Greatest Super Bowl Dish

I have made great versions of chili and corn bread over the past 5 years or so on game day. Now I'm looking for something new and different as an addition to my traditional chili/corn bread. What's the most popular item (besides taco dip, buffalo chicken dip, and stuffed mushrooms) that has served people as a good standby for football fans and foodies?

  1. BBQ ribs, tacos, burgers, and pizza are all good-old standby for Super Bowl.

    For something more interesting, I will do a "make-your-own-fajitas" bar. Have bowls of green/red/yellow bell pepper strips, sauteed / raw onions, any vegetables, black beens / refined beans, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, etc etc. (you know the drill) as the sides, then serve up different types of meat - flank steaks, pull porks, jerk chicken, and let them make their own fajita. So they will have some fun and you don't have to serve them during the game!

    Don't forget, your chili can be a toppings for the fajitas too!

    1. Muffaletta Sandwiches
      Taco bar

      Italian Appetizer Squares -
      Greased 9X13 pan
      Crescent roll dough laid flat in bottom
      Layer in sliced ham, salami, pepperoni, provolone, roasted red peppers, basil
      Repeat layers
      Top with crescent roll dough
      Beat 4 eggs, add a cup of shredded parmesan, pour over dough
      Bake at 350 til golden - usually about 30-40 minutes.
      Cut in squares and serve warm or cold

      Then change the ingredients to make something else entirely. Enjoy!

        That sounds delicious, I can't wait to try it!

      2. Any type of quesadilla, I like shrimp with avocado, cheese and jalepenos or serrano peppers with some seeds left in for the "kick".

          I agree. And they're super quick/easy to make in case you run out.

          You can also make oven-fried ravioli and/or pierogies. Use the fresh kind, dredge in egg and bread crumbs, bake until crispy. Serve with tomato sauce or some kind of creamy, garlicky dip.

          If you want to be healthier, go for edamame.

        2. I have made some great clam chowders for superbowl games. I have also made homemade egg and/or pizza rolls that are simple to make from scratch.

          1. I haven't tried it, but take a look at these reviews of The Big Bread Sandwich:


            Everyone who made it really liked it and someone even mentioned that it would be great for exactly such an occasion.
