Winning Super Bowl Party Foods

Make delicious recipes using ingredients found in our gift baskets including gourmet cheese and summer sausage.


The Super Bowl is arguably one of the biggest sporting events of year. Even if your favorite football team didn’t make it into the big game this year, you can still plan for an evening of food and fun by throwing a Super Bowl party!

Food is one of the most important elements of the evening, coming in second to football, of course. Your menu should have a variety of items that are easy to prepare ahead of time and choices that your guests can munch with ease while they watch the big game. The beer and cheese spread we shared earlier in the football season is a great appetizer that can be made with any of our gourmet cheese selections.

Setting up a baked potato bar is another idea that is sure to please all of your guests. In addition to butter, sour cream, chives, and cheese toppings, chop up some gourmet meat, like our beef summer sausage, as a zesty alternative to bacon bits.

Chili is another staple among Super Bowl party foods and is always great when served with (or on top of) baked potatoes. Toss in some of our gourmet sausages for a new kick to a favorite recipe, or try a new one, such as this sausage chili recipe from Chef Emeril Lagasse. Make your party even more fun by having a chili cook-off with your guests!

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a simple spread of gourmet meats, cheeses, crackers, and condiments. Several of our meat and cheese baskets include all of these items, which make for an instant party.

Don’t forget football-themed desserts! Football-shaped brownies, whoopie pies, and cupcakes and chocolate-covered strawberries decorated to look like footballs are sure to be winners at your Super Bowl party.
