50 Game Day Recipes

My team may not be in the Super Bowl this year, but that doesn’t mean that I am any less excited for the big game. In all honesty, the food always came before the game in our house anyway. At least, that’s how I always saw it. Ryan may argue differently :)

For those of you that are food focused like me,  in honor of it being Super Bowl 50, I’ve put together a list of 50 Game Day recipes that I have shared over the years. Each and every one of the recipes on this list would be perfect for your Super Bowl shenanigans.

First up is the appetizers. All the finger foods. The chips. The dips. The snacky snack stuff.  This might be my favorite part and many of our super bowl parties have just consisted of several of these.



  1. Jalapeño Mozzarella Sticks 
  2. Hot Kale and Artichoke Dip 
  3. Beer Battered Eggplant Fries 
  4. Jalapeño Poppers 
  5. Sriracha Pulled Pork Wontons
  6. Hot Chorizo Dip 
  7. Yukon Gold Potato Skins 
  8. Pizza Bites 
  9. Hot Cheesy Scallion Dip 
  10. Harissa Potato Chips
  11. Coconut Onion Rings 
  12. Bacon Cheese Dip 
  13. Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix

  27. Jalapeño Cream Cheese Filled Wontons
  28. Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Jalapeños 
  29. Crab Wontons 
  30. Spicy Pepper Steak 

If snacking isn’t your thing that’s totally fine. You want something with a little more heft. I get it. And I’ve got you covered with some of my favorite recipes for burgers, brats and sandwiches:

You may have noticed that there weren’t actually any recipes for wings on this list of 50 Game Day Recipes but that is because I did a whole post on wings last week. Be sure to check it out here if chicken wings are your thing.

However you celebrate the super bowl, I hope it’s full of lots of good food, funny commercials and, of course, a little of the actual game ;)
