Super Bowl is finally here!  Here is a collection of some super-hit game-day recipes, that’ll keep you entertained and fed, while the two teams fight it out. 

Here you will find a variety of vegetarian, chicken/meat and gluten-free recipes for appetizers, entree and dessert. These recipes can be made in an Instant Pot, oven or stove-top, and can be made or prepped ahead of time. With that, I wish ‘Good Eatings’ to you all, and may the best team win!

Super Bowl Sunday

According to Wikipedia, Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest food consumption day in America, after Thanksgiving.  It is said that roughly 28,000,000 pounds of chips, 1.25 billion chicken wings, and 8,000,000 pounds of guacamole are consumed during the Super Bowl.   Now, that’s a LOT of good food!  

Every year on Super Bowl, we get together with some of my hubby’s college buddies and their families.  We’ve been watching the game together for over a decade now.  Along with the fun, we all look forward to a variety of delicious food. 

I’m sharing some of our favorite recipes, that are regulars, in our game day celebrations.  All these recipes are quick, easy and finger-licking!
