Super Bowl party: 10 gourmet-inspired recipes

From crowd-pleasing appetizers and finger foods, to heartier fare and dessert, these ideas will make every bite feel like the winning touchdown

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us and what better way to enjoy the game than with a gathering of friends and delicious, gourmet-worthy dishes. Whether you’re keeping score, in a pool, or more into the half-time show, these crowd-pleasing apps, finger foods, hearty dishes and tangy dessert will be a hit with all your guests.

Snacks
Keep your snack bowls full with spiced fruit and nut popcorn. This treat will have guests eating by the handful.

These three-ingredients-only nutty chevre grapes are crunchy, tangy and sweet. They’re sure to be a hit at your party.

What’s a party without chips and dips? Pair tortilla chips with our guacamole-inspired avocado salsa verde.


 

Mains
Forget ordering in pizza and make your own prosciutto and arugula pizzette or caramelized-onion tart with asparagus. We guarantee they’ll take less time than delivery.

Wings are a staple at football parties – why not try this healthier grilled buffalo chicken alternative? 

This spinach and artichoke baked pasta packs a punch with big flavours. Bake a double batch in a 9 x 13-in. pan for a potluck-friendly version.

A Super Bowl dinner for a large group is easy when you can do a make-ahead pulled pork with ginger-bourbon sauce in your slow-cooker. Pair it with fresh kaiser buns and our sweet and sour coleslaw.


 

Dessert
These citrus meringue tarts are like little bites of sunshine. They’re quick and easy to make, but if you’re running short on time, pick up some ready-made lemon curd. Otherwise, our best-ever lemon curd takes just 10 min (and can be made ahead).
