For me, Super Bowl Sunday is all about the food. The game is on in the background, but my favorite part is sampling all the yummy treats. These Super Bowl make ahead meals will get you through the busy week leading up to the big game. Plus, I’ve shared some great recipes for your Super Bowl party.
Superbowl Make Ahead Meals
Normally, I have no interest in football. Usually, I just go to Super Bowl parties for the food. However, this year, we’re having a party at our house because the Eagles are playing. My father-in-law has been waiting 70 years for them to win a Super Bowl. We’ll see if they can finally pull it off.
These easy and delicious make ahead meals will get us through the school week leading up to Sunday. That way, I will have time during the evenings to clean my house and decorate for the party.
Monday – Turkey Stroganoff
Ground turkey was on sale at the grocery store this weekend, so I picked up a 3-pound pack. I used half of it to make the Turkey Stroganoff from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I added some frozen peas to this recipe and put it over egg noodles. It was so easy to make, and it smells delicious! Now, I just need to pop it in the oven when I get home from work on Monday.
Tuesday – Chicken Tetrazzini
My kids love spaghetti, but I get tired of it with pasta sauce. I decided to try the Chicken Tetrazzini from Lil’ Luna. The only thing I didn’t like about the recipe was the use of canned cream of chicken soup. I don’t like canned soups, so I made my own using the Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup recipe from Pinch of Yum. I make a big batch of it and freeze it. That way, I can just pull one out, thaw it, and use it in any casserole.
Wednesday – Unstuffed Green Peppers
I needed to find another recipe to use the rest of the ground turkey. I discovered the Stuffed Green Peppers with Brown Rice, Italian Sausage, and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen. The recipe sounded great, but I changed it a little bit to make it easier to make ahead of time. I cut the peppers and just threw them into the turkey mixture. I sprinkled the mozzarella cheese over the top so it will melt when I bake it Wednesday night.
I popped a little bit into the microwave to take a picture today, and I couldn’t resist trying it. Yum! I can’t wait to eat more Wednesday night!
Thursday – Teriyaki Chicken Casserole
My family loves Chinese food, but we’ve been trying to cut back on going out to eat. Eating at a restaurant and even getting take out gets really expensive. That’s why I’ve been experimenting with different Chinese recipes. The Teriyaki Chicken Casserole from Life in the Lofthouse looked just like a stir-fry I would order at the Chinese restaurant. It came together in less than 30 minutes, and it looks and tastes even better than takeout.
Friday – Bagel Pizzas
Bagels were buy one, get one free at the grocery store this weekend. Frozen bagel bites are so unhealthy, but my kids love them. I decided that Friday night we will make our own pizza bagels by topping them with sauce, cheese, and toppings. Hopefully, these will be healthier and yummier than the boxed kind.
Dessert – Football Whoopie Pies
This week’s dessert is perfect for the Superbowl! These little Football Whoopie Pies from The Baker Mama are so cute. I couldn’t make them yet, though. There’s no way they would last until next weekend! I’ll add a picture as soon as they are ready. Every guest at your Superbowl party will love them!
Sunday – Superbowl Party Recipes
I don’t have pictures of any of these recipes, because I’ll only be making them next weekend. However, I’ve make all of them before and can promise that they are delicious. Your Superbowl party will definitely be a success with these yummy treats!
Black Bean Chicken Chili from Just a Little Bite
Football Field Party Dip from Everyday Good Thinking
