The words ‘Super Bowl’ brings a lot of things to mind. Aside from the obvious, football, I always think of gatherings, friends, and incredible food. While some foods are classic football party fare and will never go out of style, sometimes a little menu reinvention is necessary. A staple in our house, chowder is a weekly request during the cold winter months. Paired with a thick crusty bread for dipping, this recipe often needs doubling as even my 9 year old goes back for extra heaping servings! This recipe is easily tweaked for clam or shrimp lovers, too.
For the football party season, we’ve combined the comforts of our favorite warm and hearty winter food with a fun, miniature twist.
While it does take a bit of time to prepare, this recipe for Salmon Chowder Mini Bread Bowls will wow your Superbowl party guests and have them smacking their lips looking for more. The best part about bread bowls is the ease of cleanup, and then of course the chowder-soaked bread that ensues as it soaks in and you get to eat your dish at the end!
In case you prefer the non-salmon version, these bread bowls can be filled with our yummy vegetarian chili. You can also adapt the recipe and replace the salmon with corn or another seafood if you prefer.
Serve scoops of chowder in the mini bread bowls, sit back, and enjoy the silence of everyone digging in.
