What's your favorite Super Bowl recipe?

I have a 3 qt Instapot Duo Mini and I'm looking for some vegetarian recipes.

But… I'm also curious about what my fellow Mefis are cooking up for LIII.

Go Rams!

I make these every year and people love them (and it's now at the point where I'm not allowed to not make them). The recipe is vegan but you can use real mayo if that's what you have (the tahini is a bit less optional, but if you don't already have it on hand and don't want to buy it just for this, I'd probably just go with more mayo).

It went over well when we did fondue one year. We made cheese fondue, with breads, celery, carrots, green apples, and broccoli. Then we had a chocolate fondue with pound cake, marshmallows, potato chips, wafer cookies, strawberries, and pineapple.

For every Superbowl party I've had, I've made these pretzel bites with beer-cheese dipping sauce. Yes, you're making pretzels from scratch. If you're okay with that level of ambition, they're actually really easy and everybody adores them!

This is the best spinach and artichoke dip ever. The recipe is clipped from a magazine from years ago, but it's my go-to and great in a crockpot:

Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Serves 12

1/2 Cup fresh shallots, minced
2 10-oz. packages of chopped frozen spinach, thawed and drained
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
4 T butter
2 8-oz. cans quartered artichoke hearts, drained, roughly chopped
2 Cups heavy cream
8 oz. garlic herb cheese (Rondele works great here)
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 Cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a large frying pan, saute shallots and garlic in butter over medium heat. Add well-drained spinach and artichokes and cook on low heat briefly. Add cream, garlic, herb cheese, salt and pepper. Simmer until cheese is melted and mixture is blended. Remove from heat, and fold in the grated Parmesan cheese. Place in heatproof crock pot or ramekin. Good with pita chips!

Bun stuffers

Basically like this approach, but you use those flaky Grand rolls.

- Prep your filling
- pound a Grand roll until it's flat
- put filing in middle and roll edges over top, pinching top closed
- [optional] egg wash

They're easy to prepare ahead and bake Just-In-Time, they're infinitely customizable* and they're pretty hardy instead of just a snack.

*I've done them with traditional hamburger/cheese/pickles, I've done chicken/sundrytomats/pesto, I've done crockbeef/mushroom/marsala, etc

My go-to for the past few years has been the spicy brittled peanuts from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook. You can vary the spices if you like; I usually double the cayenne to 1/4 tsp and throw in a little bit of smoked paprika.

People at least year's party have asked me to make this black eyed pea and corn dip again this year.

These roasted potatoes with paprika mayo are fantastic and the added benefit is you can use the paprika mayo as a dip for other random things: celery, cukes, carrots, etc.
