It’s time for healthy Super Bowl recipes that put a refreshing spin on classic game day foods! There’s dips, salsas, tasty chicken wings, bite-sized nibbles, and meals for a crowd – all things to satisfy your hungry team.
Plan Your Super Bowl Food Ideas
While game day is all about football, we can’t deny that food is just as important. And this selection of healthy finger-lickin’ snacks, appetizers, and meals will help you bring your “A” game to the party. But first, here’s a quick guideline to plan out your game day menu and party essentials.
Gather your best appetizers. Super Bowl is all about finger foods! So make sure you have a solid selection of appetizers laid out across your table for everyone to nibble on throughout the game. Have fun with different flavors, textures, and colors.
For a bigger party, plan communal meals. Aside from appetizers, a bigger crowd will most likely need a bit more oopmh to fill their stomachs. Think build-your-own tacos (or wraps with tortillas or lettuce leaves), and plates of colorful chicken kabobs or grilled shrimp skewers.
Organize all your servingware a day before. This will help you plan the layout of your food on the table. Also, don’t forget to make what you can ahead of time, such as slow cooker meat or easy dips like hummus. This will make your game day morning much less stressful.
Alright, now that you’ve got your dips sorted, make sure you’ve got your finger foods! Whip up a few different appetizers to keep the table options interesting throughout the game.
Think Communal Meals For A Large Super Bowl Party
If you’ve got a large crowd, think communal meals where they can build, grab, and go! This can mean building your own tacos (with some of the above dips as condiments), or a homemade pizza where it’s easy to grab a slice.

4garlic cloves, minced
1tablespoonginger, finely diced
2poundschicken wings, tips removed and drumettes separated (24-26 wings)
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then use a paper towel to remove any moisture from the chicken wings.
In a large bowl, toss the wings with the oil, salt, and pepper.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet then place a wire rack on top. Spread out the wings on a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until they’re crispy.
As the wings are baking, make the sauce. Add the honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and water to a small pot. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat to low letting it simmer for 10 minutes until it thickens.
Remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool.
Remove wings from the oven, toss them in the sauce and place them back in the oven on the baking sheet. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
