Steelers themed Superbowl party

Am throwing a pretty small Superbowl party for some die hard Steeler fans.
So far the menu is:
Roethlisburger sliders with Heinz Ward ketchup
Stromboli (family tradition)
Vegetables and a tbd dip

I'm curious if anyone has any ideas on a dish that would be in the Pittsburgh colors (black and gold). I haven't come up with anything appetizing yet.

All help greatly appreciated!

  1. GO STEELERS!! How about Black Bean and Corn salad? Gives you the colors and is so easy to make. Can be eaten as a salad or with tortilla chips...

    1. I was going to suggest crow with mustard but, really, I fear that will be the main course at our house on The Day After. ;)

      Deviled eggs with black olive garnish.

      Black bean soup with cornbread.

      I haven't made stromboli in ages, what a great idea!

      1. Primanti Brothers inspired sandwich.......steak/beef & cheese.

          1. re: fourunder

            I was going to do this! But then it seemed like too much beefy sandwich food for the size of this group. I think I'll just have to throw a Pittsburgh themed party another time and do this one too.

          2. Pepperoni rolls.

            "The pepperoni roll is a snack popular in West Virginia and some nearby regions of the Appalachian Mountains such as Southwestern Pennsylvania..."

            I got friends that are Pittsburgh natives and they make them fresh every time I'm in town.


            As for black and gold, how about either warm or cold yellow curry chicken (or chicken salad?) with black beans or a black bean spread on crossiants or small rolls.

            Could also serve a warm yellow curry chicken dish (using Mardras yellow curry powder) over black wild rice. Yum.


            1. I once made a black and gold soup. One pot of black bean soup, and one pot of butternut squash soup, both pureed (separately, of course) with an immersion blender. You serve them simultaneously so you get an interesting design in the center of each bowl where the two soups meet. The color of the butternut squash soup was a little orange, so maybe a corn soup would be more the right color. I think the flavors of corn and black bean would be equally good. It was a big hit when I did this but really it is easy if you do the soups a day ahead. Both are simple soups and serving them is simpler than you'd think. I had two ladles but you could easily use a long-handled measuring cup.
