Win the party

For many fans, the Super Bowl will be about more than football. For them, the food served at game-day get-togethers is just as important.

In fact, Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest day for food consumption in the United States after Thanksgiving. That’s a lot of munchin’.

Super Bowl XLVIII between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will be held Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The game will be the first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl and also is the first to be hosted by two states, New Jersey and New York.

While the fans in the stands will be trying to stay warm, those watching in the comfort of a warm home will also be partaking of game-day favorites, from chips and dips to nachos, wings, pizzas, casseroles, jambalaya, hamburgers and other grilled foods.

If you’re throwing a big bash on Super Bowl Sunday, don’t risk spending all of your time in the kitchen. Make some game-day dishes ahead of time or at least have all the dishes prepped ahead.
