Main Dish Ideas for Potluck Super Bowl Parties
If you're planning a Super Bowl party, why not ask your friends to bring the side dishes and desserts? That way, you can concentrate your efforts on creating a couple of delicious main dish recipes for everyone to enjoy.
Organize your Super Bowl party as if it was a covered dish dinner or "Supper Club" get-together. Select a main dish and corresponding theme, and ask those who are planning to attend the event to bring something that goes with what you are serving.
Simple Pot Main Dish Recipe Ideas
It only makes sense to select a main dish that you can prepare ahead of time. That way, you'll be free to enjoy the game and your company. You also want to select a dish that is easy to keep at an appropriate temperature for several hours at a time.
You may want to consider preparing one or two main dishes using your crock pot for your Super Bowl party. That way, guests can choose to snack off and on throughout the game or enjoy a hot meal whenever they feel like it. Casseroles can also bee good choices for party main dish recipes. You can have one casserole ready to go at the beginning of the party, and pop another one in the oven so that it's ready to eat around half time.
