Last year I was talking to my niece Kara about the Super Bowl, and suddenly I felt a heavy dose of food blogger guilt. You see, watching football is most definitely not my thing, and I realize there’s not a lot of football-watching food on my site. But Kara had the great idea of helping out Kalyn’s Kitchen readers by putting together a round-up of Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Super Bowl Appetizer Recipes, and I thought that sounded like a good plan!
I started with a list of the kinds of things people might like to eat at a Super Bowl party, but once I decided all recipes had to be both low-carb and gluten-free I took chili and dishes with low-carb tortillas off the list. Then I removed lettuce wraps, because they’re so popular they have an entire round-up post of their own.
What I ended up with was a pretty big collection of low-carb and Super Bowl-friendly appetizer recipes that you can eat with your fingers, including cold nibbles and bites, warm nibbles and bites, meatballs, foods on a stick, and dips. And when I realized I had more than 50 recipes, I told myself to stop. But I couldn’t resist making the title say 50+, just so I can add more good things and for Super Bowl 2018 this post has been updated with even more delicious ideas for Super Bowl Food! But hey, you can never have too many good low-carb Super Bowl appetizer recipes, right?
