Super Bowl Sunday – the ultimate snack food extravaganza

Well, Super Bowl Sunday is upon us.

This year its the New England Patriots
giphy-1

vs

the Seattle Seahawks
giphy-2

As millions of fans gather to watch the game, there will be some epic snacking taking place.

Fact: On Super Bowl weekend, Americans are expected to eat 1.25 billion chicken wings — that’s 100 million pounds — according to a new report by the National Chicken Council  (Sidebar: there’s a National Chicken Council?)

Anyways… while chicken wings tend to be the snack of choice, there are SO many other options out there!

When we host for a sporting event, i like to serve a variety of snacks.

My go-to’s when hosting a sporting crowd tend to include:

  • Slow cooker something.  Whether its homemade meatballs, maple pulled pork or a spicy chilli, the slow cooker is always on at the party.
  • Dip.  I make a mean taco dip and when served with the right tortilla chip, is a crowd pleaser.
  • Veggies.  For a lighter side of snacking, always have a vegetable tray with dip.  You can make your own, or buy the prepackaged tubs from the grocery store.
  • Cheese plate.  A variety of hard and soft cheese and some crackers.  It’s so gouda.
  • Something sweet.  Cookies, brownies or something else that will tickle a sweet tooth.

What are your picks for a sports party with a variety of discerning palates?

Also? Since I don’t actually follow football, i really don’t have a team to cheer for. So my pick for Superbowl Sunday is Beyoncé

Happy Super Bowl!
