Super bowl food questions
Ok it has been decided that we will host a Super Bowl party here and I I need help with some food. I will most likely order a few pizzas. (yes the menu has changed!) Since I live with a Ravens fan I want to do Baltimore style snacks like a yummy faux crab dip and any thing else someone can suggestm thyat may have a Baltimore theme. Anyone have a yummy faux crab dip? Had the stupid Eagles not let me down the menu would be so much easier, but well, maybe the Flyers, Union, Wings or Phillies will come through for me. Maybe. One can hope can't she?
I don't remember if your husband is a vegetarian or not. I would definately do some meat with a veggie option if you are having meat company. Pizza just doesn't really cut it for the big game. I am doing a slaw shmorg (standard slaw, jicama and apple slaw, and Israeli purple cabbage slaw). It will accompany the sliders we have. You could do veggie and meat sliders. We are also doing three franks in blanks (standard, spicy with spicy sausages and spicy mustard, and frank in a pretzel which I found in the Ami magazine kosher recipe section) and the usual chicken wontons ( from the kosher pallette). The chicken wontons and dipping sauce are big hits. If you are staying veg, do hot fresh garlic knots using pizza dough and Chumus, thick marinara dipping sauces. People need to dip. How about a falafel station? Home made falafel balls rock (osem).
My husband is not a vegitarian nor a Baltimoron, just a HUGE Baltimore fan and a casual Philadelphia fan:) Since the EAGES let us down (again) HE is the one celebrating.
I may do pizza simply because pizza is around the corner and I have plans all afternoon - it is just easier. I have been thinking of kosher deli platters from Acme too - who knows. I just know that I will be arriving here with some of my guests that afternoon, so easy is the key!
I too live with a Ravens fan and I can tell you he would HORRIFIED at the mere thought of faux crab anything. A true Baltimoron will insist on only the real deal, hon.
One our menu is:
hot crab dip
mini crab cakes
Old bay steamed shrimp
pit beef sandwiches
snacks type food-pretzels, chips etc
And of course Natty Boh beer (nasty stuff!)
Making polpettine from a reference to an Italian cookbook I found from a Cholent discussion on CH
Will also make wings, blooming onions (we have the contraption), fried chicken, perhaps some corn dogs.
Would love to try and make the sweet potato fritters that they serve at Mike's Bistro, if anyone has any ideas.
I'm a Niners fan, so there will be no Baltimore-oriented food at my Super Bowl party, but if you MUST I can say that wedged potatoes roasted with Old Bay would be tasty.
My menu will have picnic-type salads and the following:

Sweet potato-corn fritters with garlic sauce: http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/2012/07/sweet-potato-corn-cakes-with-garlic.html
Root-beer baked beans (subbing some liquid smoke and extra oil for bacon: http://www.pepper.ph/why-boiling-bean...
Does anyone know of a delicious, kosher (does not need to be CY) blue cheese sauce/dressing?
Soooo many options for wings.
And if pizza must be served, you can always make BBQ chicken pizza.
After hosting (too many!) superbowls, I realized its much easier to serve meat. A lot can be prepared in advance and warmed up on the big day. Lots of meat items can be served room temp
