It goes without saying that the Super Bowl is dedicated to cheering on your favorite team, finding your favorite commercial and of course, eating all your favorite couch foods. Aside from the game itself, Super Bowl foods are what some people look forward to the most. There are always the classic comfort foods that are sure to be loved by all like nachos, artichoke dip, or even pigs in a blanket. With these new, creative snacks, your Super Bowl is guaranteed to be a hit, no matter what happens in the game. 

Everyone loves nachos. Whether it’s just nacho cheese sauce or loaded with everything you can imagine, nachos are party food that are sure to be a hit. Or even chili and chicken wings, which Bri Jones (12) says “make the game so much more enjoyable,” these are guaranteed hits but you still need a few snacks and small bites that are new to the table. 

Here are some of the best, new Super Bowl eats:

  1. French Toast Pigs in a Blanket 

I bet that this is one you’ve never heard of. It’s perfect for a Super Bowl brunch or even during the game and is super easy to make! First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the sausage links on the baking sheet and bake until lightly brown. After about 10 minutes, remove and set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees F. While the sausage links are cooling, whisk 6 eggs, ¾ cup of milk, ¼ cup of granulated sugar, ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Taking your 12 slices of bread, cut the pieces into a 2-by-4-inch rectangle and flatten slightly. Roll each piece of bread around the sausage links, pressing firmly to ensure that it stays. Transfer to the bowl with the egg mixture and soak for a few minutes. Next, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large, non-stick skillet that is over medium heat. Once the butter begins to brown, add 6 of the bread wrapped sausage links and cook, turning until golden brown, for about 5 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the skillet to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat until all pieces are cooked.Once finished, dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with maple syrup.

     2. Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out about 14 ounces of pizza dough on a surface covered with all-purpose flour. Roll until its very large and in a large rectangle shape, about 11 by 18 inches. Take your ½ cup of marinara sauce and spread on the dough, leaving about an inch bored all around. Follow up by sprinkling with ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese, ½ teaspoon of dried oregano, and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt. Take 10 slices of mozzarella cheese and evenly layer on top along with sliced pepperoni, halved. Next, unwrap the 4 sticks of string cheese and arrange in a line on one long edge of the dough. On that same side, start rolling the dough as tightly as possible so that the string cheese is the middle of the roll. Pinch the seam of the dough to seal tight and flip, seam-side down. Slice the roll into 1-inch pieces and place the rolls, cut side up, in a 12-inch round baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Take the remaining pieces of pepperoni into the folds of the pizza rolls. Allow for the rolls to rise at room temperature for 20 minutes before placing in the oven. Lastly, bake the rolls until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbly, for about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with a side of extra marinara sauce for dipping.
