Grilled Superbowl Snacks Recipes

Bacon Wrapped Veggie Spirals

Adding a few healthful vegetables to the feeding frenzy can be accomplished by camouflaging them in a wrap of bacon. For this recipe, you'll need...

  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Peppers, sweet and/or hot
  • Cauliflower
  • Red onion
  • Thick sliced bacon
  • Sour cream
  • Cayenne pepper

Slice the veggies into pencil-sized sticks, about three inches long. Cut the bacon strips in half. Wrap a half slice of bacon around a few of the veggie sticks, and secure with a toothpick. Grill over medium heat about five minutes per side, or until the bacon just starts to become crispy.

Combine the sour cream with a little cayenne pepper, and serve a dollop alongside the Spirals for dipping.

Half Time Cheesy Jalapenos

These grilled Superbowl snacks may be a little spicy for some. Be sure to have plenty of cold drinks available to keep things cooled down. The ingredient list is short for this one.

  • 20 large Jalapeno peppers
  • One-half pound shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Slice the pepper in half, lengthways. Don't remove the stem ends, but do remove the seeds and core. Fill the pepper halves with cheese, place on an oiled baking sheet, and grill using medium high indirect heat until the peppers have softened.

TIP---The longer the peppers cook, and the softer they become, the less intense the heat will be.

BBQ Bombs

The easiest way to make these is to use ready-to-eat shredded barbecue meat. But for the better bombs, use some tender smoked brisket or pulled pork left over from that last barbecue.

  • One half pound shredded beef or pork
  • Two ten-count canned biscuits
  • Barbecue sauce

Start preheating the grill to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the biscuits from the cans and cut in half. Shape the halves into rounds (kind of like mini-pizzas) about 1/8 inch thick.

Combine the shredded meat with a little barbecue sauce... homemade barbecue sauce is best. Place a tablespoon or so of the meat onto the center of the biscuit round. Fold the dough around the shredded bbq meat, forming a little pocket. Pinch the edges together.

Place the BBQ bombs on a lightly greased baking sheet. Pop the baking sheet into the preheated grill. Use the indirect grilling method...the burner directly under the pan needs to be off, and the burner(s) to the side(s) are left on.

Grill-bake for 10 minutes, or until the biscuit dough has lightly browned. Serve with extra bbq sauce for dipping.

Serve these grilled Superbowl snacks to your Superbowl party guests and you'll have a housefull of happy fans.
