5 Recipe Ideas for Super Bowl Sunday

Sweet-Hot Ketchup and Jalapeño Mustard recipes

Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner, so we’re planning our game day spread. For big get-togethers, we love hosting a pot luck, that way each guest can bring their own favorite and no one person is saddled with all of the hosting responsibilities. Below are our favorite ideas for bringing along a simple, but crowd-pleasing dish.

Spice up Some Sauces

If you’re not much of chef, we love the idea of fancy-ing up a few sauces (these recipes are easy, we promise!), wrapping them in some pretty mason jars with labels, and then stopping by the grocery store to pick up a box of fried chicken. Chicken is a guaranteed crowd pleaser, and some special sauces like Sweet-Hot Ketchup (above) and Jalapeño Mustard (above), are a delightful surprise to the other partygoers!

      Hi Wonderly,
      Unfortunately the trays featured in this blogpost are unavailable. They were originally from Ballard Designs. You can, however, find some similar options here.
      Hope that helps,
