Super Bowl Cook-off

Materials Needed

  • 3x5 Cards
  • Pens or pencils
  • Football goes hand in hand with chicken wings, chili, pizza, and burgers. Why not let your party guests show off their skills while you enjoy the rewards of this game by judging their fares! Less cooking for you, more variety for guests… win win.


    When you think Super Bowl, you usually don’t think cooking contest, but what better way to have a party then to get your guests to bring their best dishes! This is a easy addition to your event if you are already having a Super Bowl potluck party. You will just need to let your guests know everyone will be voting for the best dishes giving them time to cook up something good, so a bit of pre-planning is required.

    Encourage all your guests to bring their best dish and vote on who wins the “Super Bowl of party foods”. You can make it a themed cook-off by asking for just chili dishes, or chicken wings, or even their best “junk” food dish. Be creative and encourage your guests to be creative, too!

    After all the food has been served pass out 3 x 5 cards and ask everyone to vote on the top three dishes in order, explaining that no one can vote for their own offering. Assign five points for every first place vote, three for second and one for third. Add up the total and award the highest point winner as the “Super Bowl Cook-Off Champion”. Not only will your guests have a fun time voting, they will enjoy the wide variety of food they get to enjoy before the vote.
