It is almost that time of the year where we get together and enjoy our two favorite things, food and football. That means now is a great time to start your shopping list. Starting early gives you a chance to make sure you have everything you need before the day of the Super Bowl. This also allows you to get great deals at the grocery store and avoid the crowds. Here are a few foods that you should definitely consider having on-hand at your Super Bowl Party.
When thinking of the food that you are going to offer your guests, you should first think about why they are there. They are there to watch a football game and socialize with friends. This means that what should be offered is grab-n-go and finger food—Something that isn't too messy but is also filling. Mini sandwiches, chips and dip, nacho's and other finger foods are easy to buy ingredients for and make at home. It is best to make sure to have enough variety so everyone is happy and has plenty of options to choose from. Here are some ideas!
Chicken Wings Ham and Cheese Sliders
Guacamole Slow-Cooker Queso
Spinach Artichoke Dip Mac and Cheese
Buffalo Chicken Dip Loaded Potato Skins
Loaded Nachos Fried Pickles
Sub Sandwiches Cupcakes
7-Layer Dip Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
When it comes to drinks, again you have to think about who is coming. If you know what they would prefer to drink, it would be ideal to buy what they like. If not, then just go with a general idea. Having spirits with general mixing options like soda or juice is one of the safest things to do to make sure everyone has an option. It is also a good idea to have some beer for guests too if they would prefer that over spirits. Additionally, you may choose to have a ready-made punch or signature drink for guests to choose from. Here are some possibilities!
Boozy Apple Cider
Ginger Beer Float
Spiked Hot Chocolate
Mexican-Influenced Bloody Mary
