Ultimate Super Bowl Sunday Menu!

Here from the pages of the Chef Benwa Cooks blog is the Ultimate Super Bowl Sunday Menu. This is your one-stop-shop for some of the best food for Sunday’s big game. Lets just hope it a good one.


The most important thing to remeber when planning your menu is to have food items that are easy to make or can be made ahead of time so you aren’t spending the whole game in the kitchen. That would be a bummer.

I’ll start with the food you can do the day before and work up to the food you need to make just before the game. So here is, at least in my opinion, the ultimate menu  for this coming Sunday’s game:

Chili: – Actually better when made the day before and reheated in a crock pot game day. (This one has it own category)


BBQ Baby Back Ribs: Cook these the day before and finish on the grill game day


Jalapeno Poppers: You can make these well before the game and keep them frozen and fry them up just before the game.


Chicken Wings: Depending on how spicy you like them you can start marinading these the day before the game or, if you are not interested in blowing through you beer in record time, you can marinade these a couple of hours before you grill them. Here is the post for the marinade.


Kyle’s Flaming Hot Chicken Skewers: Same with these as above. You can grill these just before the game too. They use the same marinade as above.


Potato Skins: You will need to bake and scoop the potatoes, but then you can store the skins in the freezer or fridge till you need them. Fry them up and top them, then throw them in the oven. Make lots because they will go fast.


Chicken Quesadillas: If the Chicken Skewers aren’t moving or if you want to marinade and grill some chicken breast, or maybe some beef if your beginning to get chicken fatigue, you can make some Quesadillas. These are easy and can be thrown together during the game.


Bean Dip and Guacamole: Ok now for some stuff to make just before the game.


Final the easy stuff, all you need to do is open this stuff and put in a bowl. These are tortilla chips, pretzels, potato chips, and any other snack that you would like to put out.

Then there is the libations:
Beer is the all time standard. If you can serve some draft beer, it’s the best for this type of party. A pony keg has 82 12 oz glasses of goodness in it. So order your beer accordingly. For more info on kegs click here.
Liquor is good too. Margaritas or bourbon would be my favorites. But, that’s just me.

So this should get you going in the right direction for your Super Bowl Sunday festivities. Like always you can take, or leave, what you want and add your own touches too. Just be sure to be safe, don’t drink and drive and have some fun. Go Steelers!?!?!.

    i just baked another great recipe.

    (ingredients) 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 4 oz. cream cheese, 1 can cream of mushroom garlic soup, 2 small boxes of frozen spinach, 1 small jar of artichokes.

    preheat on 475 degrees. mix cheese, cream cheese, and soup in a bowl then microwave for about 1 minute. boil spinach. cut up artichokes into small pieces.
    add spinach and artichokes to cheese mixture. pour into small pan and bake at 475 degrees for 45 minutes.

    optional: put extra cheese on top before baking, add jalepenos, add pieces of ham.

    Be sure to wring out the frozen spinach. I’ve found that it can add a lot of moisture and a lot of salt to your dish. Sounds like Spinach/Artichoke Dip. This would be a great addition to any party. Thanks for the recipe Steve.

    You worked three chicken dishes into the menu. I’d say this definitely qualifies as an “Ultimate” Super Bowl Sunday menu.
