Super Bowl Party Menu

Updated on October 30, 2014

Football Party Food

A good super bowl party usually lasts well beyond the time limits of the game itself. There are the pregame festivities, halftime show and of course the rehashing and celebration after the game. Each of these parts calls for some good snack and food choices.

As the host or hostess of the party you need to be prepared for many hours of feasting. You will want to make sure to have plenty of finger type foods handy for during the game time and a hearty menu to be served during halftime.

In this lens I will provide a menu that has worked for our super bowl parties and some recipes from other lenses ..


I'm very honored to have this lens selected as Lens of the Day for February 4, 2010

Menu for Super Bowl XLIV

Wheat Chex Mix

Rye Bread Pizzas

Crab Triangles

Sloppy Joes with Cheese Slices

Assorted Chips

Vegetables and Dill Dip

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Cream Cheese Brownies

Snack Foods for the Super Bowl

Rye Bread Pizzas

hearty appetizers

These little rye bread pizzas are easy to eat and serve. They can be made ahead of time and frozen. Then when it is game time they just need to be popped in the oven and soon they are ready to eat. You may vary the ingredients to suit your taste, but here is what I used in my last batch.

1 lb. pork sausage

1/2 lb ground beef

1 lb Velvetta

1 teaspoon. Italian Seasoning

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons ketchup

2 loaves cocktail rye bread

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1. Brown your meats and drain well. Set these aside.

2. Melt the Velvetta. I do this in the microwave, it took about 5 minutes and I stirred every minute or so.

3. Combine the Velvetta and seasonings, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. When thoroughly blended add this to the meat.

4. Spread the mixture on the rye bread slices.

5. At this point I arranged these in a single layer on a cookie sheet and stuck them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. After they were frozen, I put them in freezer bags for future use.

6. When you are ready to serve the pizzas put them on single layer on cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10- 15 minutes.

You can also add other favorite pizza ingredients to this recipe. Some suggestions would be chopped peppers, chopped olives, or mushrooms.

Football Player Shaped Platter - great for serving those little pizzas

This football player shaped platter would be great for serving appetizers at the Super Bowl Party!

A Hearty Sandwich is Essential

Sloppy Joes make a Great Hearty Sandwich

make ahead in crockpot

My sloppy joe recipe is fairly easy to make and serve. I brown the ground beef with chopped onions in a skillet and then drain well. I then put the ground beef mixture and my favorite barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's) in a crockpot and stir. This mixture can be kept on low in the crockpot throughout the party and guests can help themselves to a sandwich.

I serve the sloppy joes with slices of cheese and large size hamburger buns.

Desserts for Half Time Eating

Football Decorations

Football decorations help to create a festive atmosphere.

      Your menu looks great! We're having meatball subs, mac & cheese, Doritos, soda and homemade brownies shaped like footballs. The kids don't like football...but they always love Super Bowl because we eat food like that! :) I only got 20% on your quiz... :( Enjoy the game!

      That was interesting. Got 40% on sheer guesswork as I know nothing about US football. Featured this on Football Season

      Tough quiz! I didn't do so well either and I thought I knew a little more about the subject than I do! Guess I'll stick to enjoying the homemade snacks and Super Bowl commercials. Nice lens.

      Deb Kingsbury 7 years ago from Flagstaff, Arizona

      I did miserably on the quiz, but that's to be expected. I've never actually watched a Super Bowl in my life ... just bits and pieces until and after the half-time show. But I always enjoy the social aspect of the game and the food too! Well done lens. *Blessed*

      All of it-- pizza, the appetizers, chili, brownies, it's all good! However this year I'm trying to stay away from that type of stuff and stick to my New Year's resolution. It's tempting though. Squid Angel blessed.

      Great quiz, you really know your football. it was fun to take. I watch the Superbowl, but I prefer college ball. Perhaps you have some opinions about the travesty that is

      the currect bcs way to decide the national champs. Come on over and debate with us!

      I'm not into football either, though the Super Bowl parties are fun - might watch the half time show - like last year Bruce Springstein was incredible. My mouth is watering like crazy after viewing this 5 star yummy food lens. Congrats on LOT D!!! Well-deserved.

      I didn't watch the game, but my sons came over. We had dinner together and then the game. At least the guys watched the game. I curled up with a good book.

They are delicious. 5* for you!
