Super Bowl Sunday is synonymous with a few things: wings, sliders, and dip—but even the most culinarily gifted host wouldn't fathom to put all three, plus twenty other finger foods, on one platter. Yet snack-adiums (aka an assortment of snacks erected in the shape of a football stadium) are the top trending recipe on Pinterest for the second year in a row, prompting Americans across the country to rethink their game day spread.

We decided to ask Andrew Zimmern, host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods and Taste of the NFL's Party with a Purpose, for his take grandiose recipe, which features his trademark Canteen Dogs, spring rolls, and fruit, along with a few heart attack-inducing items. "Hot dogs are the ultimate Super Bowl snack," he tells InStyle. The extra accoutrements "may take a little longer to put together," he says, "but I guarantee it's worth the extra effort."

As for the construction of the stadium itself, Zimmern recommends starting with cardboard magazine filers, hot gluing each section together, cutting styrofoam to assemble the corners, then using alumninum foil pans to make the field and aluminum dividers to make the end zones. Read on below for his full list of ingredients, which he says should "fill each section until it looked robust and full," and watch the food fortress come to life in the video below. This is how it's done, people.
