5 ideas for your Super Bowl menu

The Super Bowl is less than a week away. Here are some suggestions from the Recordnet archives to jumpstart your game day menu:

1. How to throw a Super Bowl party that feeds 10 people for about $50. We know it costs more than $50 to make all of these recipes today but we think they’re still pretty inexpensive. (Note: The twice-baked potatoes and the bacon-stuffed cherry tomatoes are awesome!)

2. Fire up Super Bowl Sunday with Buffalo wings. In 2009, former Record staffer and New York state native Ian Hill showed us how easy it is to make authentic Buffalo wings at home.

3. Spicy chili pairs perfectly with red wine for Super Bowl delight. Last year, Chef Michael Midgley shared his recipe for Texas Spicy Chili which he suggested pairing with the 2011 Sorelle Russo Red. Whether you serve it with wine or not, chili is a perfect meal for the Super Bowl.

 

OK, so these last two aren’t specifically Super Bowl recipes but we still think they’d fit in with your spread.

4. Fruit bouquets offer a fresh twist on the traditional gift basket. Silence that voice in the back of your head complaining about all the calories you’re about to consume with a decorative and delicious selection of fresh fruit.

5. Fair contest encourages cooks to get creative with America’s first fast food. Deep in the Recordnet archives is a story about the Best SPAM Recipe contest at the 1999 San Joaquin County Fair. What could be more unique for your Super Bowl party than a dish made with America’s favorite canned meat? Check out the recipes here.

 

BONUS

Tasty topiaries: Think all trees are just for decorating and admiring? Think again and have a bite. Take a styrofoam cone, add some brownie bites, creme puffs or miniature doughnut holes then add a foam football, or a few maple bars pinned together with toothpicks to resemble a football, on top and you have a replica Lombardi trophy.
