10 Sandwich Recipes for the Ultimate Super Bowl Party
Score big on game day with these touchdown-worthy recipes for the ultimate Super Bowl party!
Thai Style Pork Belly Burgers
Eva Kosmas Flores of Adventures in Cooking loves to break out the grill for the Super Bowl, and her latest burger obsession is this Thai-inspired version with ground pork patties and pan-fried pork belly topping, sandwiched between fluffy white kaiser rolls.
What's her secret for a flavorful patty? Eva sautéed kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass in olive oil to infuse the oil with their flavors, and then she added that oil in the ground pork along with ingredients like Thai basil, fresh ginger and chili garlic sauce.
Contributor Aimee Broussard says these hearty pulled pork sandwiches are a "game day crowd pleaser." One bite and you'll be in Super Bowl party heaven.
"The beauty of the recipe is that it's all done in the slow cooker," Aimee says. "You can just fix it and forget it while you prepare the rest of your menu and it comes in super handy when you're pressed for time."
Southwest Burgers with Pepper Jack Cheese and Avocado Salsa
Inspired by the location of this year's Super Bowl in Arizona, Laura Davidson of Blogging Over Thyme created these Southwestern themed burgers. She added plenty of seasonings to the ground beef mixture. "Paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and jalapeno hot sauce--just to name a few!" she lists.
After a bit of trial and error, Laura settled on an amazing avocado salsa topping, which she says "is very quick and easy to throw together." Just add a big bowl of tortilla chips for the leftover salsa and homemade margaritas!
Tomato confit, red leaf lettuce and double smoked, double thick-cut bacon wasn't enough for Chef Billy Parisi. "I had to push this thing over the edge, so I made an Asiago and basil mayo along with topping it off with a fried egg, cheddar cheese and a roasted Portobello mushroom," he says.
"Honestly, this may be one of the top 10 best things I’ve ever eaten, it’s that good," Billy admits.
"Everyone wants to make easy food as well as eat easy food, and by easy food I mean the kind that you can pick up with your hands and go to town on," says Justine Sulia of Cooking and Beer. Her bacon goat cheese burgers are super easy to make and full of delicious flavor.
"The arugula adds the perfect peppery element, while the tang from the goat cheese and the sweetness from the honey really brings it all together," Julia describes. "Oh, and the bacon… I feel like that should go without saying. Crispy, salty bacon: the perfect ingredient to round the whole thing out."
"Buffalo chicken nirvana. I can’t get enough," raves Serena Wolf of Domesticate ME! about the filling of her open-face subs. To balance out its fieriness, she tops it with tangy ranch slaw and crumbled blue cheese.
"The Buffalo chicken and slaw can be made a day ahead, so all you'll need to do on game day is warm up the chicken, assemble the sandwiches and do your victory dance," says Serena.
Grilled Bratwurst Subs with Italian Peppers and Onions
"The best Super Bowl recipes include hearty warm subs that not only fill you up but keep you warm," says John Thomas of Grilling 24x7. He takes simple grilled bratwurst sausage to the next level with skillet-cooked tomato sauce with onions and peppers.
"The end result is a big hearty sub with sausage and peppers that will keep your Super Bowl party guests happy," John shares.
This isn't your ordinary tuna melt. Robin Gagnon of Mom Foodie swapped old school mayonnaise for flavorful roasted tomatoes and aged cheddar cheese to give this panini a punch of flavor. "It's been kicked up a notch to make it gourmet Super Bowl fare worthy," she says.
She recommends choosing Yellowfin tuna packed in water for "great flavor without the off-putting fishiness of many tunas." Quality ingredients make this spectacular sandwich a winner.
Maple Sage Apple and Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Kiersten Frase of Oh My Veggies confesses that grilled cheese sandwiches are one of her favorite foods, and her apple and cheddar version is pretty versatile. "It's easy enough to throw together for a quick meal, but it's also tasty enough to serve to guests," she says.
Glazing the tender, sautéed apples with a little maple syrup makes them the perfect compliment to cheddar cheese. "I make this with both smoked and sharp cheddar—if you want the gooey, stringy grilled cheese effect, go with sharp, but if you want a smoky, almost bacon-y flavor, stick with the smoked cheddar," she advises.
