If you're not planning on feasting this Sunday, change your agenda. Whether you're a sports fan or not, the Super Bowl is the most American occasion after Thanksgiving to throw caution to the wind and stuff yourself silly. Here at HuffPost Taste, we've been preparing accordingly: collecting recipes for everything you could want, from wings to nachos to sliders; taste-testing beer from each team's home state; and finding a new chip to replace your Doritos habit. We've also been going down Instagram rabbit holes, crushing on everything Super Bowl.
After getting lost in nacho photos and burger food porn, we found our way to chips and dip heaven before coming up for air. Then we went back in for ideas on the beer we should drink on Sunday and recipes that would feed a crowd. If you need inspiration for a Super Bowl party menu, Instagram's got you covered.
We rounded up 15 Instagram accounts to follow for recipe ideas and for just generally getting in the mood for game day. They'll get you hungry leading up to Sunday and will keep you pretty much glued to your phone well after the Super Bowl has come and gone.
For recipe inspiration, look no further than:
Gaby Dalkin, from the food blog What's Gaby Cooking, is sharing a bunch of great recipes and snack ideas for feeding a crowd. We're talking nacho bars, Parmesan pretzel bites, spinach bacon artichoke dip and fiesta fries (pictured above).
Tiegan over at Half Baked Harvest, one of our all-time favorite food blogs, has a predictably amazing Instagram account as well. Want mouthwatering takes on classic recipes? You won't be able to take your eyes off Half Baked Harvest... but try to, just long enough to cook one of her standout recipes, like the Big Popper Hot Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Grilled Cheese pictured above.
Whitney Bond, the blogger behind Little Leopard Book, has got you covered on fun recipes for the Super Bowl and she's sharing all the photos to prove it. We'd like both her Mini Buffalo Chicken Calzones and her Buffalo Chicken Meatball Subs, please. We always love a good football-shaped dish too: see the Football Shaped Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwiches above.
The epic food blog Southern Fatty obviously has an epic Instagram account, which happens to be ideal for recipes for the Super Bowl. The Buffalo Blue Tots pictured above kind of say it all... that was, until Southern Fatty posted a photo of Bacon Buffalo Blue Mac-n-Cheese Rolls. Check out the account for a photo of those, and thank us later.
There will be wings:
If you want to feast your eyes on some wings before they get all over your hands and face and disappear into your gut, check out Buffalo Wild Wings' account. Trust us.
If you need further wing inspiration, Brooklyn's Talde serves some of the best wings in the country, and there's proof on the restaurant's Instagram account. Made with peanuts and house-made buttermilk ranch, these Kung Pao Chicken Wings are not your average wings.
And never forget the nachos. Never:
Brooklyn's Pork Slope's Instagram account will fulfill your nacho dreams and then some. (There may or may not be photos of breakfast sandwiches with a side of tater tots and spicy chicken nuggets on the account as well.)
For straight up meat porn, check out:
This meat makes us melt. Grill doctor Doug Pickering, owner of D.W.P. Grill MD, knows what's up. Go see for yourself once you peel your eyes away from this ribeye.
Get your fill of burgers at Instagram account Burger Days. Just don't get too full, because you have to save room for the real thing.
Don't forget the ketchup:
Since most things you'll be eating on Sunday would do well with a little, or a lot of, ketchup, get a load of artisinal ketchup company Sir Kensington's Instagram account. It will make you put the Heinz down forever. It's not all about ketchup either; it's just all about everything you could ever want to eat, ever.
Wash all that down with some beer:
That's some good-looking beer. This account gets an A in content and an A+ in Instagram account names.
Want to stay up to date on all things craft beer? Drink Craft Beer's account is a good place to start.
So is Brew Bokeh's account.
If you want some food with that beer, Justine Sulia of the food blog Cooking And Beer has got you covered.
And if all these Instagram accounts still haven't gotten your head in the game, here's one last account that will basically transport you the stadium:
See? It'll take you anywhere.
