Let’s face it; one of the greatest parts of watching the Super Bowl, aside from the commercials, is feasting on a delicious and well thought out spread of your favourite snacks.

Because of this, food planning is one of the most important, if not the most important aspect of your Super Bowl party. Good food means happy guests, high
energy and a memorable experience you can only hope to match next year.

But it shouldn’t be a hassle.

Just because you’re hosting or organizing an epic game experience for your friends, it doesn’t mean you should be spending your time behind the scenes prepping food options.

So what are the easiest food options for this year’s Super Bowl?

Why not let someone else do the work?

There are many special food-related occasions throughout the year. Valentine’s Day means chocolate, Halloween is candy-filled, and Super Bowl? It’s all about chicken wings. And with delicious local options like Wacky Wings, it’s easy to deliver on this time-honoured big game ritual.

Gathering up your football crew and heading out to your local wing joint takes the headache out of planning your Super Bowl party. Why not take a break from the responsibility of hosting, skip the cooking and the mess, and have a fun night out?

The Super Bowl is about watching the game, cheering with friends and family, and well – just enjoying the experience.

This year take advantage of game time specials like Wacky Wings’, The Big Game 1 Cent Wings along with a number of different meal combos. And as an added bonus this Super Bowl, Wacky Wings will also be giving away a ton of NFL swag including coolers, team scarves and footballs.

Let someone else handle food so you focus on the game. For more information on Wacky Wings’ Big Game specials, click here or call (705) 253-2000.

Cater to your guests with something you know they’ll love

Trying to host the ultimate Super Bowl party but don’t really feel like cooking? Don’t worry; you’re not the only one.

Super Bowl gatherings are part dinner party and part sports event. The key to having a successful party for the big game is finding the perfect balance between being a football fan and super host.

Luckily there are delicious local take-out options that make things easy and deliver on quality.

Why not keep things simple and full of choices your guests will want by having your ultimate Super Bowl party catered? Restaurants like Aurora’s are offering to customize your party with their local favourites and new dishes; Pazzo-Pane, Chiff-Choff, Potato Skins, Con Queso, Cheese Sticks, and of course, their famous pizza.

Serve up tailgate food that everyone will be talking about

It’s true. The food you prepare for your hosted Super Bowl party should be delicious. But it should also be simple to create so you’re spending more time
watching the game and less time in the kitchen

The secret to serving up hassle-free food that your guests will be raving about is choosing quality ingredients and meal planning with options that can be prepared ahead of time.

One of the best ways to kick off the game with your guests is offering a charcuterie and cheese board. Local butcher shop and all-round supplier of everything delicious, Paesano Foods has a wide selection of in-house made sausages, a unique assortment of imported cheeses and the accompaniments that will impress all of your food fans.

Just prepare ahead of time and serve when ready.

For the second half, create a no-fuss steak sandwich that you don’t have to be a Philly fan to enjoy. Paesano’s offers fast cooking, seasoned, tender Joe Greco steaks that you can grill in minutes. Simply sauté peppers and mushrooms ahead of time and put out some buns with sliced provolone cheese to create a tasty steak sandwich station.

Visit the Paesano Foods at 305 Wellington St. West for more delicious Super Bowl meal ideas or call 705-949- 0116 to pre-order your food for the big game.
