From first down to touchdown, you’ll be ready to tackle every snack craving you have through Super Bowl LII. This year, we’ve added a few brand new recipes to carry you through the fourth quarter, but don’t be surprised if these treats are gobbled up by the halftime show!
You may be snacking for a win, but we’ll be snacking for the wine! You’ll find wine finds throughout that go great with game day snacks.
Starting with the snap .. those Fried Pimento Cheese “Fritter” Balls above are from our friends at Field and Tides in Houston, who we featured on Goodtaste in January (watch here). Get the recipe right here.
Chocolate Covered Jerky
Beef jerky is transformed into a sweet treat with this recipe from 44 Steaks. The extra protein from the beef and toasted pecans will keep everyone powered through the final quarter! Get the recipe here.
You can’t go wrong pairing chocolate and beef with a versatile Pinot Noir. The Lyric Pinot Noir by Etude is a great choice for pairing with all sorts of game day snacks or all by itself. More details on this great wine from H-E-B here.
You can’t fumble this hummus. The “2-Alarm” refers to the double-whammy of spices: both serrano peppers and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are used to make this smooth and spicy hummus. It’s a cinch to put together and especially when you watch our friends at Zinc Bistro & Bar put it together in the video below. Get the full recipe here.
Hot Crab & Artichoke Dip
You can’t have a football game without a cheesy dip of some kind nearby. But we all get tired of plain ol’ spinach and artichoke dip from time to time. That’s where Central Market’s Hot Crab and Artichoke Dip comes in handy. This dip gets a seaside upgrade with the addition of fresh crab, but the prep is simple. Get the recipe here.
Whiskey Brown Sugar-Glazed Brie
Some of your guests may be drinking a little whiskey this weekend, so why not put the remainder of the bottle to good use? Our friends at Picnikins in San Antonio, who we featured on Goodtaste earlier this season, show you how to put this one together quickly in the video below. Get the full recipe here.
Oysters on the Half Shell or Grilled
No matter what happens at the game, people will be talking about your football snack spread for years to come, especially when it features oysters! Our friends at Star Fish Coastal Bar & Kitchen, who we featured earlier this year on Goodtaste, make stunning displays with their oysters and signature sauces. Our favorite recipe from their amazing Gulf seafood kitchen is their Wood-Grilled Oysters with Maître d’ Butter and Parmigiano Reggiano, which you can make right here.
Pair your oyster feast with the Casa Lunardi Pinot Grigio — a stunning $10 wine find from H-E-B. You’ll taste bright pears, bright citrus, and a tiny hint of honey on this wine.
Crispy Umami Chicken Wings
Stop the clock, there’s a flag on the play! You can’t forget the chicken wings! These Crispy Umami Chicken Wings from our friends at The Peached Tortilla in Austin are made with one of the most unique wing sauces we’ve ever tasted. The best part? This recipe is gluten-free.
Rum Chocolate Truffles
Instead of picking up a tray of store-bought cupcakes, why not give your sweets a little ‘competitive edge’? Line up these tempting truffles and you’ll be well on your way to winning over your guests! Get the recipe here from our friends at The Woodlands Resort.
We love the Twenty Rows Pinot Noir not only because it pairs with all kinds of foods, but it’s awesome price point at just $20 a bottle. More details here.
