Super Bowl Sunday may be famous for its watered-down beer, cheese sauce and chicken wings but nowhere are these rules written in stone, so if you’ve got a flair for the finer things, we say go for it! Some reasons you may want to throw a luxury blowoutbash: 1. You’ve recently come into a small fortune and want to demonstrate to friends and family just what kind of baller you’re about to become. 2. The entirety of 2020 was an abject failure on all fronts, from start to finish, and chicken wings — as much as — simply won’t do. 3. You’re a New England Patriots fan, like me, and you need a few slightly more complicated recipes and game day food projects to distract you from Tom Brady’s post-Patriot success.
If any of the above applies to you, or if you just like the idea of stratospherically elevating your typical, we’ve assembled a pantheon of recipes to take the traditionally lowbrow, and make it all very, very highbrow. Butler not included.
Truffle mac and cheese bites
We especially like this recipe because it demands that you really embrace the lowbrow/highbrow concept in the preparation of these umami bites. You’ll not stop at that pedestrian truffle oil here. This also requires getting your hands on some actual truffle mac and cheese bites recipe. (And don’t worry, you can .), one of the most luxurious items of all, and then mixing them into the most basic of comfort foods. And then frying them in truffle oil to boot. Get the
Foie gras poppers
While your deep fryer is already hot, let’s not degrade ourselves with mere jalapeños, which are almost literally a dime a dozen. Encased in a potato nest crust, the interior decadence of foie gras will evoke the creaminess of cream cheese, except way, way more expensive. Spice it up with peppers if you like, or just feel the burn emanating from all that luxury. Get the foie gras poppers recipe.

Ibérico ham roll-ups
Jamón Ibérico is one of the most expensive cured meats on earth, made from a particular breed of Spanish or Portuguese pigs whose diet is highly controlled and consists mostly of acorns. If you’ve stashed away some metaphorical acorns of your own for this event, splurge for a whole ham, with its stand (and trotter), and display it proudly alongside these easy rolls, adorned with pine nuts. (Which, not that we’re bragging or anything, ain’t exactly cheap either.) You could also use good prosciutto like this from Eataly. Get the Ibérico ham roll-ups recipe.
I mean, hello? Pulled pork and ground beef are nice and all for lesser hosts, but we have much more expensive versions of those meats incorporated into this menu already (see above and below). But it won’t much count as a game day party without sliders, so creamy, herb-laced lobster sliders will fit the bill. Get the lobster sliders recipe.
