Super Bowl Sandwiches and Sliders

By: Victoria Phillips
Cajun Shrimp Po Boy

Believe it or not, a sandwich might just be the perfect game-day food. It's, generally speaking, pretty uncomplicated, allows for a limitless number of meat/veggie/spread combinations, and comes in a handy, hand-held, nothing-left-over format.

With Super Bowl coming up this Sunday, we're pulling out the best Cooking Channel has to offer between two buns.

Try Kelsey Nixon’s Cajun Shrimp Po’ Boys (pictured above) for down-home fried shrimp with a Creole kick, or make her Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. Dunk them in a Blue Cheese Aioli for traditional chicken wing flavor with a twist.


Whip up Dave Lieberman’s Philly Cheesesteaks with Melted Fontina and Sautéed Red Onions in 30 minutes or less. Simple yet classic, you can’t go wrong with this sandwich staple.

Pear Panini

Giada’s Taleggio and Pear Panini may look dainty, but we guarantee game-day guests will go wild for each bite oozing with decadent Taleggio cheese.

Duck Confit Sliders

Cook like an Iron Chef when you make Michael Symon’s Duck Confit Sliders. Inspired by Vietnamese Banh-Mi sandwiches, these small bites are topped with pickled carrots and fresh cilantro leaves.

Swiss Cheeseburger Sliders

Short on time? Keep it quick with Aida Mollenkamp’s Swiss Cheeseburger Sliders. Let guests mix-and-match with a toppings bar of add-ons like crisp bacon, grilled pineapple slices, hummus, BBQ sauce and chive sour cream.
