The football game may be the main attraction of the Super Bowl, but the tasty bites come right after.
Celebrities went all out with party food for the big game on Sunday, February 12. Jessie James Decker, for example, baked cookies in the shape of a ball. “It looked like a soccer ball, but now it’s all melted,” the reality star, 34, said in an Instagram Story video, referring to the frosting on her dessert. “It looked really good. However. It’s a cookie and it’s going to be delicious.”
According to a celebrity chef Guy Fieri, the key to a good Super Bowl menu is variety. “I’m big for [the] menu variety. I love a real eclectic menu,” Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives the host, 55, exclusively told Us Weekly in January. “I want to be able to eat a lot [or] to eat a little. I want to be able to have all different kinds of flavors.”
That means including all kinds of finger foods and other snacks that are easy to grab with toothpicks. “I don’t want it to be just one theme, like, ‘We just do cold cuts,'” he explained. “I’ll have a section for cold meats, a section for meatballs, some chicken and some sauce and [a] cheese section, but the key is to make a solid foundation. And bread is probably one of the things they get the most like, ‘Oh yeah, have some bread.’ No, take the King’s Hawaiian [and] do this the right way.”
This year, however, Guy’s Grocery Games host didn’t have a Super Bowl party — because he was at the game instead. The restaurateur is a Las Vegas Raiders fan, but was still excited to watch the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. “I want a great game,” he told us last month. “It’s going to be fun.”
Although Fieri’s team has been out of contention this year, other celebrities haven’t been shy about sharing their love for the Chiefs or Eagles. Kevin Hartwho was born and raised in Philadelphia, claimed he bought the real eagle for $16.5 million to show his love for his favorite NFL team.
“I believe that when you work hard, you should treat yourself,” the comedian, 43, said in an Instagram video on Tuesday, February 7. “And that’s exactly what I did. Ladies and gentlemen, I got a little carried away. I went and bought an eagle.”
The camera then cuts to a wildlife ranger holding the bird, which Hart said he named Jalen Hurts in honor of the Eagles quarterback. “Jalen, you live here now,” the Ride Along actor told the animal as he mixed a cocktail he named Screaming Eagle. “Welcome home.”
