Super Bowl Sunday and All the Fixings

Sunday is the big game, Super Bowl LII (That’s 52 for you Latin numerical illiterates) and a big food day. Besides the main event, there is a UCon woman’s basketball game at 1 PM ET to start you off, they are still undefeated this season, followed by Puppy Bowl, and Kitty Bowl. With all that cheering for your favorites you’re going to need sustenance, so here are a few recipes that will be a hit with the crowds and make you a Super Bowl hero.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

These fried and sauced chicken breast strips have all the spicy flavor of Buffalo wings—without the hassle of bones.

Beer Bratwurst

This is a simple, classic sausage; serve it on a crunchy roll with mustard and sauerkraut.

French Bread Pepperoni Pizzas

This classic French bread pizza is as easy to make from scratch as it is to grab from the freezer. Top the toasted French bread with sliced pepperoni and mozzarella, and the whole pizza can get an even spicier kick from a sprinkling of red-pepper flakes.

Creamy Avocado Dip with Scallions

Think of this creamy dip as a textural cross between guacamole and French onion dip. A sprinkling of scallions on top adds extra sharpness and a colorful finishing touch.

Simple Spinach Dip

Because everybody—everybody!—loves buttery and cream cheese-filled spinach-artichoke dip, make a double batch of this creamy, luscious dip.

Baked Three-Cheese Onion Dip with Chive and Peperoncini

Sometimes, you’re torn between a creamy and cool scoop of French onion dip with the melty, runny goodness of a queso dip. With this baked hybrid dip, you can stop this dip dilemma now. Add chopped chives and peperoncini to bring some balance to the dip.

Nachos with All the Fixings

Making your nacho toppings from scratch really is a power play. This full-of-fixings nacho tray loads up on beer-braised carnitas, dried-chile salsa, and guacamole without overloading your kitchen to-do list.
