Ready to enjoy some football, food and great commercials for Super Bowl XLIV? (That’s Super Bowl 44 for those of you who don’t remember your Roman numerals.) The big game will be here soon which means it’s time to prepare the game day menu. Don’t worry about being fancy, but you will want some tasty treats in case the half-time show leaves something to be desired. Here are some cheap Super Bowl snacks and side dishes that will help you score big points with guests, plus deals on everything from team jerseys to game tickets can be scored over at the UltimateCoupons' Super Bowl Sunday Coupons page!


Potato Skins - Potatoes are one of the cheapest foods you can buy. Buy a few big baking potatoes, scrub them up and poke them with a fork. Bake them at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. You’ll know when they’re done when you can easily pierce them with a fork. Let the potatoes cool enough so you don’t burn your fingerprints off when handling them. Cut the spuds lengthwise and scoop out the pulp. Replace the pulp with your favorite ingredients—think butter, salt, onion powder and cheese. Bake them for a few more minutes and serve up with some sour cream or blue cheese dressing.


Quesadillas - Cheese is pretty much one of the major food groups of any Super Bowl party. Whip up some quesadillas for your guests by layering some cheese in between two tortillas and zapping it in the microwave. You can even save $1 on a package of Mission tortillas by heading to MissionMenus.com and giving them your email address. Serve these up with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.


Sloppy Joes - Pull out your crock pot and put it to good use for your Super Bowl party. Simply throw in a few ingredients and in a matter of minutes you’ll be ready to serve up Sloppy Joes. Check out some easy recipes at AllRecipes.com. Plus they’ll stay hot throughout the entire game no matter how late it goes.


Pizza - Save yourself some hassle and get pizza delivered. There are lots of money saving pizza coupons available. Pizza Inn has four printable coupons including one that will get you three medium one-topping pizzas for $17.99. Godfather’s Pizza also offers lots of printable coupons, including a deal that will take $4 off the purchase of any Jumbo Pizza. For Pizza Hut coupons, just enter your address and they’ll show you what deals are available in your area. Remember to tip your delivery person well since Super Bowl Sunday is sure to be a crazy night.
