Amazing Super Bowl Sandwich Stadiums

Check out these amazing sandwich stadiums we found on Pinterest

Try to recreate these amazing food stadiums for your super bowl party.

When game day arrives, so do your football-loving guests and them come equipped with an empty stomach. You shouldn’t be worried. After all you’ve got the essential wings, the delicious pizza and the standard sandwich tray. But when you look at your spread, you can’t help but think you could turn it up a notch.

You don’t have to immediate head back into the kitchen and start cooking up a storm. All you need to do is simply make your average food do spectacular things! How, may you ask? It is all about the presentation! One way fans are making a splash with their spreads are through “sandwich stadiums” and boy, did we find some impressive ones. Check out these edible odes to a football-lovers’ sanctuary here:

Appetizer Stadium

Forget the sandwiches, this dip-based stadium is perfect for halftime snack-time. We love how the field is a delicious dip and the impressive array of dippers that you can have guests try out.

Elaborate

Just look at the attention to detail! This stadium has all of the pickings a fan could ask for from pigs-in-a-blanket to pinwheels. Check out the attention to detail with the adorable broccoli trees and baked cars.

DIY Station

Instead of crafting sandwiches to put into a display, this creative stadium crafter made it a DIY experience, using the ingredients for a touchdown worthy sandwich. We love the usage of different cheese and the rolls that serve as the stadium walls!


Super Bowl 2020: Food ideas, best party snacks, how to make easy appetizers for game day

Whether you’re rooting for the 49ers, the Chiefs or the commercials and the halftime show, everyone can agree that one of the best parts of Super Bowl LIV (this Sunday at 6 p.m. ET) is the food. From the classic staples to wild and inventive alternates, here are some Super Bowl snacks and food recipes to consider for your party.

Wings are a staple of football stadiums, bars, restaurants and Super Bowl parties across the country.

  • Keep it simple: Give the people what they want with these classic (and spicy) buffalo wings. Don’t forget the ranch.
  • Step it up: Haven’t given up on your New Year’s resolution yet? Go for these baked chicken wings and save on napkins.
  • Go all the way: If you’re ready to get saucy, red chimichurri wings–chock full of red peppers, garlic, balsamic vinegar, herbs and more–will give your gathering an extra bit of originality. Plus, red goes with Chiefs fans and 49ers fans.

Nachos are another classic stadium food you can’t go without. It’s one of the most customizable Super Bowl party options, so you can really get creative with it.

  • Keep it simple: You can’t go wrong with the basics like these quick and easy nachos topped with BBQ pork.
  • Step it up: Go DIY with a nacho bar filled with the toppings of your choice, like guacamole, salsa, cheese and more. This choose-your-own-adventure food is perfect for the inventive and picky eaters a like.
  • Go all the way: For anyone ready to show off, this crazy nachos recipe tops already-loaded nachos with chipotle taco meat and homemade guacamole.

Dips, particularly buffalo chicken dip, are Big Cat’s preferred alternate to nachos. Don’t forget to set out the chips, crackers or maybe just giant spoons. For an added touch, put everything in a football dip bowl.

  • Keep it simple: Ditch the jar of cheese sauce in favor of creamy homemade queso dip.
  • Step it up: Big Cat’s dip of choice is buffalo chicken dip—especially if you’re skipping the buffalo wings.
  • Go all the way: Give your guests something to write home about with bacon cheeseburger dip.

Pizza is synonymous with sports and parties. Do it up, keep it simple, a pizza is still pizza.

  • Keep it simple: Pizza is a universal party food, and nothing says hospitality like homemade pizza. Let your guests get creative with decorate-your-own personal pizzas, or make one pie big enough to feed a small army.
  • Step it up: Stick with the football theme and use pepperonis to decorate your pizza like a pigskin.
  • Go all the way: Take things from 2D to 3D with a cheesy pizza football bomb (throwing not recommended) stuffed with goodness.

Chili is kind of messy—but so is football. Give the fans what they really want with the perfect winter food.

  • Keep it simple: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Stick with a traditional, classic chili.
  • Step it up: Marry your chili with hotdogs, yet another stadium staple, by making homemade coney dogs. Don’t forget to top with cheese.
  • Go all the way: Want some carbs to go with your carbs? Go with a dish full of chili mac and cheese.

Sliders are great for the mobile snacker, grazer or distracted sports fan. Slider is just a fancy way to say sandwich, so again, your options are wide open here.

