Here are seven ridiculously simple recipes that are sure to please everyone at your Super Bowl party.

Peel & slice 3 russet potatoes into 1/4″ slices. Drizzle 1/4 cup of olive oil over the slices, then spread them in a layer on a cookie sheet. Roast in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 18-24 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown around the edges. Toss with parmesan, bacon bits, and chopped parsely if desired. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.
2. 2-minute White Bean Dip. Drain 1 (15 oz.) can of white Northern beans, then dump the beans into a food processor with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 1 clove of garlic until pureed. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve with warm pieces of pita or soft flour tortillas.
3. Easy Pizza Puffs. Everyone loves pizza. Everyone loves these easy little pizza puffs even more. If you don’t have pepperoni, no problem! Just use sharp cheddar cheese in the recipe and you’ll have a batch of delicious cheese puffs in no time at all!

4. Deviled Eggs. Boil a dozen eggs in a large, covered pot full of water for 10 minutes over high heat. Turn off the heat and allow the eggs to sit for 5 additional minutes, then drain the water and cover the eggs completely with ice (this step will allow you to easily peel the eggs). Peel the eggs, slice them in half lengthwise, and carefully pop the yolks into a medium bowl. Mix all of the yolks together with 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of pickle relish, 1 tablespoon finely diced onions, & salt and pepper to taste until fluffy. Spoon the mixture back into the center of each egg white. Sprinkle lightly with paprika before serving.
In a small bowl, mix together 1 small carton strawberry yogurt and 1 8 (oz.) carton of whipped topping. Stir until smooth. Serve with sliced red & green apples.
6. Homemade Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn. This simple recipe requires popcorn kernels, salt, sugar, and olive oil. Just four easy ingredients and you’ll have a pot full of popcorn that tastes like it’s really been cooked in a kettle!
In a large pot, stir together 1/4 cup of light olive oil, 1 cup popcorn kernels, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 tablespoon salt. Cover tightly with a lid and place on the stovetop over low heat. Allow the popcorn to heat up, shaking the pot back and forth every minute or so until you hear popping sounds. Listen carefully for the popping to slow down toward the end of the process. Remove from heat and allow all kernels to finish popping before inverting into a large bowl & serving the popcorn to your party goers!
7. Tailgate Monte Cristo Sandwiches. These bite-sized appetizers are made extra special when served with warmed strawberry jam. Don’t be decived by the odd ingredient combination. Your guests will be begging you for more!
Place a slice of ham and slice of pepperjack cheese between two slices of white bread. In a large pie plate, whisk together 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk. Dip both sides of the sandwich in the egg mixture, then fry the sandwich on a hot griddle (as you would french toast). Once both sides of the sandwich have been cooked until golden brown, transfer to a plate, cut into triangles with a pizza cutter, sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar, and serve with warm strawberry jam for dipping.
