Build Your Own Hot Dog Board

Can you even have burgers without dogs? Not if you ask me! Whip up this board solo or alongside another—may I suggest the BYO Burger Board?

Game Day Meatball Board

Everyone loves a meatball! Especially when you pair them with veggies and other goodies. Best part? Use your favorite frozen brand for even easier prep!

Soft Pretzel Charcuterie Board

The only thing that could possibly make a cheese board better? Warm, salty soft pretzels, that’s what!

Game Day Wings Board

No game spread is complete without wings! No matter what your favorite rub and/or sauce is, throw this board together for a classic snack.

The Best Party Dips

In my humble opinion, dips are the most important part of a Super Bowl party. They’re perfect on their own, but you can also add them to one of the boards above! Want more dip inspo? Check out more of my dip recipes here!

Need I say more? If you’re still not convinced, this is a slow cooker recipe so your dip will stay warm and gooey the whole game (if it makes it past the first quarter!).

This dip pairs perfectly with my Wings Board, but it’s just as delicious with crostini and crackers!

Rotel Dip

When it comes to hosting, it truly does not get easier (or tastier!) than Velveeta and Rotel cheese dip. All you have to do is brown the beef, then throw everything into a slow cooker an hour and a half before the big game.