  • Keep it simple: Pretty self-explanatory: A cheeseburger, but miniature. These bite-sized snacks can be made in one giant casserole dish.
  • Step it up: Can’t decide between pizza and sliders? Combine them for messy but flavorful pepperoni pizza sliders.
  • Go all the way: Eat like Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs with a Kansas City-style BBQ pulled pork slider.

Pigs in a blanket might be Big Cat’s lazier alternative to sliders, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less exciting. They’re as good as corn dogs, but classier.

  • Keep it simple: February is fullblown blanket season. Keep your guests warm with these classic pigs in a blanket.
  • Step it up: Pinkies up for this cranberry-Dijon dipping sauce specifically engineered for pigs in a blanket.
  • Go all the way: If you get one cheat day a week, make it Super Bowl Sunday, especially if you go for bacon-wrapped smokies. A bacon blanket is still a blanket, right?

Dessert is a universal crowd-pleaser. You’ve got to balance all of that sodium out with some sugar.


The Easiest, Most Impressive Snack Stadium Ever

It takes a village to build a snack stadium. That, patience, and upper-body strength.

Okay, so that's an exaggeration. The truth is, when we set out to create a snack stadium, we did the research. We looked at all the pins on Pinterest, the amazing stuff created by our sister brands, the crazy ideas dreamed up by rabid football fans around the country. And we quickly came to a conclusion: everything looked kind of HARD. Like, too hard for us. People seemed to have unheralded engineering degrees, backgrounds in carpentry, or training in the fine art of cardboard origami. All we wanted to do was make something awesome that anyone&mdasheven us&mdashcould handle.

Then our art director, Mike, had an idea: What if we created a snack stadium straight out of the stuff you'd want to eat&mdashno structure required? It was a revelation. All it would really be was a study in placement. And, we thought, if we carefully showed how we placed everything, anyone could do it.

So here we are. We did it. And it was awesome. PIN IT, and you'll have it forever:

1. The outer ring: Drinks. We created an ombre wall of Gatorade&mdashwhat could be more sporty?!&mdashand an inner ring of sparkling water (something for all tastes). Then we padded the sides (the stands, if you will) with soda on one side and beer on the other.

2. The end zones: Chips and dips. With drinks as a foundation, we created cardboard levels to hold guacamole and hummus (the individual cups available at Costco were perfect for this set-up&mdashguests can just grab and go). In each corner, we kept it simple (and avoiding dirtying bowls) by propping up open bags of chips and snacks.

3. The cheering sections: Pre-portioned cups. Individual cups of Pringles (best. party. snack. ever.) line up in front of the cans&mdashand in front of them, cups of mozzarella sticks (each with a marinara-sauce base) and buffalo wings.

4. The field: Sandwiches and more. We took pre-made platters of sandwich wraps and placed them at the ends of the field. Then, with a spinach dip at the 50-yard line, we created a face-off between chips and veggies (taken from a pre-made veggie platter). At our party, chips won by a landslide. Duh.

Beyoncé and Coldplay better bring it to the halftime performance: this snack stadium might just upstage them.


The Best Main Course For Your Super Bowl Party

Elizabeth Heiskell: “I just like to nibble and nosh all day. My husband on the other hand, he would look at this plow through it and then be like where’s the rest of the food? That’s why we came up with these amazing cheesy Parm Sandwiches. It’s just Farm Rich mozzarella sticks, we cook those off until they get nice and golden brown on the outside and ooey gooey in the middle. Put them on a hoagie roll with some marinara sauce and a chicken cutlet. Honey, these are to die for.

They’re perfect for any game day. Honestly this is a great recipe if you’re short on time and just need to get a weeknight dinner on the table. Your family and friends will love this recipe.”

This "Super Bowl Sundae" Ice Cream Bar Will Score a Touchdown At Your Party

The guests you invite over to watch the big game probably have pretty strong feelings about who should win the Super Bowl, but ice cream is one thing everyone can agree on. In addition to the usual game day appetizers, who not serve up something sweet and punny? We love the idea of a Super Bowl sundae bar, where football fans can build their own bowls from a variety of ice cream flavors, syrups, and toppings. This genius idea is a total touchdown&mdashand you'll be sure to secure your place in the hostess hall of fame. Ready, set, hike!

Keep ice cream (homemade or store-bought) frozen by placing bowls in a cooler of ice.

To keep cleanup to a minimum, build the "Super Bowls" in cute disposable cups with yard lines.

