How many appetizers do I need?
How do you estimate how many appetizers you'll need for your super bowl party?
If you're hosting a snacks only party, plan to serve about to 8-12 appetizers per person. If you're also serving a big main course, like burgers, barbecue, hot dogs, or pizza, you can decrease that amount slightly to 6 appetizers per person.

Tips for a stress-free party
- Write out a grocery list (or print the recipes and take them with you). Shop a few days ahead of time and stick to your list.
- Offer a variety of appetizers to suit the dietary needs of your guests. Include gluten-free and vegan options if needed.
- Don't make all the appetizers yourself. A mix of homemade and store-bought appetizers takes some stress off the host. Pre-made cheese trays, vegetables, and mixed nuts are great store-bought options.
- Make some appetizers the day before. Cheese balls, cold dips, and deviled eggs can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.
