Super Bowl Party Recipes

Using good Super Bowl party recipes makes a big difference in the outcome of your gathering. Choosing your menu items depends on the location of your party, because you cannot make everything at a tailgating party that you can make in your home. Still, plenty of recipes exist for cold foods, barbecue dishes and sandwiches.

Buffalo Wings

A popular food item at any Super Bowl party is Buffalo wings, which you can make sweet, mild, hot or extra spicy. To make these favorite Super Bowl party recipes, simply gather:

  • A quart of vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Two dozen or more chicken wings, depending on the number of guests
  • Four tablespoons of butter
  • A tablespoon of distilled white vinegar
  • Five tablespoons of your choice of sauce

Once you have all the ingredients, heat the oil to 375° in a deep fryer or big skillet. Fry the wings for about ten minutes or until done and drain them on paper towels. After you fry all the chicken, rinse and wipe the skillet before using it to melt the butter. Add the vinegar and sauce, along with some seasoning if you so desire, and stir. Throw in the cooked chicken, stir to coat and lower the heat. When the sauce gets hot, your food is ready to enjoy.

Bourbon BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Bourbon BBQ pork sandwiches add a twist to common Super Bowl party recipes by offering different flavors while filling your belly. To add these to your game day menu, start by getting:

  • Three tablespoons of olive oil
  • Three cloves of chopped garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • One 4-pound pork shoulder
  • Two cloves of chopped garlic
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • Two cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • A half a cup of bourbon
  • Sandwich bread or rolls

Turn your oven to 425° and use a small bowl to mix the first three ingredients. Spread the rub over the pork shoulder, place it on a meat rack in a roasting pan and cook for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325° and cook for four hours. Let the pork cool for 30 minutes before pulling it and making the bourbon sauce. You can also put this in a slow cooker and follow the slow cooker's directions for cooking times.

To make the sauce, place the two garlic cloves and two tablespoons of olive oil in a medium pot. Cook over medium heat, and when you can smell the garlic, add the BBQ sauce, bourbon and pork. Let simmer for ten minutes, put it in some Tupperware and pack it for the game. Remember to bring some coleslaw, extra sauce and the rolls.

Chocolate Beer Truffles

No party is complete without dessert, so why not try this delicious Super Bowl party recipe. To make chocolate beer truffles, you need:

  • Nine ounces of 65 percent cacao dark chocolate
  • Half a cup of heavy cream
  • Three tablespoons of beer, your choice
  • A third of a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

In a heat-proof bowl, combine the chocolate and heavy cream and hold over a pot of simmering water. Allow the ingredients to warm for three minutes without stirring and then whisk them together. Take the bowl away from the heat and give it 20 to 30 minutes to cool. Slowly stir in the beer, pour into a flat casserole dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for three hours. Take the chocolate from the refrigerator and use a melon-scooper to make balls of chocolate. Smooth out the balls with your hand, put them on parchment paper, sprinkle them with the cocoa powder and serve.

All of these Super Bowl party recipes not only taste good, but you can serve them at home or while tailgating. Just remember to cook ahead of time and pack extra items, such as condiments, dips and other quick snacks.
