Entertaining Tips for the Big Game
Two football teams aren’t the only ones gearing up for the big game this Sunday. Party hosts are prepping their kitchens and living rooms for entertaining in hopes of serving touchdown finger foods for a champion-worthy party. If you’re looking for recipe and décor ideas that are sure to wow guests this Super Bowl weekend, we’ve got you covered.[related]
Malia Hasegawa, culinary specialist and Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen blogger, has developed delicious and easy recipes that will not only please a crowd, but give hosts more time to watch the game and less time in the kitchen.
Hot Reuben Dip
This twist on the classic Reuben sandwich transforms into the perfect dish for a crowd. With just a handful of ingredients, this comfort dip is ready in under 30 minutes. Skip the chips and dunk with Krusteaz Garlic and Onion Flatbread sticks.
Bruschetta Bites are a quick and easy appetizer that can be made in large batches. Mix together your tomato topping and add a dollop on the top of whole wheat flatbread for an easy, healthy snack.
Pizza shops and food delivery are sure to be flooded with orders on the day of the game. Instead of turning to takeout menus, whip up your own meatball calzones (made in 30 minutes). Serve whole or in slices for individual pieces.
You may not want to fire up the grill for burgers, but you can make cheeseburger turnovers that are a neater, handheld option that will satisfy the carnivores at your party.

You can also set your party apart by going the extra yard with easy, football-themed entertaining décor. For cocktails or sodas, serve beverages in mason jars, marked like a football with duct tape and add a chevron straw with a yard line inspired banner for guests to easily label their drinks!
If you’re adding snacks like popcorn and chips to your tablescape, skip the bowl and give guests individual football-decorated brown bags. Easy to serve and no cleanup necessary!
