Well, we didn’t get the Superbowl outcome we hoped for this year, but we still enjoyed some delicious food and fun times on game day. My friend Krysten did a little research and we created a Pittsburgh inspired feast to enjoy!
For appetizers, we had some gridiron potato dip with some yellow peppers and black chips. The dip recipe is actually an H.J. Heinz recipe, which is the title sponsor of the Steelers’ Heinz Field.
We also had some black and yellow mango black bean salsa, and homemade guacamole, which is really not Pittsburgh themed at all, but you can’t skip guacamole on game day!
For dinner, we feasted on homemade Big Macs and pierogis…
The Big Mac, the world’s most famous hamburger, was invented in Pittsburgh by McDonald’s franchise owner Jim Delligatti in 1968. Pierogis can be found in restaurants all over Pittsburgh and reflect the city’s Polish heritage.
It tasted MUCH better than a crappy McDonald’s Big Mac. For dessert, we enjoyed Klondike bars, which were invented by Pittsburgh local Sam Isaly in 1929.
And we devoured Krysten’s AMAZING chocolate covered strawberries decorated like footballs.
Eddie chose to wear his Big Ben shirt to show his Steeler’s pride.
Ah, well. We’ll get ’em next year boys!
