The Best Type of Food to Serve for Game Day Recipes
Super Bowl Sunday is one of the greatest eating days of the year right next to Thanksgiving, of course. Sure, we look forward to the competitive football, puppy bowl, and the roster of killer commercials, but our favorite part is partaking in all the food! However, over the years of hosting (and eating at) countless Super Bowl parties, we’ve discovered a few tips and tricks regarding what foods to serve to help ease the stress of preparing a feast while also satisfying all your guests.
For starters, you want to serve Super Bowl recipes people can quickly grab and snack on without a second glance (because their eyes will be glued to the tv). Plus, the easier items are to grab and enjoy, the less time you’ll find yourself cleaning up a big mess.
Secondly, you’ll want to ensure you have a lineup of super simple recipes that can preferably be prepped in advance. That way you can get out of the kitchen and back to your friends and family on the big day.
Thirdly, it’s crucial to ensure that all of the game day recipes that you serve are super delicious and have your guests coming back for more! Not only will this strategy make yours the go-to house for game day, but it also reduces the amount of leftovers and clean-up work. For that reason, we like to include a wide variety of foods and flavors to fit everyone’s needs!
