There’s no denying that the air fryer wins hearts. Not just for its ability to make crunchy treats without all the extra fat, but for how quickly it can make magic happen!

On game day, the air fryer will come especially in the clutch. It is the perfect device to use while gaming due to its convenience and ability to work in multiple batches.

Whether we’re hosting the Super Bowl or not, we love turning to our Ninja Duel Basket Air Fryer. Twice the space means twice the deliciousness.

Air Fried Ravioli

Air fried ravioli is super easy to make and incredibly satisfying once you take a bite. By dredging and breading individual ravioli, then air frying them until crisp, you’ll end up with a delicious appetizer everyone will love. Serve these with marinara or hot tomato soup.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

With only three ingredients, anyone who loves bacon and anything spicy will love you for making them. All you have to do is cut each jalapeño in half, remove the seeds, stuff it with cream cheese, and wrap it in bacon. Your precious air fryer will do the rest of the work for you.

Macaroni and Cheese Bites

The mac and cheese bites are a big hit, especially on game day. I mean, really, who can resist a deep-fried ball of homemade macaroni, once a cozy casserole? You’ll need a cold batch of baked macaroni and cheese, so if you can plan it right, be sure to save a bowl or two for game day.

Snack Boards for the Crowd

Snack boards are all the rage on Super Bowl Sunday! They’re easy to put together, offer a wide variety of options, and look amazing before they come apart.

Whether you decide to put together a clever soccer-inspired design or go for little stacks of fun snacks, everyone will love having a variety of foods to enjoy during the game.

Here is a festive appetizer that is both decorative and very easy to prepare. By placing small cubes of cheese, crackers, nuts and sausages, you’ll have the chance to recreate an edible goal post right on the board.

It’s beautiful the way it is, but you can work with whatever ingredient you’re feeling. Consider using fruits and vegetables, or make a sweet dessert board to do the exact same design.

Game Day Halftime Snack Board

Any snack board stuffed with mini hot dogs is a go-to dish any day. You can take this a step further by offering small jars of toppings like relish, ketchup, and mustard, or go a little further by offering chili and cheese toppings.

The Krazy Kitchen Mom’s Plate is packed with an array of meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fruits, so everyone at the party will have something to eat, depending on dietary restrictions and preferences.

You can even dig out your freezer to build a game day snack board. See what kind of frozen foods you can put in the oven, then make a beautiful plate out of the assortment.

Mini pizza bites, tater tots, corn dogs, and fried cheese curds are just a few examples of foods that everyone loves to eat. Add a few select dipping sauces and some healthy veggies, and call it a culinary twist!

When you offer a hot bath to a room full of people, you know it won’t last. Dips are not only known for being creamy and delicious, but they can also be made ahead of time. Thus, you can spend time watching the game instead of working in the kitchen all day.

From fresh greens to soft naan bread to crispy potato chips, there are plenty of options for dipping. We say always offer a few different toppings to make everyone happy.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

One of the best alternatives to serving buffalo chicken wings is to offer a hot bubbling bath inspired by the classic flavors. Shredded chicken, melted cheese, and hot sauce make up the bulk of this dip, and trust us when we say it’ll be gone come game day.

crab dip

Seafood lovers rejoice! We found a dreamy, creamy sauce that will satisfy your taste buds like no other. The savory starter is stuffed with crab meat and boasts an incredibly rich cream cheese-based filling. No need to spend a lot of money on fresh meat – canned crab is just as delicious. For best results, avoid imitation crab and look for lump meat in the aisles of your grocery store.

5 Minute Million Dollar Dip

Making a million dollar dip in 5 minutes is a lot less complicated to do, but the results are simply spectacular. It’s one of those addictive apps that everyone will come back for year after year. It’s as simple as combining mayonnaise, bacon bits, shredded cheese, and a few other choice ingredients. After it has cooled slightly, serve it with crackers or small slices of French baguette.

You have to love the humble skillet for its ability to feed many mouths with little effort. The aesthetics tend to be top notch too!

On game day, you’ll especially love the ease of loading and topping your tray with delicious foods that are sure to be gobbled up by hungry football fans.

Easy Skillet Nachos

Skillet nachos are so easy to make and you can make a big batch depending on what you already have in the fridge. Shredded cheese, olives, jalapeños, chiles, tomatoes, you name it, it belongs stacked on top of crispy tortilla chips.

Spicy Chicken Dumplings

This appetizer requires a bit more time compared to some of the others on the list, but trust us, they are worth it. Spicy chicken hidden within the thin walls of each dumpling wrapper comes together for a flavor-packed app. Ginger sauce also works wonders to boost the flavor, so make sure you do that too!

Stromboli Squares with Garlic Butter

Anyone who loves Italian cold cuts like pepperoni and salami paired with mozzarella cheese and garlic has to love stromboli. So, that’s almost everyone, right?

Stack your favorite pizza toppings for this one, then sandwich it between two sheets of pizza dough. From there, your oven will take care of the rest and you will leave your guests totally impressed.

Slow Cooker Selections

Before the Instant Pot and deep fryer, everyone turned to their trusty crock pot for tender, slow-cooked meals. If it’s been a while since you gave it a whirl, these three recipes are sure to give you a reason to dust off that bad boy.

From delicious beer cheese to hearty chili and Italian sausage with peppers, we’re looking for some fan favorites that will help keep zealous fans quiet for at least a few minutes.

Crockpot Beer Cheese

We probably don’t have to say much beyond “beer cheese” because, come on, beer cheese. To make this one, you’ll need to add your ingredients, then let your crock pot slowly heat them up to a flavorful sauce that everyone will gobble up. While it says to serve them with chips, we recommend offering something like salty soft pretzels.

slow cooker chili

Ahh, chili. How we love a hot and hearty plate of meat and bean chili relleno. If you’re looking for something beyond bite-sized snacks, this tends to do the trick. Make a big batch, and while your slow cooker simmers all day, you can work to deliver a large tray of ingredients.

Consider serving avocado slices, Frito corn chips, sour cream, shredded cheese, diced red onion, and spicy jalapeno slices. Your family will love putting together a bowl of stuffing to enjoy at halftime.

sausages and peppers

Sausage and Peppers is another hearty meal you can make to feed everyone this Superbowl Sunday. Whether you fill up some hoagie rolls or eat a plate as is, it will satisfy the taste buds and stomach as everyone spends time in front of the TV screen.


Game day is almost here, which means it’s time to collect some recipes for the crowd! If you don’t have time to prepare a full feast, consider serving up some of Taco Bell’s Treat Boxes.
