5 Sheet-Pan Appetizers for Your Super Bowl Party

by Waverly Wilde

1. Pretzel Focaccia with Cheese Sauce

Everything you love about soft, flakey focaccia and salty pretzels comes together for one game-changing appetizer. This Super Bowl snack will feed an entire football team and be a crowd favorite at your watch party. 

The pretzel hack is quite simple—all you have to do is gently brush the dough with a hot baking soda mixture to get the rise and texture from a pretzel. 

Just be sure to go for the extra point and spike your bread in a dollop of cheese sauce!

2. Sheet Pan Frito Pie

This childhood favorite has been kicked up a notch to fulfill a serious game day appetite! In just 10 quick minutes in the oven, you’ll have a tray of irresistible cheesy and crunchy goodness. 

Toss the Fritos bags to the side and place your chips on a sheet-pan followed by layers of all your favorite toppings. Add piles of beans, ground beef, cheese, tomatoes, onions, jalapeño, sour cream, a squirt of lime, and season to perfection. 

If you want to get crazy with the flavors, a combination of spicy, chili cheese and honey barbecue Fritos will only add more depth and flavor to this football feast!

3. Twice-Baked Mini Potatoes

If you’re serving up Super-Bowl-worthy appetizers for game day, then you need something poppable. Twice-baked loaded potatoes are an underrated appetizer or dinner—they’re full of cheesy, creamy goodness and they're seriously comforting if your favorite team isn’t winning the big game. 

Transform this football snack into a party-ready treat by stuffing sharp cheddar cheese, chopped chives, and a sprinkling of bacon into your mini potatoes. Once you’ve got your loaded potato you’re ready for the first round of baking. 

Once you take them out of the oven, your spuds should be nice and tender—the second round of baking is to ensure the delectable filling has puffed up and the cheese gets its melty finish and golden brown texture. 

4. Parmesan Chicken Strips

You can't host a football party without a plateful of kickin’ chicken! Sports and chicken wings are the gold standard, but these baked chicken strips are creating unexpected flavors and textures that might just steal the show. 

Gently coat the chicken with coarsely ground pita chips and a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese. The cheese bakes into the bird for a sharp depth of flavor and the pita chips provide a great crunch to each bite. 

It’s a great snack for the kids, the football team, and the entire family. Serve with ranch, barbecue sauce, or your favorite aioli and you’ve got a Super Bowl appetizer worthy of champions.

5. Bean & Cheese Taquitos

Your Super Bowl party needs a snack that you can enjoy before, during, and after the game—or even during halftime when you try to channel your inner Joe Montana. 

These bean and cheese taquitos are a great handheld snack filled with delicious ingredients. The tortillas are crispy, the beans are tender, and the cheese is melted to perfection. It’s a snack that everyone can help prepare and your guests are sure to be running to the endzone to go back for more! 

After a quick bake in the oven in place of frying the tortillas, top with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and fill with your favorite protein if you need a heartier snack. These homemade taquitos will be the MVP of your party and are guaranteed to disappear in an instant.
