When it comes to Super Bowl Sunday, everyone knows the commercials and the food are usually better than the game. I’ve hosted off and on over the years and this year I’m hosting and can’t wait to get creative in the kitchen.
I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I’ll be sharing post Super Bowl that I’m creating for the first time. If you want the inside scoop on those recipes be sure to follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our email list below.
In the meantime here are 3 finger foods you can easily use Big Lou’s Onion Sauce to punch up the flavor and get creative.
NY Style Pigs In a Blanket with Spicy Caramelized Onions
When it’s grilling season, the first craving I have is for some Big Lou’s Spicy Onions on a grass fed hot dog with mustard. Check out the recipe for our NY Style Hot Dogs here.
For super bowl, we took that idea and made it a finger food using cocktail franks. You know, those little hot dogs that you lose count of after eating 2 or 3 and the next thing you know the entire platter is gone!

2. Cut puff pastry into equal sized rectangles or triangles (dealers choice) up to 1 inch max width.
3. Spread a teaspoon of Big Lou’s Spicy Onion Sauce on each piece of puff pastry
4. Place hot dog on puff pasty and roll
5. OPTIONAL: Brush with egg wash
Serve these NY Style Pigs in a Blanket along with some spicy or yellow mustard for dipping. Dipping in more spicy onion sauce is also encouraged.
Caramelized Onion Dip Inspired by Siggis Yogurt
Chip and dip is the cornerstone of any party, especially Super Bowl. If you grew up like I did you probably remember those mystery packets filled with who knows what that you could turn into an instant dip in minutes.
Times are a changin and fresh homemade dip is not only healthier, but news flash, more flavorful. From hummus to homemade guacamole, chip and dip options are a plenty. I was yearning for some onion dip and then I stumbled upon this caramelized onion dip from Siggis Yogurt.
How to Make Caramelized Onion DIp
1 3/4 cups siggi’s 0% Plain yogurt
1/4 cup Primal Kitchen mayonnaise
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup parsley, roughly chopped
1/4 cup Big Lou’s Garlic Onion Sauce
Brie, Mushroom & Caramelized Onion Bites
Mushroom and onions are a classic pair that go hand in hand. If you want to class up you super bowl party feast, this finger food will not disappoint, especially with the addition of brie cheese.
The creaminess of the brie, the sweetness of the onions and the earthiness of the mushrooms hits all the points on the delicious scale. This one has a little more prep involved since you’ll have to saute the mushrooms but at least you won’t have any crying over the onions!
