Super Bowl Recipes

Updated on January 12, 2010

Recipes for the Big Game

Here are some delicious recipes that will let you see the game, too - if you do all the major preparations in advance.

Everyone's ready for a good time, including you! Early in the day, make the dessert. Dips and spreads can be made ahead, as well. Prepare the wintertime salad bar, and all you'll have left is the main dish.

There are no desserts in this hub. Please see my other hubs for desserts.

      Great ideas and isn't it the truth? We do so much of the work and see so little! Very good point and planning ahead is always my goal though I tend enough for an army and only a regiment shows I'm told. Love your recipes on other hubs, too. Audrey
