One of our favorite parts about the Super Bowl (Feb. 12, 2023) is how it can bring people together, united over one common goal—watching Rihanna in the halftime show. 😉 We jest, obviously we’re talking about the food! Whether you’re in it for the sports, the wild commercials, the Puppy Bowl, or the halftime show, everyone can unite over some winning apps for Super Bowl LVII. We have all the classics, like next-level wings, dips, and sliders, plus some show-stoppers like pull-apart breads and football-themed desserts.
There’s really something for everyone, from last-minute party throwers to hosts with the most. Short on time? Throw some chips or crackers in a bowl, serve next to an epic dip like our Nashville hot chicken dip or our football field dip, and call it a day. Looking for something a little easier? Homemade guacamole is always a hit, and nacho cheese is a classic for a reason. Looking to impress? Our sloppy Joe cups, our cheeseburger tot sliders, and our shrimp tostada bites are the perfect intersection between classy and game day. Want to really wow your crowd? Put our pull-apart spinach-artichoke football, our blooming quesadilla ring, or our football field dip in the middle of your app table and watch people lose their minds.
Sometimes all it takes for an incredible party spread is to change up the flavors of old standbys. We love Buffalo wing sauce as much as the next person, but were happily blown away by the flavor of our Taiwanese popcorn chicken, our honey-garlic cauliflower, and our ranch wings too. We almost couldn’t believe it, but grape jelly does truly elevate meatballs. And turns out, you can put anything in an egg roll—like Reuben sandwich-, meatball sub-, or cheesesteak-inspired fillings—for the perfect party appetizer.
No matter who you’re cheering for this Super Bowl, these apps will start the day off right—and keep everyone happy right up to the last play. For more game day inspiration, check out our favorite Super Bowl snacks, our top game day desserts, and our best-ever Super Bowl drinks too.
Blooming Quesadilla Ring
Sloppy Joe Cups
Store-bought crescent dough is stuffed with our sloppy Joe recipe before being covered in gooey cheese—what more could you want? They only take a little over half an hour to come together, meaning they're the perfect comfort food for sharing at your game day celebration.

Pull-Apart Garlic Bread Pizza Dip
Best Queso Dip
For the best queso we've ever had, we used a mix of shredded American cheese and pepper Jack. The American cheese keeps it melty and creates the perfect dip consistency, while the pepper Jack adds some sharpness with a bit of extra heat. Hot tip: Always shred your own cheese for best results!

Meatball Sub Bites
The meatball sub is a hearty comfort food classic that's been long overdue for a bite-sized upgrade. Enter the meatball sub bite—a juicy herb and garlic meatball stuffed with mozzarella cheese, wrapped in crisp and chewy pizza dough, and served with spicy marinara.

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip
Football Field Dip
Sheet-Pan Green Chile Chicken Nachos
What’s better than a tray of cheesy chicken nachos? Four cheese chicken nachos! Don’t worry, though, a couple cans of chopped green chiles cut the richness of all that cheese. (Not that we’re complaining.) We’ll leave the toppings up to you, but we suggest The Works, aka red onion, radishes, avocado, jalapeño, cilantro, and hot sauce.
Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip
Meatball Sub Egg Rolls
These fun little hybrids are exactly what they sound like—all of the fillings you'd find in a meatball sub loaded into an egg roll wrapper and deep-fried until golden brown, delicious, and perfect for folks who don't want their hands covered in hot marinara sauce.

Nashville Hot Chicken Dip
Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Pull-Apart Cheeseburger Sliders
Everyone loves little mini cheeseburgers, but have you ever made them? Flipping a dozen (or more) little patties is maddening. Enter: our brilliant little hack. Instead of forming each individual slider, we go pull-apart style, using a loose cooked ground beef mixture that's seasoned like a good, juicy burger.
