Rule number one of Super Bowl Sunday: make a lot more food than you think you’ll need. Whether you’re hosting die-hard football fans, a crowd that’s all about the ads, or even a group of friends who tune in primarily for the halftime show, you’ll want to have snacks they can graze on throughout the game.
Stay away from casserole-style dishes, such as lasagna or enchiladas, which are far too heavy for this type of gathering. (We suggest sticking to those comfort foods for a sit-down dinner party or even an office potluck). When everyone’s gathered around the TV, it makes more sense to have a variety of smaller options instead. And what better way to try a little taste of everything than to make all the dishes bite-sized to begin with?

From mini burgers and sloppy Joes to cheesy single-serve nachos, these bite-sized apps make the perfect game day spread.
