It’s almost that time of year again, the first Sunday of February and with that, the year’s biggest night of football: the Super Bowl. This year will mark the forty-ninth Super Bowl game to determine the champion of the National Football League and will take place at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona where the New England Patriots will face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 6:30PM EST.
But the Super Bowl is more than just a game. For many, it is yet another reason to maintain their edge against the competition, and on the opposite end, it’s also the last football game many will have to watch with their significant other, at least until the next season. Others will only turn on the TV for the halftime show and/or the commercials, but it is without a doubt that everyone is in it for the food. So gather your friends, pick a team to cheer for, and enjoy these delicious recipes.
