In Superbowl XI, played at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl in January of 1977, the Oakland Raiders beat the Minnesota Vikings 32-14. And out there in television land, fans at home were watching the game while eating snacks like these meaty treats.

Sandwich snacks for Superbowl

Sure as winter follows the fall the Superbowl, grand daddy of all football meets, comes in on the heels of all the other Bowl games. Whether you’re a devotee of these sporting clashes or merely resigned to this ritual of winter, “Bowl watching,” you can keep the fans at home content with imaginative and tasty snack foods.

Starting with convenient, canned meat spreads, rustle up sandwiches and an interesting dip for corn chips or crackers.

Super Sunday sandwich snacks are a perfect idea. Since they’ll disappear quickly, it’s a delight that they’re so easy to make.

Slices of pre-toasted French bread are spread with deviled ham and topped with a unique mixture of beer, eggs and Swiss cheese. Heat them in the oven during the pre-game warm up or wait until half-time!

Chicken and cheese melts can be prepared ahead of time also. English muffin halves provide the basis for these open-faced sandwiches. A blend of chunky chicken spread, stuffed olives, celery and onion is spread on the muffins, then covered with American cheese. A station break or time-out will provide the necessary few minutes for broiling these snacks until they’re golden and puffy.

With taco party dip, you and your-family or friends can snack without taking your eyes off the set. Simply put a bowl of this rich roast beef and chili dip and some corn chips within easy reach before the kick-off.
