What is on your Superbowl Menu?

I'm looking for some ideas for my Superbowl menu for Sunday, so what is everyone making/serving on this pivotal date on your culinary calendar?

Here is what I have so far:

I'm going to make these great greek meatballs which I've made before and are fantastic...http://lifeinrecipes.blogspot.com/200...

These Mango Buffalo Chicken Wings, which I've never made...http://ellesnewenglandkitchen.blogspo...
(still debating what kind of wings to make

)

As usual, I'm struggling with having some healthy options and vegetables so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    1. My buddies and I started out trying to focus on the 4 major food groups, meat, garlic, cheese, and chiles. We would challenge each other with the level of heat etc, but over time, it evolved into a showcase for creativity and excess. We go all out these days, and tons of leftovers are now expected after each SB bash. My tastes run heavily toward big flavor and ethnic, and since I rarely have the chance to cook for anyone but my wife and 2 girls, I like to really get into it.

      Here's what I'm planning:

      Smoky Tuna dip
      Clam Fritters w/ dipping sauces
      Jerk Beef/Mango Puff Pies
      Baked Duck Spring Rolls
      Garlic Shrimp & Gouda Quesadillas
      SE Asian Ceviche (lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime etc.)
      Chicken Tikka Masala Meatballs
      Shredded Sichuan Ma La Chicken
      Bruschettas with olive tampanade, prosciutto, and mozzarella
      Puerco Pibil w/tortillas etc. (saw a cool YouTube video from director Robert Rodriguez)
      Red Beans & Rice
      Bulgogi Beef tips

        Blimey. Sounds good! As to TC's post, spring rolls might be good?

        1. re: Dinsdale45

          I've made that Pibil, and it's pretty damn tasty. I like to serve it with some pickled red onions.

          1. re: Dinsdale45

            wow.

            you cant do a culinary hit and run...

            you have to post the recipes for the tikka masala meatball and bulgogi beef tips. you have qite the ethnic range going on there...i am sooo jealous.

            1. re: asiansensation007

              I'm going to just wing it with these dishes. It also gives me a chance to use up some of the many ethnic sauces I've accumulated (my basement looks like a world market). I have some Patak's Tikka Masala paste that I'll mix up with ground chicken, eggs, and breadcrumbs for the meatballs, then I have this great, spicy packaged TM mix (the brand is something like "Sara") that I'll combine with yogurt to make a gravy. I have a good Korean bulgogi cooking sauce that I'll doctor up with fresh garlic, ginger, hot pepper paste, and sesame oil/seeds. I'll marinate the tips overnight then slow cook them in a crockpot for a few hours. I'm debating whether or not I should finish them with a blast under the broiler. I have no idea how they'll turn out, but I like to experiment.

          2. Ours is still taking shape - depending on how many people end up at the house. So far I'm planning:
            Stir Fried Edamame with Garlic and Chile (recipe will be on my site this Friday)
            Chipolte Buffalo Chili
            Spicy Cheesy Potato Skins
            Pot Stickers with dipping sauce
            Pico de Gallo with Chips
            Guacamole
            Beer (of course!)

              I recently came across a '70's style dip - buffalo chicken wing flavored dip - that I am adding to our party. Cream cheese, sour cream, chunks of chicken, hot sauce, chunks of blue cheese and cheddar on top - broiled! Never tried it, but sounds like a guilty pleasure!

              1. re: bluedog67

                Thats a great dip, been eating that one for a few years now.

                1. re: bluedog67

                  I make a variation on this that is simply wonderful. Speaking of guilty pleasures - I make a double batch at a time and have it for a non-nutritious lunch with Triscuits. Oh my it's good!

                1. I make wings with orange marmalade and fresh pineapple. Same affect good wings. Use a fruited spicy blue cheese. I make lettuce wraps with a spicy herbed shrimp salad. Make my turkey chili stuffed in mini rolls. I also love skewers. Beef, chicken etc with 2 or three sauces. Easy and quick. Roasted red pepper dip with lots of begetables, pita, etc. and I love olive tapenade and goat cheese baguettes. In fact I make baguettes and have a bar of possible toppings that don't need baking. It is alot of fun. So is the lettuce wraps with 2-3 fillings from BBQ pork, spicy shrimp or even crab or all veggie. It is a lot of fun. A fondu is fun too, cheese is great with a wine or beer. Lots of bread or vegetables. Even meatballs and pieces of beef or chicken. Lots of fun.

                    "fresg oubeaooke" I think I translated this on my keyboard as "fresh pineapple" by moving my right hand over one key ;)