Get this ice cream pie recipe at Cooking with Curls.

Or, get super creative with stadium-inspired bowls, like these by Katrina's Kitchen.

Get the recipe at In Katrina's Kitchen.

Of syrups and toppings, that is. Display the offerings in little jars or bowls or even a muffin pan! Extra points for adding football-inspired touches, like whistles tied around the syrup jars.

Get the tutorial at About a Mom.

Mark toppings (like these jars of trail mix) with penalty flags.

Get the tutorial at Celebrations at Homeblog.

A little salty to complement the sweet is always a good idea. Give chocolate-covered pretzels laces to go with the football theme.

Get the recipe at Sarah's Bake Studio.

Or incorporate your favorite team's colors by using candy melts. Display them (and other toppings) in Mason jars painted to look like footballs.

Get the recipe at Two Sisters Crafting.

Nothing like warm brownies in an ice cream sundae. Toss one in yours for touchdown texture and flavor.

Get the recipe at Celebrating Sweets.

For a healthier alternative, dress strawberries up like footballs instead.

Get the recipe at Like Mother Like Daughter.

Have frosting-laced ice cream sandwiches on offer for those who really want to trick out their sundaes.

Get the tutorial at The Celebration Shoppe.

And because what's a Super Bowl without beer, offer root beer and boozy root beer so guests can make their sundaes float.


What We're Making This Weekend: Insanely Amazing Super Bowl Chow

Let's face it: The Super Bowl is about gorging on your favorite food almost as much as it's about actually watching the game.

So if you're planning on throwing a Super Bowl party, skip the cold crudité platter and go for something a bit more scrumptious. Luckily for you, some of New York City's finest chefs are sharing their favorite game day dishes.

We've got everything from Asian-spiced beef jerky to more traditional Super Bowl fare with a tasty twist. So start planning your mouth-watering menu, stat!

1. Pat LaFrieda's Original Filet Mignon Sandwich: Served on crusty bread, this dish is sure to silence any crowd that's getting a little rowdy. They'll be too busy chowing down on this heavenly sandwich!

Ingredients:
3 Filet Mignon medallions, 2oz each
1 tsp salt
3 oz oil
6 oz sweet onions
2 slices Monterey Jack cheese
2 oz au jus
6-inch baguette
Drizzle of balsamic glaze
Pinch of sugar

Directions: Cut the sweet onions into 1" cubes and caramelize until they are a deep brown color. Set onions aside. Make an au jus by reducing your beef stock by half until it richly coats the back of a spoon, and finish with balsamic glaze. Set aside and keep hot. Season the medallions with salt and sugar. On a flat skillet heat 1oz of oil and sear the filet mignon medallions. Cook for about about 1 to 1.5 minutes per side. Set aside. Take 2 tbsp. of the caramelized onions and place onto a pan to heat up. Cover the onions with two slices of the cheese and allow to melt over the onions. Toast the baguette so that the outside is hot and crusty. Hinge the Baguette and place the 3 filet mignon medallions on the bottom of the baguette. Top with the caramelized onions and cheese. Finish with 2oz of the au jus. This should be ladled on the inside of the top half of the baguette.

2. Khe-Yo's Chef Phet Schwader's Beef Jerky Recipe: This beef jerky is packed with flavors no jerky has seen before: a little sweet from the oyster sauce, a tad crunchy from the sesame seeds and a savory kick from the fish sauce.

Ingredients:
5 lbs top round sirloin, cut along the grain into strips (approximately 1" thick x 4" long)
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oyster sauce
1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
2 tbsp garlic powder
10 cloves garlic, slightly crushed
1 tbsp salt

Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together and marinate beef for 24 hours. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Lay strips on a rack over a sheet pan and place in oven with the door cracked open slightly. Rotate the pan every 15 minutes for 1 to 1.5 hours or until the jerky is dry. Heat 1 ½ cups of oil in a large pan and fry the jerky on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from oil and coat with sesame seeds.

3. Taquitoria's Buffalo Chicken Taquitos or "Buffalitos:" If you love buffalo wings, but hate the sticky mess then this tasty dish is for you. Everything is wrapped up into a crispy wrapper making for perfect game day finger food.

