Planning a Super Bowl party? If you’re like any of us here at Fine Cooking, the food’s much more important than the game, so the menu’s got to be just right.

Most important, if you’re hosting both Steelers and Packers fans, is to avoid showing any food-favoritism. For the Cheeseheads, of course, you’ve got your Beer-Simmered Brats, plus Beer and Cheddar Fondue with pretzels for dipping.

In honor of the Steelers, how about the Roethlis-burger, created by Peppi’s sandwich shop in Pittsburgh (and re-created here on the Accidental Hedonist blog). It’s not so much a burger as it is a cheesesteak with ground beef and Italian sausage standing in for the steak. Oh, and with scrambled eggs (you know, just so you don’t go home hungry). If that gives you a heart attack just looking at it, why not ketchup-glazed meatloaf, in honor of Heinz Field. On the side, serve a batch of Pittsburgh-favorite Potato Pierogis. Or see the Good. Food. Stories blog for more Pittsburgh food.

Or avoid a partisan fight with completely apolitical picks. Some of our favorites? Fried Chicken, Slow-Cooker Pulled-Pork Sandwiches, Warm Chipotle Black Bean Dip, and Bittersweet S’mores Bars.

What are you serving for your Super Bowl party?

    Definitely having a super bowl party there are two things that make it snappy, food being the essence of the character of the event and the equipment being the stadium. I always cook a lot of food since I usually am supplying delicious appetizers to very large testosterone energized men. They obviously enjoy eating as much as they enjoy yelling at the TV.
