Super Bowl LIII is three days away, and whether you're rooting for the Patriots or the Rams (or just love the commercials), a proper feast is essential. If you're on the keto diet, you won't have to get too inventive to come up with ketogenic versions of traditional game-day fare. Fried, cheesy, and meat-heavy foods are fair game (pun intended) on the high-fat, low-carb keto diet.
For a dish that'll stand out in any spread, check out these keto Super Bowl appetizer and dessert recipes.

Bake anything in a skillet with a layer of cheese on top and it's almost guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. By the looks of this cabbage and sausage dish, it's no exception to that rule. It clocks in at 29 grams of fat, 22 grams of protein, and 7 net carbs per serving.

If you're not sure whether your crowd is more buffalo or BBQ, play it safe and coat your wings in a five-spice dry rub. This recipe includes a creamy garlic dip (yum), but you could also go with ranch, blue cheese, or a mayo-based dip and it'll still be keto-friendly.

Few things are more disappointing than overbaking a dessert until it's dry and brittle. This recipe emphasizes baking the blondies until they're just set so you'll end up with melty, fudgy bars. (And these other keto dessert recipes will make your mouth just as happy.)

Slow cooker chili is always an easy Super Bowl route, but using the Instant Pot expedites the process. (Use the "keep warm" setting and it'll stay heated throughout the game.) This recipe trades beans for bacon and it's dairy-free, paleo, and Whole30 compliant. (Pssst: Here's the difference between a slow cooker and an instant pot.)

Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

There are plenty of riffs on cauliflower and cheese as a mac and cheese substitute, but this one seems like a standout. The combination of thick sauce, pancetta for fatty flavor, and crispy bits from crushed pork rinds is something we can get behind.

Easy Keto Pizza Dip Appetizer

Every football party needs pizza in some form. If you don't feel like attempting a low-carb crust (LBH, they're never the same), make this pizza dip instead. True meat lovers will be content to eat it with just a fork, but you can also supply homemade pepperoni chips, asparagus, or other keto-approved dippers. (Or—gasp!—bread slices for the non-keto crew.)
