12 Super Bowl Party Menu Items to Score with the Entire Family
Whether you’re hosting or attending a party this Sunday, serve a menu that will score big points with your team, including the kiddos!
Here is a huddle of 12 Super Menu Ideas, but first, a few tips from the party playbook.
There’s no “i” in team...nor in “meal prep.” Recruit your kids to help with preparing these menu ideas. Give ‘em a little coaching and they’ll become pros in the kitchen.
Try a Hostess Handoff. If you’re bringing a dish, consider using a fun serving platter or festive bowl that will double as your hostess gift. Makes it easy to leave leftovers, too!
A good defense is everything. After all, it’s cold & flu season and everyone’s defenses are down. Consider preparing individual servings in plastic cups or pre-poke poppable menu items with toothpicks or spears, like menu ideas #1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11 & 12 below, to prevent the dreaded double dipping or little sticky hands from self-serving.
It’s a bowl game...be sure every service bowl has a suitable serving utensil and consider washing or replacing them mid-party. A bowl with no scoop will make for illegal use of the hands. Note the aforementioned cold & flu season!
It’s important to warm-up! Be your own referee when it comes to maintaining proper temperatures for dishes. Not only does this ensure everything will taste its best, but will keep your food healthy enough to eat! Game Rule: Hot foods should not sit out for more than two hours. Anything sitting out for more than two hours should be discarded.
Now onto the menu game plan!
