Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Food Should You Serve?

It can be difficult to know how much food to make if you are hosting an event or a gathering. Make sure that each guest has at least one portion of each dish, and then make a little more for good measure.

It is better to send your guests home with leftovers than to let them go hungry! 

How Do You Plan A Super Bowl Menu? 

The key to planning a good menu is variety. Choose a few dips with at least one meat free option. Pick one flavor of chicken wing, one type of slider, one type of pizza-style dish etc.

Make sure there are some vegetarian dishes, and a few lighter choices that aren’t heavy on the cheese. You should also have a couple of dessert options. 

When Should You Serve The Food? 

When your guests arrive before the game, serve picky snacks and food that is easy to eat with your fingers along with some drinks. Make sure there is some hot food to enjoy during the halftime show, and desserts for when the game is over. 

What Drinks Should You Serve?

If you are hosting a super bowl party then you will need to have plenty of ice cold beer. You could also make some cocktails, and make sure that you have some for drinks on offer as well.

Not everyone drinks alcohol and some people might be driving. If there will be children at the party then cartons of juice are great as they are less likely to be spilled than cups of pop. 


Hosting a super bowl party is a lot of fun but you need to make sure that your guests are well fed. This list has lots of great options including appetizers, main courses, buffet food, desserts, dips, vegetarian and meaty choices.

Try to plan a menu that is varied and make sure that there is enough to go around. Remember it is better to cook too much food than not enough, as you can always keep the leftovers or send them home with your guests.
