Super Bowl Food Ideas Needed

This Sunday Hubby and I will be going to a Super Matt as punter - poster - small Bowl party that we attend every year. It's one of those wonderful pot-luck bring-a-dish parties where everyone eats WAY too much food, and I can't wait! The hostess is providing chili beans and soft drinks, but everyone else brings a side dish, snack, or sweet.

Last year I took black bean salsa and chips and Mexican dip, but this year I have absolutely no idea what to take to this party. For once I'd like to bring something that everyone crowds around and snarfles until there are no leftovers (is "snarfles" even a word?).

Anyway, I need your help! You girls are all so creative, I know you'll help me think of something extra special wonderful. And if others get some great ideas as a result, even better!

Here's what I'd like to find...something that:

1. Takes less than an hour to prepare.

2. Is easy to transport.

3. Doesn't need to be heated or kept cold while serving.

4. Doesn't involve seafood because...well, I think seafood is yukky. Sorry.

By the way, the graphic above is a posterized version of a photo that I took of my son during his glory days as a high school punter. Wow, has time flown!


Pam siggie 2


  1. Pam, I'll be posting today and I'll include a recipe that everyone will love:0

  2. How about deviled eggs...I know it's an oldie but it's a goodie

    I'll put on my thinking cap for something more exciting

  3. 2 things that are SUPER easy...Brownies are easy and seem to go fast in our home.
    My guys like the little smokies in Baby Rays BBQ sauce alot too.

    Have fun Pam!

  4. Hi Pam,I know you want something that takes less then an hour but if you have a crockpot you can take frozen meatballs, a small jar of grape jelly and a jar of chili sauce , mix it all together and let simmer for a few hours and then take it to the party in the crockpot. So although it will need a few hours to simmer it only takes a couple of minutes to put together!!! Take care!

  5. Pam, how about ham rollups with the green onions or dill pickles. Have you made that before? Everyone loves them when I make them. Also Rondell posted a great one today.

  6. this is funny - I was just working on a post with some recipes for this!

  7. Once you said you didn't like seafood - my mind went blank for a moment!
    How about homemade guacamole dip w/ chips?
    Cheese platter w/ gourmet crackers?

  8. I'm looking for the same thing, looks like I found the right blog to follow :)

  9. Hello Pam and yes snarfles is a word! LoL! I don't have a recipe for ya but have fun at the party!~Smiles~Tam!

  10. I have 2 suggestions for you. Everytime I make either of them they always get scarfed up and people ask me for the recipe!
    The first is Buffalo Chicken Dip-
    Buffalo Chicken Dip
    2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
    2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    1 cup Ranch dressing (generic is super cheap & works great even if it doesn't taste good alone!)3/4 cup hot sauce, such as Texas Pete.
    2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (you can use more if u want)

    In a large bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese, ranch, hot sauce, and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Mix throughly (best to use a mixer). Spread into greased a 9x13 pan. Spread the remainder of the cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm with tortilla chips or ritz crackers.

    The second recipe is so easy and good.

    1 LB. of bacon cut in half
    1 pkg. of little cocktail smokies
    brown sugar
    wrap a half a slice of bacon around each smokie
    sprinkle brown sugar over each one.
    bake at 375' for 40 min or until the bacon is crisp

    Hope that helps you out.

  11. Got my recipes posted Pam - take a look, a few of them might work for you!


  12. 7 layer dip with fritos
    chocolate cake in the shape of a football with vanilla icing where the stitching is on the football

  13. Pan - just wanted to tell ya I love the poster pic of your son playing football! How neat!

  14. Hmm..Pam,you should make the oyster crackers that tidymom has, only put crackers in 9X13 pan;mix all other ingredients and pour over crackers & stir...put in 200 degree oven for few minutes (until oily mixture is cooked in)Guaranteed to be a hit! Also,here is the easiest cookie recipe ever! One box of Betty Crocker Butter Pecan mix, 1 egg, 1 stick butter (softened/melted) and 1 & one half cups chopped pecans. (may also add a half c. m&ms. Mix. drop by spoon on cookie sheet.cook 8-10 min.til light brown. Firm cookies that aren't crumbly.U can use any flavor cake mix. Makes about 5 dozen.Blessings...Barbara @ Cabin In The Woods

  15. Wow that punter looks HOT!
