My family is a little NFL-crazy, so the week before Super Bowl Sunday is filled with anticipation. On game day, we invite over family and friends so we can all watch (and eat!) together. While most Super Bowl food spreads are pretty decadent, I like to create a lighter spread in my home. The goal is to keep things healthy without sacrificing on flavor. After all, the Super Bowl is a celebration that deserves equally celebratory food!
When putting together my menu for a kosher Superbowl Sunday, I usually pick foods that are communal; meaning, we can easily gather around a central plate and serve ourselves on smaller plates as we watch the game. Ideally the food should taste amazing, but not pack on the pounds. It’s a good idea to have some nosh-worthy snacks on the table to nibble as the game progresses. Also, you want dishes that don’t keep you stuck in the kitchen for hours. The goal is to create a satisfying meal using simple finger foods that are tasty and filling, while not packing on the pounds the way chips, dip, and kosher hotdogs do.
