A Super Bowl 2006 Party

Salute Both Teams With This Menu

By

There's more than just 2,500 miles separating this year's Super Bowl teams. With one team located in the Pacific Northwest where the seafood is abundant and the other team coming from the land of Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish hearty home cooking, their local cuisines couldn't be more different.

But that won't stop us from picking the best of both to create a menu for Super Bowl XL. After all, who says you can't have crab cakes and kielbasa on the same menu? Leave the rivalry to the teams and let the menu pay tribute to both sides of the U.S.A. As long as all of the dishes are easy enough to eat in front of a television, they can get along just fine on your Super Bowl XL buffet table.

Super Bowl 2006 Party Menu

Dungeness Crab Cakes - These are a popular treat in the Seattle area. Make small size patties so they become a finger food, more suitable for a Super Bowl Party.

Chicken and Corn Chowder - This is a very popular recipe in the Amish country. Serve it in mugs so that guests can move around with it, if necessary.

Baked Oysters with Bacon and Leeks - Another recipe in honor of the Seahawks' hometown. It can be made in advance except for the final bake.

Kielbasa with Cabbage - Serve this Polish dish for the Pittsburgh fans in your crowd. Allow your guests to make hearty sandwiches by accompanying this dish with crusty rolls. As a final touch, toss some french fries on your sandwich as the Pittsburgh locals like to do thanks to their popular restaurant Primanti Brothers.

Amish Soft Pretzels - A popular snack throughout the Pennsylvania region, these will be a popular snack at your Super Bowl Party.

Whoopie Pies - Despite its name, this fun, hand-held dessert is more like a large sandwich cookie and is popular among the Amish.

Kahlua Brownies - Brownies are a perfect dessert for a Super Bowl Party, and the addition of coffee to this recipe adds a touch of Seattle, known for the founding of Starbucks and the proliferation of coffee bars.

Assorted beverages including beer, soft drinks, coffee and tea.
