Why merely watch the game, when you can eat your way through it?
47 Super Bowl Recipe Ideas For A Perfect Game Day

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here. Whether you're tuning in to watch the best two teams of the season face-off or just waiting for the halftime show, these snacks, bites and slices are exactly what you'll want to eat. From sweet and spicy wings to the best-ever nachos, these Super Bowl recipes won't last long, and they pair great with a cocktail (or a non-alcoholic beer) or two.

Samosa Puffs With Cranberry Chutney

These samosa puffs are one of Jennifer Pallian's favourite finger foods to bring to a party. What’s not to love about savoury spiced-chicken samosa filling tucked into buttery, flaky puff pastry—à la sausage roll? Serve with festive cranberry chutney for dipping, or swap in store-bought mango or tamarind chutney. Get our samosa puffs with cranberry chutney recipe here.

Cheesy Jalapeno Mussel Poppers

These mussels are topped with a cheesy mix of jalapenos and green onions and broiled in the oven until golden and bubbling. These are a great appetizer to assemble in advance and then simply broil before serving. The mussels do double duty by providing their own serving vessels, which need no clean-up. Get our cheesy jalapeno mussel poppers recipe here.
