On Sunday February 3, the New England Patriots will play in the 53 Super Bowl, and the rest of us will eat a lot of great food — hopefully. If you're hosting, you'll want to check out these Patriot-themed Super Bowl food and drink ideas, because a little creativity in the kitchen can lead to very happy guests. While your Super Bowl party guests will likely be glad to eat anything you put in front of them, it won't hurt to lean into a theme.
Not to mention, having a theme to stick to makes the planning process a lot easier. Instead of letting your mind wander into every corner of possibility, you can reign in your attention and focus on one central theme. In this case, the them is New England, because that's where the Patriots hail from. Luckily for you and your guests, New England also happens to be a hub of some pretty delicious and exciting dishes. Here I've put together a list of a few different main courses, appetizers, drinks and desserts that you could easily find in a restaurant or pub in New England, but that are springily easy to put together from your own kitchen.
