It's Superbowl time!

Now my team may not be playing but the American Football loving girl that I am I still love the event that is the Superbowl. I love eating all kinds of delish game time food, watching the ads and the performances as well as the game. We don't get the ads up here in Canada, but we get everything else, so that means I need to make some good eats for the boy and I. I posted my Slow Cooker Turkey Chili Wednesday, so today I'll give you a round up of some of my favorite foods for the big game.

Grilled Wings with a Chipotle Dry Rub - If you want are in a climate that makes grilling a possibility, make these! They boy loves them and asks for them every chance he gets. If you don't have access to whole dried chipotles, chipotle powder works great too.

Chicken & Roasted Yam Quesadillas - a delicious twist on a traditional quesadilla and perfect for leftover roast chicken.

Muffaletta Sandwich - perfect because it's from New Orleans! There's not enough time now to make a proper olive salad but you can improvise by putting it together today or tomorrow and let it marinate until Sunday, not ideal but it will still make a pretty amazing sandwich! If the boy wants something like this I will make a quick pepper salad with roasted red peppers and peronicinos, garlic, olive oil, salt & pepper. It's not the same but is delicious in it's own way

Maple Whiskey Pulled Chicken Sandwiches - Another super easy slow cooker recipe perfect for football.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
- This one is a crowd pleaser. If you are feeding a crowd. you can roll out and par bake your pizza crusts for about 10 minutes early in the day and then just assemble the pizzas and finish off when your guests arrive.

Hope these idea help spark your thoughts for your upcoming Superbowl gathering. Let me know if you try any of these recipes or what some of your favorite game time foods are. Enjoy!
