Superbowl Feast

It’s Super Bowl 50 this weekend, which is an excuse in our house to eat like Americans all weekend! The game is being played in San Francisco between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, so we’re trying to make food from those areas.

Denver Omelette

Denver, and Colorado as a whole, doesn’t seem to have many specialty foods; certainly nothing good for watching the game with, so we’re having a Denver Omelette (basically an omelette folded over lots of veg) as a breakfast.

There were issues getting it out of the frying pan… Tasted good though!

Pimento Cornbread

Another Carolina special, using pimentos (cherry peppers) to spice up cornbread. We’ll have some cornbread with the Vinegar Chicken, and then leftovers during the game dipped in various things.

Vinegar Chicken

A North Carolina special combing lots of vinegar with lots of Jalapeno peppers – a combination we can certainly get behind in this house!

Wow this is good! We made it for the novelty of the Super Bowl, but this is going to become a regular way to cook chicken.

North Carolina Lemon Pie

A saltine cracker crust and cream topping are what makes this a North Carolina version.

Sourdough Bread

While our sourdough is very much home-grown, San Francisco sourdough is a very common variety, so we’ll chalk this up in the San Francisco column.

Yeah… I forgot to turn down the oven during the crusting stage :( I think I just about got away with it.

Sriracha Teriyaki Meatballs

Sriracha is SF, so it counts. Also flags!

Deconstructed PBJs

A traditional PBJ would be cheap plastic white bread, palm oil-laden peanut butter, and cheap seedless jam. This is much more your San Francisco hipster version: toasted sourdough, homemade plum jam, with fair trade peanut butter that’s palm oil-free.

North Carolina BBQ Sauce

A vinegar-based sauce for dipping… whatever we want into it!

Carolina Red Slaw

Oddly it uses a green cabbage, then adds ketchup to make things red!

Guacamole

Erm… we just wanted guacamole!

Pimento Cheese Dip

Cheese dip with pimentos, which seem to be Carolina’s chili of choice.

Roasted Red Pepper Mac n Cheese

Apparently adding roasted peppers makes it a Carolina mac-n-cheese.

Beer

We didn’t try very hard to find Colorado or Carolina beers, but we did find San Francisco’s Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, plus some good old Sam Adams that’s at least American. But there’s some Fursty Ferret and Stella lying around.

Results

Denver doesn’t do well in the food stakes. Carolina does much better, and we didn’t even get around to their famous pulled pork!

  1. Fantastic food. You must have been eating during the whole match, just to finish off the food. Hope you’ve recovered now. I couldn’t see the superbowl game on my TV but I listened to it on radio Five Live.
