Super Bowl 2012 Recipes from Spinach Tiger

by Angela Roberts on February 3, 2012

No doubt you are either hosting a super bowl party or attending one on Sunday and need an idea for something to bring  besides cheese and crackers.

Even if you don’t follow football, you are looking forward to the food. Super Bowl means super size, super gooey, super starchy, super appetite time. Here are some of the dishes I believe are super bowl worthy, but please also  take a moment to go back and see what I suggested last year. There are links to all kinds of yummy soups, appetizers and desserts.

Start the Game

Purple Potatoes with Blue Cheese

Crostini with Edamame Avocado

Tuscan White Bean Bruschetta with Crispy Kale

Pears with Blue Cheese

Red and Golden Beet Crostini with Goat Cheese and Honey

Blackberry Shallot Fig Jam Crostini with Crispy Prosciutto

Blackberry Sangria

Half Time

Snowcap Heirloom Beans with Shrimp, Green Olives, and Lime with Homemade Corn tortillas

Bolognese Sliders

Pizza with Pancetta and Broccoli Rabe

Purple Potatoes with Blue Cheese

The Best Egg Salad

Meatballs with Blueberry Compote

Tuscan Chopped Kale Salad with Toasted Almonds

Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

Finish Line

Chocolate Ribbon Cupcakes

Butter Pecan Oatmean Granola Bars

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hand Held Apple Pies

Red Velvet Cake

So tell me are you going to diet on Sunday or go all out?

Love those purple potatoes! All of those recipes sound fantastic for a great game day spread.

Angela, what a great list. I have been drooling over those bolognese sliders since you posted them:)
I know you are going to have a good and tasty party tomorrow!

Ooo, such great ideas. I love finger foods, and all of these look great.

I must admit that I have never watched a Super Bowl…never, ever…I swear. I just don’t get football. We watch a lot of Soccer and a bit of Hockey but no football. So alas I have missed all the yummy foods that show up this time of year. But today I am making a wonderful pot of soup, we will watch the half-time Madonna show, I have already watched many of the commercials online…I will walk in the park, read my kindle for a bit & await Downton Abbey. Your menu looks divine! Superbowl or not. Have fun.

I need to watch Downton Abbey. I hope it’s on Demand so I can catch up.

What a fantastic line up of delicious foods and even if you are not watching the ball game, like me, I wonder if I might make a few of these for Fridays on the verandah when summer finally comes! Wonderful. Fantastic to have found you! I run a little sustainable farm out on the prairies and i am always looking for tasty simple recipes to use my home grown foods c

I’m not much of a football person either, and most of these were made for our regular days, (we did do that bean and shrimp soup yesterday). Love to meet people who grow their own food.

It all sounds lovely Angela. The superbowl is obviously not something we watch (or even can watch I think) but it even made the news here in the And ofcourse I couldn’t have missed it even if I had wanted to with all the blogs featuring superbowl snacks and superbowl drinks and superbowl dinners! Hope the game was good!
