe has to be so fat-filled that it’s sure to clog your arteries. Serve prepped veggies with a flavorful homemade dip, like this remoulade or blue cheese dressing. Your waistline will thank us.
5. Don’t forget dessert. Keep it to finger food, like brownie bars and cookies. Our personal favorites are these Sticky Peanut Cookie Bars (the best of both worlds!), but if cakes and cupcakes are more your cup-of-tea, we’ve got those too.
