MeatEater’s 10 Best Super Bowl Recipes

You don’t have to love sports to enjoy a good Super Bowl party. While many gatherings offer thawed petit fumes and uninspiring ham and cheese platters, we prefer to serve wild game for the Big Game. If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to check out these 10 recipes. We have something for everyone, whether your freezer is stocked with venison, waterfowl, upland bird, small game, fish, reptile or whatever you might have harvested this year.

Venison Skyline Chile (for Bengals fans)
This Cincinnati-inspired dish is unlike any chili you’ve probably ever eaten. With unique ingredients like allspice, cloves, and chocolate, it’s just bolder than the chili you’ll find in other parts of the country. If your Super Bowl party includes Bengals fans, they’ll appreciate this nod to their team’s local “delicacy.” Get the recipe here.

The best fish tacos

Best Fish Tacos (For Rams Fans)
These fish tacos are so good you’ll think they rolled out of a food truck window in Santa Monica. Although this dish calls for perch or walleye, you can use boneless fillets of any firm-fleshed fish. We won’t blame you if you use this recipe as an excuse to get out the boat or the ice auger on Saturday. Get the recipe here.

Deer negimaki

Deer negimaki
We’ve had our fix of bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers on Super Bowl nights. If you’re ready for a change with a new bite of vegetables swaddled in meat, try the venison negimaki instead. This sweet and savory appetizer with Japanese roots is a great way to impress a crowd with just a roast venison or two. Get the recipe here.


3 ingredient meatballs
Cancel your weekly trip to Ikea, no need for little spheres of frozen mystery meat this year. These meatballs only require three ingredients – yes, three – so you really have no excuse not to whip up a batch for whatever party you’re attending or hosting. Brush them with your favorite sauce, stick them with a bunch of toothpicks, and when there’s only one left, tackle for possession like your team depended on it. Get the recipe here.

coiled up squirrel

Parker Hall’s famous squirrel rollups
Do you remember the time a squirrel got butt in the Kent State vs Louisville game in 2017? Or another who ran for a 40-yard touchdown during FIU against Marshall last year? Pay homage to these college greats by wrapping decadent, slow-cooked squirrel meat, peppers, onions and cream cheese in the most indulgent container ever: the crescent roll. Don’t be surprised if the kids eat them all before halftime. Get the recipe here.

fish dip

Smoked fish dip
This recipe comes from our good friend Jesse Griffiths, who doesn’t see a lot of trout or frozen lakes where he lives and runs restaurants in Texas. However, those of us who live in hard water country often find ourselves with heaps of firm-fleshed trout and arctic char at this time of year that can receive no greater honor than hanging in a smokehouse for a few hours and then collapse into a delicious dip. Let’s be honest: where there’s smoked fish in a buffet line, every other dish has its work cut out to stand above it. Jesse used white bass for his article, but almost any species of fish will work, especially oily or tastier ones. Save walleye and perch for tacos and use your lake trout, pike or almost any saltwater fish for this creamy spread. Get the recipe here.

turkey nuggets

Copycat Chic-fil-A Turkey Nuggets
Love ’em or hate ’em, but fast food chains sure know how to mass-produce flavors everyone will love. Take note of this if you’re trying to be strong on game day. Chick-fil-A takes popular dishes to an even higher level, which is why we’ve removed their Chicken Nuggets Recipe for Wild Birds. Tip: The little sugar in the breadcrumbs caramelizes when fried to give it that extra pop. A pickle juice brine beforehand never hurt either.

venison queso dip

Smoked Deer Queso Dip
Queso dip is easy, accessible and hard to stop eating. Take this opportunity to step up your queso game with hearty golden chunks of venison and a smoky flavor that will comfort you even if your team doesn’t bring back the big W. This make-it-and-forget-it recipe uses a smokehouse so you won’t don’t need to take up valuable stovetop or slow cooker space this Sunday. Get the recipe here.

duck tartare

Duck Tartar and Avocado
If you are currently experiencing “duck pressure” with the end of waterfowl season, this one is for you. Prepare this simple recipe and impress your friends with something a little out of the ordinary. It’s basically pico de gallo meat – serve it with fries, a toasted baguette, crackers and plenty of blind tales. Get the recipe here.

flamin hot pheasant

Flaming Pheasant Sticks
Wings are a classic game day dish. But, if you didn’t think they could ever improve, did you consider adding Cheetos? In this recipe, marinating the pheasant in a hot sauce before coating it with a crispy Flamin’ Hot Cheeto breading results in a spicy and succulent meat with a perfectly crispy coating. Don’t forget the ranch, blue cheese, carrots and celery. Get the recipe here.
