Be the Winning Host With Super Bowl Sliders
Sliders are expected at a Super Bowl party, and there are endless ways to dress them up, mix them up, and serve them with flair. Choose a Super Bowl slider spread that features all your favorite classics and a couple of exciting new twists on this party staple.
Blend Two Classics With Meatball Marinara Sliders
The perfect marriage of two game day classics, meatball marinara sliders are sure to be a hit with your guests. Apply your general meatball marinara sandwich steps to a slider-sized bun. Layer an Italian meatball (it's easy when you use frozen pre-made meatballs), jarred marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese on a Hawaiian roll you've split in half crosswise. Brush the top of your buns with garlic butter to amp up the Italian flavors of your meatball and sauce.
Put a two-pound bag of frozen, precooked Italian meatballs and a 23 to 25-ounce jar of marinara sauce in a slow cooker. Cover and turn on low in the morning before the game. At game time, brush the tops of Hawaiian rolls with a garlic butter and heat them in the oven according to package instructions. Slice crosswise to create buns, and your low-effort sliders are ready to go. Serve topped with shredded mozzarella, if desired.
Please Your Game Day Crowd With Philly Cheesesteak Sliders
Another blending of two classic sandwiches, Philly cheesesteak sliders are sure to be a welcome twist in your party food line up. Go for a classic style with the best Philly cheesesteak sliders ever. These gooey, melty minis are loaded with flavors sure to please hungry fans.
Embrace the Mess With Sloppy Joe Sliders
Take your classic sloppy Joe filling and add to a slider-sized roll, cheese optional, for a nostalgic take on your game day spread. Guests will love the nod to dinners past, and you'll love the ease of assembly.
Want to take them to the next level? Jazz them up by topping the sloppy Joes with a little something extra. Add some heat by topping with sliced pepperoncini, give them crunch with a few corn chips crumbled over the filling, or add temperature and texture contrast by spooning corn salad right on top of the meat mixture.
Give Guests the Flavor They've Waited for With Buffalo Chicken Sliders
No Super Bowl party is complete without a winning buffalo chicken appetizer. Make your sliders the talk of the party with an easy buffalo chicken sliders recipe. If you're a fan of the classic buffalo/bleu cheese combo, add some bleu cheese crumbles right on top of the chicken just before baking. Reinforce the flavors and make them just a bit fancy by sticking a bleu cheese stuffed olive on top of the slider with a wooden skewer.

Crack chicken is the perfect filling for your game day sliders, and it can come together in minutes.

Fancy 'em up and add some acidity to break up the rich filling by skewering a gherkin on top of the bun.
