Most of us this Super Bowl Sunday will be relatively unconcerned with the outcome of the game. The Patriots aren’t in it, so we have nothing to cheer for right? Wrong. The Super Bowl is one of the best food holidays of the year, and for those of you unconcerned with who’s on the field, you can eat your way through each touchdown, quarter and even through Beyonce’s halftime performance. Skip the takeout this year and head into the kitchen to craft up Super Bowl recipes that will make you forget all about the Patriots not being in the big game.
In order to truly forget though, you need to think outside the box. While the nachos, wings and buffalo chicken dips are all fantastic staples, eating them year after year on game day can get a bit boring. That’s why we’ve talked with Boston’s most kitchen-savvy food bloggers to get their best, most delicious and creative Super Bowl snacks. From unique spins on buffalo chicken to spicy Cheez-Its to gourmet mac and cheese, these foodies have pulled out all the stops to help you keep your guests full and happy throughout the entire game.
