Super Bowl Sunday Sandwich Bar

super bowl

I love football. I really do, and I always have. But, I love food even more. So, how wonderful is Super Bowl Sunday; the beautiful marriage of football and food?

When you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, the meal you serve should be just as important as the game itself (and the commercials!) Menus that are buffet style with lots of serving options are the best bets: Chili, Nacho and Taco bars, and meals made of appetizers are always big hits. But today, I’m going to share my new favorite Build Your Own meal…

The Sandwich Bar

My family loves going to delis and sub shops, because everyone can order exactly what they want, and even picky Junior can find something he likes. With the sandwich bar, everyone can come up with their favorite combination…there are endless choices! If you’d rather do a simple sandwich bar, pick just one or two different options for the bread, meat and cheeses. Everyone can still build their own, and it will be easier on your wallet.

Bread
A good sandwich begins with good bread. Make sure your bread is as fresh as possible, and preferably purchased from a bakery or deli.
French Rolls
Sourdough
Sliced White
Whole Wheat
Croissants
Gluten Free Bread


Meat

Roast Beef
Turkey (various types if desired)
Ham
Bacon
Italian Meats (Pepperoni, Salami, Capicola, Soppraseta)
Meatballs


Cheese (sliced thin)
Swiss
Cheddar
Pepper Jack
American
Provolone
Mozzarella

Veggies
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Onions (sliced, red and white)
Banana Peppers (in a jar in the condiment aisle)
Bell Peppers (sliced, green and red)
Jalapenos
Pickles
Avocado Slices
Cucumber
Roasted Red Peppers

Spreads
Mayonnaise
Mustard (Yellow, Deli, and Dijon)
Horseradish Sauce (in the refrigerated section)
Cherry Pepper Relish (in a jar in the condiment aisle)
Mashed Avocado


Finishing Touches

Crushed Oregano
Red Wine Vinegar mixed with Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Hmmmm. I can’t decide between a Turkey-Bacon-Avocado Sandwich on Sourdough with Pepper Jack, Lettuce, Red Onion, Cherry Pepper Relish, and Oil and Vinegar OR a Meatball Sandwich on a French Roll with Provolone. Oh, wait, maybe a Roast Beef with Cheddar, Green Bell Peppers, Pickles, Jalapenos and Deli Mustard on Whole Wheat.

I. Just. Can’t. Decide. But, boy am I hungry! Yay Football Food!

  1. What a great idea for Super Bowl Sunday, and something anyone, even with limited cooking skills, can do. We have “Deli Night” about once every two months when I don’t feel like cooking for the family for whatever reason and never thought to extend this idea to hosting Super Bowl Sunday.

    Thank you for opening my eyes to the fact that this annual tradition can be simple but tasty, too!
