Super Bowl Sunday (a.k.a. Game Day or The Big Game) is known as much for food as for football. Even if you don’t care about the teams playing this year, you can invite a few friends over to watch the entertaining commercials and nosh on appetizing party foods. One key to throwing the perfect Super Bowl party is putting together a menu that features a variety of tasty Game Day appetizers without spending days in the kitchen. These 19 easy Super Bowl appetizers come together quickly with just a few ingredients.
When planning my game day menu, I start with a substantial entree, like chili, pizza or sliders. I’ll add a salad, a cheesy dip, 2-3 different appetizer bites, and a couple of desserts. That’s why I love easy Super Bowl appetizers. If I’m going to make that many dishes, some of them have to be easy!
