What is on your menu for the second-largest day of food consumption in the U. S.? The big game is coming up on February 7, 2016. Try these 9 super appetizing foods for your party:
- Nachos Bar – Have everyone coming to your party bring an item they like on nachos. Imagine the amazing nachos deluxe that you and your friends will enjoy.
- Potato Bar – Bake potatoes and have each guest contribute one or two toppings. Ideas for toppings: real bacon pieces, grated cheese, sauteed veggies, sour cream, butter, chopped green onions, chopped barbecue beef and any other creations you can come up with.
- Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches (cut in small triangles), chips and dips, and Root Beer floats
- Stuffed Mushrooms – Mushrooms seem to be a popular lighter side entree lately. Stuff them with multiple types of cheese and pop into the oven. Variations: use cooked ground breakfast sausage and cream cheese or bacon pieces and grated cheese
- Party Wings – Gotta have wings for the big game party. Barbecue, lemon pepper, Buffalo, garlic and ranch make good wing topping options.

not that I’m from Texas or anything like that)!!! Really, though, it is the best chocolate cake in Texas.
- Fruit pizza – If you’re ordering pizza, make a fruit pizza for dessert.
