Our best Super Bowl recipes deliver big flavor for a smaller watch party – The Washington Post

  • Limit your party to people you live with, or if you’re able, project the game onto a wall in an outdoor area where everyone can practice appropriate social distancing.
  • If game-day classics are your thing, consider conducting a food swap. Make a designated spot for friends to drop off and pick up portions of certain dishes, so that everyone gets a variety without having to cook all day.
  • Or, if you’ve caught the cooking bug and want to experiment, this smaller gathering can serve as a focus group as you try out new recipes.
  • Made too much food? That’s okay. Remember, plenty of game-watching fare can be repurposed for future meals; you can freeze leftover chili for later, and turn those extra ribs into tacos or enchiladas.
  • Select recipes, like snack mixes and mini pizzas, that are easy to scale down. Most of The Post’s recipes feature a scaling button to help you do just that. Keep in mind, however, that when scaling a recipe, cooking times and temperatures, pan sizes and seasonings may be affected, so adjust accordingly. (Also, amounts listed in the directions will not reflect the changes made to ingredient amounts.)

Here is a batch of Super Bowl eats that can easily be scaled down for Super Bowl LV. You’ll want to bookmark them now, too, for next year when we can — we hope
