What's on your Pittsburgh-themed Super Bowl menu?

  • l

I just got back into town here in Brooklyn, NY, but I had a couple of minutes to get some things sorted for big game.

Primanti Bros. sandwiches (hot cappy - yum)
Isaly's-style BBQ chip-chop
Klondike Bars
Snyder's Potato Chips
Iron City Beer (in the Alcoa bottles, of course)

Anyone doing anything else? I'd love to do pierogies and kielbasa/sauerkraut, but I just don't have the time today.

  1. Not really burgh themed, and we have vegans so - Black bean pierogi with enchilada sauce, white bean chili with 'soy chicken', smokey black bean soup with tofu, black and gold filled cucumber logs(hummus with chopped black olives), cheddar chipotle biscuits, assorted beers and wines.

      It's OK - if I remember correctly you're in the 'Burgh (or nearby) and you'll probably have multiple Terrible Towels flying. And black bean pierogies sound yummy!

        Smoked Salmon, Oysters on the half shell, Seafood Chowder, hot Dungeness Crab dip all served with some good local Colombia River Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a local micro brewed beer or two. OK maybe some Starbucks Coffee too. Corrected of course.

        Go SEAHAWKS !!!

          And some Swedish meatballs and lingonberries, in honor of the heritage of both Coach Holmgren and his wonderful wife and daughters. Skol! GO SEAHAWKS!!

              The gloating could be easy but at least it seems like we all had good meals!

                Thanks for being so generous. Out here the food was was great, just seemed like something was missing. Hmmm

                Congradulations. Good game.

          Oh yes - many terrible towels, fireworks, shouting neighbors etc. Have to fess up that the pierogi were from Pierogi palace in Ohio, the dough is so good if you just crisp them in a skillet - they were a hit.

          Yeah STEELERS...

        My 15 year old son is appalled that no one has come up with the obvious--"ROETHLIS-BURGERs" (spelling copied from, and appropriately changed from the back of my son's jersey).

          Oh Marion, you are quite confused. We make a mean Roethils-burger here in the OP - about 13 miles NW of the Burgh. Needless to say, it ain't the *crap* Peppi's dishes out. A 1/2 lb. of pure love.

          I'll take a few pics of the one's we are making tomorrow in honor of the opening of the 2007 Steelers Training Camp on Monday.
