I believe I know where most of America will be this Sunday - watching the 49ers and Ravens battle it out in Super Bowl XLVII. We're big Chargers fans in our house (of course) but since the Chargers had another disappointing season, we'll be keeping it local and rooting for the 9ers.
Now we all know, the Super Bowl is just as much about the commercials, half-time show and the food as it is about the game itself. So whether you're hosting a Super Bowl party or bringing a dish to a party you're attending, we have a few winning recipes you should try.
On the top of the list of Super Bowl must-haves is wings. People just expect wings at Super Bowl parties, especially Buffalo Wings. Try this twist on the traditional Buffalo Wing - Baked Sriracha Chicken Wings. These wings are still spicy but not overpowering. Plus, they're baked, not fried! Meaning you can watch the big game instead of standing over the stove frying wings. Score!!
Meatballs are always a great appetizer to serve at a party and we have two great recipes, one healthy and one not so healthy. These Parmesan Turkey Meatballs are a leaner option and easy to make.
However, if Bacon is your thing (and let's face it, who doesn't love bacon?), then try these Meat Lovers Smoky Bacon Meatballs. They're a little more labor intensive, but the smoky bacon flavor is worth it.
Looking for some amazing dip recipes, how about this super easy Roasted Jalapeno Hummus (doesn't require Tahini!) or this Baked Cauliflower Dip? After all, you do need to eat your veggies!
And for a little something sweet, we got you covered. You can never go wrong with cheesecake & cookies, but how about cheesecake and cookies together? These Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecakes have a chocolate chip cookie base, making them a two-in-one dessert. Plus they're mini so your guests can just grab and go. They're a great make ahead option and can be made a day or two before your party.
So whether your team wins or loses, you will definitely be a winner with any of these delicious recipes.
