Superbowl Sunday is like Thanksgiving for me. I love to cook for a holiday and the Superbowl is one of the top 5 foodie holidays for me. Instead of an entree and sides, its a day dedicated to small bites and appetizers.
I got a note today from Brock Mastersons with their Superbowl Party pack. They listed all their favorites bundled up for one price. Meatballs, stuffed mushrooms, veggie tray, charcuterie, mac and cheese and a bacon wrapped shrimp app. Feeds 6 fans and all for less than $90.00
That has me thinking. This Sunday it’s just me and the missus and she hates when I call her the missus, how would I spend $90 for the perfect Superbowl meal.
This is how I would roll:
Wings from Lock 27 Centerville
I’ve written about these and declared them the best in Dayton. My favorite in Dayton. Smoked. Deep fried. Peach habanero sauce. Ridiculously perfect. $14
Spinach Crab Dip from Christopher’s in Kettering
This Spin dip is next level. Spinach artichoke dip, claw crabmeat and baked, served with fried naan bread chips. $9
Chips and Dip. From the Trolley Stop in the Oregon District
Maybe COVID has me jonesing for patio time and beer at Trolley at sunset on warm summer’s evening. Or that dip is just a wonder of culinary creativity. Either way. Its on the menu along with their nacho’s. The chorizo and queso blanco, not the veggie kind. $5.5 for Mike Sell’s and dip, $8.5 for the Macho Nachos.
So we’ve knocked out wings and plenty of dips and chips and we are only $38 dollars in.
Adding a pizza to this menu would be gluttonous, but what if one of our college kids showed up with a friend? Be prepared, that’s the Boy Scout way. So I’d go with Junior’s Pizza on Wilmington Pike in Kettering. His pizza is a Dayton style, but heftier like Ron’s in Miamisburg or Joe’s in Riverside. I keep it classy, Pepperoni and extra cheese.
A medium two topping only sets you back $15, so add the fried pickles. They can’t be beat for $6.50 more.
We are at $60 and the only thing missing are beverages and some veggies.
Kettering’s Eudora Brewing Company is how we wrap this up.
I like the Bees Knees. Its kinda hoppy. Not too strong and has a slight sweet finish and I like that. A growler for two, the hummus plate and the fabulous Grape and Goat salad comes in at about $30.
That’s a good day and a menu to please all ages, all palates and we got some veggies in there too.
