The big game is finally here! If you’re hosting a party this year or need ideas for a dish to bring to a friend’s house, I have over 22 Super Bowl finger food ideas that you’ll love. The best part? They’re all so easy to make!
22 Fun Super Bowl Finger Food Ideas We’re Crushing On
1. Honey BBQ Crockpot Meatballs
These BBQ crockpot meatballs are the perfect finger food for the big game. The tangy BBQ sauce will make it impossible to eat just a few of them. And they’ll pair well with just about any other party food. If you want to save time, you can use frozen meatballs. Aside from the meat, you need just a few things: grape jelly, honey and BBQ sauce.
2. Crack Corn Dip
I know, technically, dip isn’t a finger food. But you can’t have dip without chips, right? Chips are definitely a finger food. This dip is so easy to make. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it dish because it cooks in a slow cooker. Your house will smell amazing while you’re making this dip, which has corn, jalapenos, sour cream, Colby jack cheese, limes, queso fresco, cilantro and bacon.
3. Pigs in a Blanket
The classic finger food for Super Bowl parties. This recipe is perfect because it tastes better than frozen pigs in a blanket, but it’s still so easy to make. You’ll need just a few things: crescent dough, Dijon mustard, egg whites, cocktail wieners and everything bagel seasoning. You can ditch the seasoning if you want, but I think it adds a nice kick of flavor.
4. Loaded Tater Tot Skewers
Tater tots on a stick? Sign me up. These are the ultimate finger food for Super Bowl parties, and they are one of the easiest to make, too. All you need are frozen tater tots, lots of cheddar cheese, bacon bits, green onions and some sour cream. Line them up on a skewer and serve!
5. Chicken and Waffle Sliders
Chicken and waffle sliders are one of the Super Bowl finger food ideas that guests always seem to love. And they’re also so easy to make – which is good for me. You’ll only need a few things:
- Mini waffles
- Chicken fingers
- Maple syrup
Some people do serve these with coleslaw, but that’s 100% up to you.
6. Loaded Smashed Potatoes
Smashed potatoes take just over an hour to make, and if you’re not careful, you’ll eat them all before your guests arrive. Crispy and flavor-filled, this game day food is topped with bacon, chives, cheese and sour cream for a mouthful of flavor.
7. Ham and Cheese Sliders
Sometimes, the tastiest foods are those that are the easiest to make. These ham and cheese sliders can be adapted to include any meat that you like. Salami, baloney or turkey would work equally as well.
Simple Joy uses Hawaiian rolls for the bread, but you can use whichever bread you prefer.
If you want to melt the cheese and toast the bread, you can bake the sliders for a few minutes.
8. Maple Caramel Bacon Crack
Maple, caramel and bacon? Domestic Rebel has a great recipe that’s crispy, sweet and absolutely addictive. You’ll need a few ingredients, including bacon, crescent rolls, maple syrup and brown sugar.
You’ll cook the crescent rolls until they’re a perfect crispy texture, and then have the hardiness of bacon and the sweetness of maple syrup on top.
If you want to serve something a little different this Super Bowl, be sure to give this recipe a try.
9. BBQ Sausage Bites
Four ingredients are all you need for this recipe: smoked sausage, brown sugar, Dijon mustard and barbecue sauce. You’ll add them to a baking dish, cook at 350 degrees and serve with toothpicks for a no-mess finger food option.
10. Tortilla Jalapeno Popper Bites
Do you like a bit of spice in your appetizers? These easy jalapeno popper bites are spicy, creamy and small enough to pop in your mouth in a single bite. You’ll make the creamy filling with cream cheese, green onions, bacon, pepper jack cheese, cheddar cheese and jalapenos.
I find it best to let the filling sit for a day or two before filling the Tortilla scoops with them and baking.
11. Pig Shots
Vegetarians will want to skip over these Super Bowl finger food ideas, but meat lovers will enjoy the pop of flavor. You’ll be making small bites that are oven-baked and made with:
- Smoked sausage
- Cream cheese mixture
- BBQ honey glaze
- Sour cream
All it takes is 45 – 50 minutes to bake these pig bites to perfection.
