Depending on how the Super Bowl turns out each year and the ability of a person to host a party during the game, the food could be an afterthought or the talk of the party (either for being good or bad). No one wants to have the Super Bowl party with the bad food.
Over at SBNation.com, check out all the recipes they offer to make your Super Bowl party a success. Now, many of the recipes include bacon in them -- because, who doesn't like bacon? Although bacon-wrapped dates aren't exactly my idea of Super Bowl food, it might just be yours.
Of course, even with many of these great recipes, their success depends on how well one can follow instructions. Don't disappoint your guests.
