Mini sloppy joe bread bowls, perfect for any football party!

Easy Football Appetizers

Remember that you may have guests with different needs. Kids are best with foods that aren’t quite as messy and smaller finger food sizes. If you know you have someone who requires gluten free super bowl appetizers then you’d need to think ahead. Using GF Panko does the trick for foods like our gluten free chicken wings and others…

….. like air fryer chicken wings baking powder work well too. Just make sure to check the package to ensure it is certified gluten free.

Here are a few questions you might have:

What do you serve at a football party?

Pressure cooker frozen meatballs only take a few minutes to make! You can toss them with bbq or spaghetti sauce for a cheap appetizer. Simple meatballs can also be baked or try air fryer meatballs too.

Serve with some toothpicks, or with small rolls to eat as meatball sliders.

That depends on who you ask but our top 3 would be air fryer wings, our 3 ingredient beer bread recipe, and this football shaped cheese ball is a hoot!cheese ball recipe

Now let’s talk eggs. Yes you can make regular old fashioned stuffed deviled eggs to serve but amp those babies up y’all. Make our crack chicken deviled eggs this year for the ultimate YUM. Twice baked potatoes or air fryer hasselback potatoes are the bomb!

Game Day Food Ideas

Chicken Pot Pie Bites – I have not only made these for get togethers and to bring as an appetizer when we go to someone’s house, but I have also made them for dinner using leftover rotisserie chicken!

  • They are super easy to make, easy to eat since they require NO utensils, and you can add a cute football shaped piece to the top for a football party food like you see here!
  • Here are the best appetizers with bacon, you just can’t go wrong with bacon
  • Instant Pot meatballs are great too

Sweet n Salty Smokies – These are seriously to die for!!! Just a few ingredients but turn out so delicious and are addicting! I brought these as an appetizer for Thanksgiving, a plate of them to a New Year’s party, and an appetizer for a get together and they are always the first things to go.

What to bring to a Super Bowl party

Bourbon Glazed Kilbasa Bites – Great football appetizer that is sweet and tangy. Nice and hearty using kilbasa sausage which is perfect for a get together when you’re craving more than just chips and salsa.

  • Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pinwheels  – These are great for many occasions. They look pretty enough for a baby shower appetizer, but are perfect for an occasion like a football party too. Super easy to throw together and yummy.

We are all about sliders though on this fun day and our Instant Pot bbq beef is so easy to throw together. You can also try our Instant Pot frozen roast, shred, and pair with some coleslaw too.

  • Mini Pizza Bites – We make these all the time. OK, I am a little addicted to making things in my muffin pan! It makes it easy to pick up and quicker to bake.
    • Also it looks cuter too and makes for a perfect appetizer….who doesn’t love pizza in any shape right?

Yummy steak fajita cups are awesome to serve.
