Cheers to the underdogs this year! My wings didn't turn out right this year though. I think I did something wrong.

Default SuperBowl Party Food

Hi!! I'm planning to host my first ever Super Bowl Party. I'm doing the entree and having friends bring appetizers and desserts. I thinking something simple. Anyone have any favorite recipes they would suggest for such an event. We are having about 14 guests. Thanks!

I've always done superbowl and I make it easy on myself by doing bbq chicken in the crock and thin sliced roast beef.

Put chicken breast (boneless) in the crockpot season with salt, pepper, onion, garlic and pour a bottle of your favorite bbq sauce (I personally like Sweet Baby Ray's) and cook on high 4-5 hrs. Shred chicken in pot with forks and serve with buns or rolls.

Season the roast beef (eye roast) put in oven until medium well done. I do have a small electric slicer and I slice it real thin, or you can ask your butcher if they will slice it for you. Put in crockpot with the strained juice and add add'l au jus packets. Serve with buns or rolls.

Both of these can be made ahead and just re-heated the day of the party.
Whatever you decide to make, enjoy the party............who watches the game

I suggest a baked potato bar. Have a fabulous spread of all sorts of toppers including chili, cheese, sour cream, butter, chives, bacon bits, fritos, salsa, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, etc. Of course, the potato has to be huge and wonderfully baked.

Just for fun I thought I would post the link to a very popular thread last year. Super Bowl Party Menu Ideas

I'm having just an extremely small gathering this year, as I'm not hanging out with 40 people at the usual place. It's going to be different this year. Leaning towards Italian sausage slices and possibly some mixed nuts.

We're not football fans, so we generally don't either throw or attend Super Bowl parties, but a good friend and neighbor threw an Election Night party with a crockpot full of sloppy joe mix and a few dozen buns as the main course. It was very tasty, and worked well with the appetizer-type stuff that most of the rest of us brought.

Whatever you decide on, I'd recommend that you go for something you can do entirely in advance and just have sitting out in some form for people to munch on. You need to enjoy the party too, you know, and that means not stressing over a bunch of last-minute cooking or perpetual restocking of a buffet while everyone else has fun.

easy is the word of the day! you don't want to have to baby-sit some major entree. I would do pulled pork in a crockpot, or italian beef in the crockpot. If guests are bringing appetizers that would be wonderful. have some type of small desserts...brownies, or cupcake sized things that are easy to grab!

MWBW's sloppy joe is a good idea. Also I think brisket will be nice, because it has to be cooked in advance and you can serve it with side of BBQ sauce for those who like to make it into BBQ sandwiches.

This was always a winner when we held huge SB parties.

At least 4 chickens cut up. Dredge in seasoned flour, brown and transfer to a covered roaster (for some reason the speckled ones work best).

Cover and put in 250 oven for 5 hrs.

I'd also have spiral ham, platter of subs, salads but the chicken would disappear first.
