Superbowl Extravaganza

john's picture

For whatever reason, Super Bowl is when most of us get reaquainted with the fine art of multi-hour, free-form snacking. Chili, wings, dips, canapes, crudites, sandwiches, nuts... anything is welcome on the communal coffee table so long as it agrees with beer and requires minimal attention to consume. I suppose the strong flavors we crave is our way of compensating for this high level of distraction, a way for each bite to register amidst the anticipation, the cheering, the booing.

We are happy to lavish attention on perhaps the least-used type of recipe for home cooks: party-friendly appetizers that pack bold flavors. Here are some of our tongue-slappingly delicious favorites (click on an image for the recipe):

Crispy Potato Skins

Texas Caviar

Looking for something a little classier?

Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Canapés

Tapenade

Smoked Salmon Canapés

Perhaps you're convinced that no one will be satiated by snacks? Some heartier crowd-friendly fare might be in order:

Pulled Pork Sandwich with W.N.C. vinegar sauce

This spicy and flavorful substiute for Buffalo Chicken will warm you up (grill not required).

Grilled Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Loaded with flavor, packed with seasonal vegetables, finger-friendly, crowd-friendly, hearty, and healthy? Why not.

Stuffed Collard Leaves