12. Quesadilla Crisps
I don’t know why I never thought to make these on my own. Mini quesadilla crisps are always a welcomed finger food at any party, and they take all of five minutes to reheat. You’ll only need to buy tortillas, green chilies, butter and your preference of cheese (jalapeno jack and cheddar work great).
Add all but the tortillas to a large mixing bowl, fill the tortillas and place on a large sheet pan before baking.
13. Cream Cheese Tortilla Bites
Cream cheese tortilla bites take less than 15 minutes to make. You can even make these during the Half Time show if you like. And with 36 servings, there will be more than enough left in the fourth quarter of the game to eat more.
You’ll need tortillas (so much better if you make them), cream cheese, everything seasoning, and butter.
They taste great in the air fryer and won’t have all of the excess oil left behind if you plan on deep frying them.
14. Pepperoni Pizza Rolls
Pizza is my weakness – when it’s good. You’ll find these small pizza rolls are more flavor-filled than Hot Pockets or similar alternatives. As the perfect party snack, you’ll be making a pizza casserole that you’ll cut into these delightful rolls.
You’ll find the dough in most grocery stores and will need the usual ingredients: seasoning, marinara sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, Parm cheese and a few others.
And don’t forget your pizza cutter.
15. Mini Big Macs
Superbowl and Big Macs? Sign me up. If you know how to make hamburgers, you can easily make these treats. You’ll want to use 85% lean ground beef, but you can opt for meat alternatives if you like. Bean burgers are delicious and a great option for vegetarians who still want to enjoy these burger bites.
You’ll only need some seasoning, buns, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and any other toppings that you like.
16. Spinach Dip Bites
I thought that adding these spinach bites to my Super Bowl finger food ideas would be a great idea because it’s on the healthier side. You’ll need a non-stick muffin tin, which you’ll fill with 2” crescent dough squares.
You’ll need quite a few other ingredients, including crumbled bacon, ham, cooked sausage, mushrooms, roasted peppers and quite a few more. But the end result is popping with flavor.
17. Tostitos Taco Bites
Anyone – even my youngest family member – can make these treats. You’ll be using Tostitos to make tiny taco bites filled with a tiny bit of ground beef, cheese, refried beans, diced tomatoes and taco seasoning. It’s the perfect snack while watching the game.
18. Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Poppers
You’ll find another great recipe for poppers below, but this one is more bacon focused. And it’s very spicy. You’ll be making 36 poppers, and it’s so simple. You only need cream cheese, green onions, onion and garlic powder, jalapenos and shredded cheese.
Just wrap the bacon around the sliced jalapenos. Bake on a baking sheet, and you’re good to go.
Antojitos is something I’ve never tried before this recipe, and boy was I missing out. Perfect for our vegetarian readers, you’ll be sinking your teeth into this appetizer in just 25 minutes. Little Home in the Making shows you how to make these finger foods step-by-step, and all you need are tortillas, cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheese, jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers, green onions and hot sauce (completely optional).
You can mix the ingredients by hand, but I recommend using an electric hand mixer (like this one on Amazon).
20. Gluten Free Stuffed Pickles
If you have just an hour and twenty minutes, you’ll be able to dive into these stuffed pickle delights. These pickles are not vegetarian-friendly, but you can also find alternatives to the ham.
You’ll need a few ingredients for this recipe:
- Garlic powder
- Mini pickles
- Cheddar cheese
- Cream cheese
Place on a serving tray when ready, and enjoy!
21. Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls
Who would have ever thought that my list of Super Bowl finger food ideas would have these delightful egg rolls? And they taste just like the ones from the Cheesecake Factory – but better. You’ll need just a dozen or so ingredients, including avocadoes, tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime, spices and egg roll wrappers.
You’ll also find instructions on how to make a delicious dipping sauce.
22. Jalapeno Popper Bites
I love jalapeno poppers, and while there are just so many variations, this one is delicious. You’ll make 15 servings, and it takes just over an hour to make these small delights. I also appreciate that the recipe has options for deep frying and air frying.
If you’re having friends over, don’t forget the dipping cups.
You’ll only need a few ingredients, too: Monterey jack cheese, cream cheese, jalapenos, bacon (options), garlic, flour, spices, eggs, breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper and a few others.