Ingredients
Braised chicken pieces (include some on the bone)
1 cup Bloody Mary mix
4 tbsp salt Water
2 tbsp buffalo sauce
8 six-inch corn tortillas Canola oil

Directions: In a Dutch oven, cover the chicken with the Bloody Mary mix, water, and salt. Braise at 300ºF for 2-3 hours. When cooked through (the meat should fall off the bones), allow to cool in liquid. Strain the chicken, pull all the meat and discard the bones. Strain the braising liquid through a fine strainer in order to preserve all the mustard and horseradish from the Bloody Mary mix. Discard the liquid. Mix the chicken with the buffalo sauce. Set aside. Fry the tortillas at 275º-300º F for about 30 seconds. This will soften them. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Place about 2 tablespoons of meat in the tortilla, roll it up, and secure tightly with two toothpicks. Heat oil fryer up to 375º F and fry tortilla for about a minute, until crispy. Serve with a side of ranch dressing, buffalo sauce, or dipping of choice.

The Super Bowl is an annual football tradition that’s endured since the late 1960s. While some may tune in for the commercials, loyal football fans hope for more than just their team’s victory. Each Super Bowl brings with it the promise of an amazing moment that will be talked about for generations — the all important “impossible catch.” These catches can turn the tide or keep opponents at bay. Whichever the case, they’re often uniquely unforgettable.

These five catches represent the very best in Super Bowl history.

Max McGee’s One-Armed Catch, Super Bowl I (1967)

Max McGee holds an honor that no other football player will ever share: he was the first NFL player to ever score a touchdown in a Super Bowl. The catch could have made it onto this list for that reason alone, but it just so happened to be an amazing moment on its own. Despite having a Kansas City Chiefs player leaping towards him, McGee maintains his nerve and reaching behind with just one arm, manages to grab hold of the football.

The angle of the grab should have made the ball nearly impossible to catch, let alone hold onto, but McGee does both and dashes away for his history-making touchdown.

Lynn Swann Takes Flight, Super Bowl X (1976)

Swans are some of the most majestic, graceful birds in nature. Perhaps the name lent a bit of a psychological edge to prolific Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lynn Swann. Swann was always known for rising over the heads of frustrated defenders to make incredible catches. One of his most famous achievements came by way of Super Bowl X. Remembered as the “Levitating Leap,” Lynn Swann’s catch is routinely named as one of the best catches ever. However, Swann himself wasn’t quite as impressed as onlooking football fans.

Said Swann, “I’ve always said if I had done it right, I would have caught the ball the first time, came down and kept running for a touchdown.” This from a man who wasn’t expected to play at all after suffering a concussion during the Steelers’ AFC Championship game against the Oakland Raiders.

David Tyree’s “Helmet Catch,” Super Bowl XLII (2008)

The question asked again and again, no matter how many times one sees the above clip. Every aspect of the play is simply incredible. First, there’s Giants quarterback Eli Manning defying what many thought was an almost certain sack. Then there’s Manning breaking free and throwing the ball way down the field, a sort of “Hail Mary.” The play ends with wide receiver David Tyree’s bold leap into the air and using his own helmet to maintain his hold on the football.

It was part of the game-winning drive that sealed the fate of the previously undefeated New England Patriots. Although not the touchdown pass, it was certainly the play that put the Giants on the path to victory.

Julio Jones’ Nail-Biting Sideline Catch, Super Bowl LI (2017)

Had the Atlanta Falcons held off the New England Patriots, then Julio Jones’ sideline catch might have been remembered as the catch of the game. That it’s one of the best catches of Super Bowl LI, and best catches in Super Bowl history is of little consolation to Jones or the Falcons.

Despite making plays like the above, the Falcons blew a 25-point lead, allowing the Patriots to make the most epic comeback in Super Bowl history.

Julian Edelman’s Miraculous Reflexes, Super Bowl LI (2017)

It may take a few years — and a few more Super Bowls — to allow this catch to be properly viewed in the context of decades. For now, it’s easy to see why Edelman’s catch is a contender for the best Super Bowl catch ever.

To begin, the catch was itself a tipped-football away from being an interception. Had it happened, the Falcons might have successfully held off the Patriots and ultimately won. Instead, Julian Edelman’s reflexes went to work. He didn’t just manage to dive in time to grab the football he also reacted fast enough to get a grip on the ball when it was barely a couple of inches off the ground. It was a suspenseful moment, one that some feel marked the beginning of the Patriots’ surprising comeback.

These catches are special in their own way. Some may argue that one is greater than the over for one reason or another. However, there is one thing that everyone can agree on: The sheer magic of these Super Bowl catches will never be forgotten.
