Super Bowl Munchie Ideas

This weekend something big is happening.  Everyone is talking about it.  Many people are extremely excited!  Lots of fun, shouting, cheering and dishes upon dishes of pub grub will be lovingly made for my family ... 

apparently there's a big football game on too.

Yup, it's Super Bowl weekend!  Woot woot!

The only real hitch I see is that our family isn't into football.  Brad and Boy 1 understand it better than the rest of us.  I kind of get the gist of the game but it's not something that I'd sit down and watch ... except for the Super Bowl.  Because during Super Bowl people lose their minds when it comes to eating and the fact that there are funny commercials on in between snippets of the game is the icing on the cake for our family.

I have a couple of friends, Beth and Kym and even my dear ol' Mom and Dad to be precise, who are avid football fans.  They know the game inside and out and regularly cheer on their favourite teams.  They are probably going to shake their heads when they are reminded of my lack of football love.  And yet they still love me.

Boo!  Hiss!  from the football lovers out there.  I know.  I get it.  You love your sport and that's great.  The Bookworm Family loves eating dips, chicken wings and cheesy bacon fries with abandon.  S'all good.  There's room for everyone's bliss.

To give you some inspiration for this weekend I've prepared a list of Super Bowl Worthy snack ideas.  You can check out my mega list of appetizer ideas on my blog under the Recipe Index heading at the top of the page.

Good luck to the two teams (whoever you may be).  We'll be (sort of) watching, cheering at inappropriate times and stuffing our faces.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Consistently one of my top blog (and Pinterest) posts. Spicy and good!

Cheesy Bacon Fries with Ranch Dip
Fries, cheese, bacon ... the trinity of yum!

Hot Broccoli Dip
One of my all-time favourite dips.  Don't let the broccoli scare you away.  This dip is awesome!

Crispy Breaded Goat Cheese with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
For those wanting a more upper crust affair these goat cheese bites are fantastic and rather impressive.

Loaded Ranch Pull-Apart Bread
A definite crowd pleaser!

Jalapeno Popper Dip
Another one of my top Pinned appetizers because it tastes exactly like those delicious little poppers!

Layered Greek Dip
Looking for something easy to bring to a Super Bowl Party?  This dip is easy to whip up and a nice cold dip idea.

And finally, one cannot attend a Super Bowl Extravaganza party without the signature
Super Taco Dip.  Layered with a spicy cream cheese layer, diced veggies and black olives, salsa and cheese this is always a hit.

Good luck to the two teams.  I'll be cheering on the Toronto Blue Jays. ;)

All looks delicious even here where we do not have super bowl

Thanks Dzoli! I don't think you need to use the Super Bowl as an excuse to whip these up. ;). I'd use any old reason. Hope you enjoy them! I'm getting ready to heat up the Hot Broccoli Dip now :)

These look great! I am going to try the jalepeno dip and the goat cheese bites. I will let you know how they work out :) enjoy the game.....if you actually watch an of it ;)

Kym - you'll enjoy both of them. The jalapeño popper dip is easy to whip up (make sure you use Panko crumbs for the texture). I almost made it this weekend too but since my dad is coming over for the game and I know he loves my taco dip I'll be making one of those ... and some Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Fries. I've had a craving for those for while. With some chicken wings I think we'll be set! Enjoy the game! I'll try to watch a bit but I have the attention span of a gnat.
