Plan to serve 5-6 different kinds of appetizers, with 3-4 pieces of each kind per person. Think of your menu as a meal and offer a variety of dishes. Also, choose at least some dishes you can make ahead of time, or at least prep ahead of time, so you aren’t stressed on game day.
Check out the following quick and easy Super Bowl menu ideas and recipes:
Macho Nachos – There are some folks who like to watch football and some that are just in it for the food. A football game wouldn’t be the same without nachos!
Pigs in a Blanket – Nothing fancy here, but a quick and easy classic game day treat that your guests will love.
Buffalo Chicken Dip – Buffalo Sauce, three kinds of cheese and chicken, need I say more? Quick and easy and can be made the day before, and baked the day of your party.
Buffalo Wings – I think there may be a law mandating serving wings at a Super Bowl Party. If not, there should be. This is a healthier version that is baked, not fried. I guarantee that your wing aficionados will never be able to tell the difference.
Bacon-Wrapped Dates – Bacon-wrapped anything works…. Yummy dates, stuffed with cream cheese and almonds. Simply delicious!
Sausage Bread – OK, not traditionally a football snack, but to heck with tradition. Make your tradition this year, with this easy, quick and delicious appetizer!

Caprese Skewers – Yes, I had to give you at least one healthy snack choice. These make-ahead skewers are just the dish to balance out the buffalo everything else.
Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip – My all-time very favorite dip. Make ahead, this colorful, cool and creamy dip made with fresh cranberries will wow your family and friends.
Buffalo Shrimp – These spicy shrimp are out of this world delicious. Unfortunately, they are best served right after cooking but would be a perfect dish to make and serve during half-time.
Easy Marinated Bacon-Wrapped Scallops -Easy Marinated Bacon-Wrapped Scallops are a sweet and salty, flavorful, make-ahead appetizer which is perfect for a Super Bowl Party. They are also great anytime you want to whip up a batch of delicious snacks or appetizer.
