Super Bowl parties are just days away, bringing with them the year’s best treats. Messy wings and heaps of carbs bring everyone together—no matter which team you support. And at culture, we know what really scores a touchdown with a crowd: a whole lot of cheese. With all this melty, gooey goodness, we’re not sure whether we’re more excited about the game or the food. Here’s what to serve up during the big game this Sunday.
Get the Party Started
- Fancy up that party mix and make your own parmesan-laced version. You won’t miss the orange dust—trust us.
- Don’t limit yourself to just drinking beer when you can eat it too. Hefeweizen and cheese make a hefty dip for chips, crackers, and bread. You can even go the extra mile with these cheese-stuffed beer pretzels too.
- Feeling a Mexican-inspired queso? Opt for this version with chiles and Queso Oaxaca. It’s melty as hell, and if you’ve got herbivorous friends, it’s just as tasty meat-free.
- When the game gets dicey, a little heat will keep you paying attention. Try our pimento cheese. We like using a whole lot of hot sauce to kick up the spice level.
- Honor the Eagles with a snackable version of the Philadelphia favorite: simple cheesesteak bites filled with cheese, onions, and meat. Pro tip: Premade pastry makes your life easy and keeps your guests happy.
- Make a nod to New England with seafood sliders with crab and Brie. They’re definitely not approved by the Tom Brady diet, but hey, you’re watching the game, not playing it.
Or Play it Safe
- If you’re not a fan of playing favorites, make a cheese plate inspired by the Northeast, with picks from New England and Pennsylvania to appease both sides.
- Or, forgo it all with a Midwestern arrangement and honor our Dairy Belt instead—after all, the game’s in Minneapolis.
Nacho Typical Chips
- For meaty treats, we’ve got fully-loaded nachos: buffalo chicken or covered in carnitas. They’re both slow cooker ready since we know you’ve got jerseys to buy and face paint to don.
- Want to make it your own? Try this guide for no-recipe nachos so you can swap in whatever you prefer. A vegetarian option, perhaps?
- There’s no better time than Game Day for gooey, thick, bright orange “cheese product,” especially when it’s melted onto tater tots. We like to call them “totchos.”
