Going potluck is an easy way to save time and money on a Super Bowl party. If you are hosting, invite everyone to bring their favorite Super Bowl appetizer, or a finger food dessert. If you are attending a Super Bowl party, be sure to offer to bring something, even if you just pick up a bag of chips on sale.
Last year, I went to a potluck Super Bowl party where everyone brought their favorite soup – a Soup-er Bowl party. We kept the soups in our Crockpots so we everyone could eat warm soup when they pleased. With the freezing cold weather, this sounds like an even better idea this year! We also had rolls and biscuits, drinks, a couple of appetizers, and chocolate-frosted rice krispie treats for dessert.
