A hoard of feverish football fans are heading to your house is a little over a week. Do you feel calm and collected?

If not, that’s okay. Most people get a bit frazzled at the thought of preparing food for a large group.

Bacon

My game plan is to make a few show-stopping super bowl snacks, then fill in with easy store-bought items like chips and salsa or veggies and dip.

That way, the dishes I make really stand out, but I’m not preparing days in advance.

Celery

I always try to provide super bowl snacks that are loaded with comforting flavors, yet presented in a unique way.

Buffalo Chicken

Like these little Buffalo Chicken Bites.

You can’t very well have a Super Bowl Party without buffalo chicken, but you can steer clear of sticky wings and red fingerprints on the sofa.

Buffalo Chicken Bites wrap up all the goodness of buffalo wings, in neat little packages to keep your fingers clean.

I whipped up an easy creamy buffalo chicken filling with hot wing sauce, celery, onions, and cream cheese. Then scooped it into Athens Mini Fillo Shells.

Before serving, I simply sprinkled crumbled blue cheese, bacon, and chopped celery leaves over the top. Voila!

I love using Athens Mini Fillo Shells for super bowl snacks like this. They are pre-baked, so you can serve them straight out of the package, but you can also pop them in the oven for bubbly-hot appetizers and desserts.

    These look so yummy! Do you think you could mix in the bacon and blue cheese? I’m not very fiddly when I’m cooking, and arranging little bacon and cheese pieces on top seems a bit time-consuming :)
