Super Bowl Sunday!
Can you believe it? The Super Bowl is TOMORROW! We can hardly believe it ourselves. In fact, while flying on a plane the other day. A man asked me which team I was rooting for this weekend. It took me a second to figure out what he was talking about but now that I remember, I am soooo excited….GO BRONCOS!
We thought it only appropriate to post about great appetizers to serve at a Super Bowl Party. Our guess is you have already been invited to a gazillion Super Bowl Party’s or maybe you are hosting one yourself…so we hope this is helpful and inspiring.
Naturally, the first place that we looked for inspiration was Pinterest (only the best Social Media site for just about everything). Here are our top favorites!

- Open can of breadsticks and starting with one breadstick at a time thread dough then meatball. Repeat the process with 2 more meatballs alternating dough-meatball, ending with dough. Make sure to spread dough and meatballs away from each other by about ¼”, so the meatballs bake through and the dough has room to expand.
- Bake for 20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through. Remove from oven and ssprinkle each skewer with 1-2 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese. Place back in oven for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
