The Super Bowl and food go together like peanut butter and jelly. Whether you’re a fan of the Broncos, the Seahawks, or the commercials I put together a simple menu that you can make for family and friends to enjoy the big day. We serve meals on Game Day as a big buffet so everyone can graze all game long.
Honey Barbecue Chicken Wings— you can’t go wrong with wings for football!
Mini burgers (aka sliders)–you can make mini-buns out of Udi’s Gluten Free bread or serve them up on lettuce wraps!

One thing I’m a stickler about is food safety. For the Super Bowl that means putting out foods before the game starts and then changing what’s out right after half time. Since you shouldn’t leave food out for more than two hours that’s an easy guideline to remember. You don’t want your family or friends to take home a stomachache! With that in mind here are a few tips from foodsafety.gov that will help you have your cake and eat it too…literally!
