Super Bowl Party Mac & Cheese & Lasagna Bar

Are you planning to host a big Super Bowl party? I’ve got the perfect tablescape and a few recipe ideas for you and your Super Bowl Party! If you’re hosting a bunch of people, you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen cooking because you’ll miss the big game and all the commercials! Instead, why not simply heat up and serve a game of  Mac & Cheese vs. Lasagna as a Super Bowl Party Mac & Cheese & Lasagna Bar? They look adorable in single-serving cups set-up against each other on the “field.” Nestle-Big-Game-Big-Party-Legal-Miss-Sunshine-17Check out that field! Nestle Big Game Big Party - Legal Miss SunshineNestle Big Game Big Party - Legal Miss SunshineI purchased frozen party size Lasagna and Macaroni & Cheese. They are super simple to heat up and portion prior to the party. When I was ready to start cooking I simply followed the directions on the box to warm up both the lasagna and macaroni & cheese. They have a bit of a time difference, so be sure to start the lasagna before the mac & cheese and set a timer. Once cooked, I spooned single-serving portions into 8 oz. Ball Mason jars with Astroturf cozies. Just be careful when spooning the lasagna to make sure you keep the layers intact and be sure to spoon the crispy, browned macaroni and cheese onto the top, it’s the best part!

But instead of simply serving the  Macaroni & Cheese by itself, why not include a Toppings Bar to allow your guests to customize their meal?Nestle Big Game Big Party - Legal Miss SunshineI decided to serve the following:

  • Bacon
  • Green Onion
  • Salsa
  • Tomato
  • Cilantro

But other ideas include:

  • Broccoli
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Crackers
  • Mushrooms
  • Chives

Want to make a Super Bowl Party tablescape like mine? I stayed with a limited color palette of yellow, green, and gold, but you can use your favorite team’s colors! I used a roll of chalkboard paper runner as my table runner. I simply drew on yard lines with chalk and a ruler. I used Spanish moss in various colors in small pots with pennant flags as added florals to my centerpiece. The football vase and football trophy were both DIYs, you can find the instructions here.

To set up the Macaroni & Cheese vs. Lasagna “game”, I simply used baked pepperonis and sliced bell peppers to create the X’s and O’s to replicate a game playbook. I made cozies for the beers and mason jars using Astroturf that can be purchased by the foot at any large home improvement store. Simply cut a piece to size, wrap around your jar and use your glue gun and glue sticks to secure. Warning, they take more glue than you would think, so make sure you start with enough. And I filled the balloons right before the party with my BalloonTime helium tank.

I’ve shared my Super Bowl Party table and recipe ideas with you. I’d love to hear about yours! Leave a comment below and let me know how you plan to watch the Super Bowl!
