Super Bowl Party Food

By Luke Leonetti

The Super Bowl is coming up, and, of course, the best way to celebrate is with a party. Obviously, you can’t have a party without some refreshments. Now, whenever I go to Super Bowl parties the food is stuff like chicken tenders, ribs, and shrimp cocktail. That stuff is fine, but this report is about making your party stand out from the crowd. So, on this edition of the Current OC, I’ll be making some food based off of the two teams playing: the Philadelphia Eagles, and the New England Patriots. Let’s get started!

Now, I’m a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, as you can see by my jersey. And every Eagles fan knows the best soda to have is a birch beer, preferably Pennsylvania Dutch. Now, I’m going to spice things up a bit and make it a Philly Phloat, with a “ph”. Pour your soda into a frozen mug about halfway, put two scoops of ice cream in there, fill it up a little more with some more soda, and there you have your Philly Phloat.

For fans of the New England Patriots, I suggest to you some New England Clam Chowder. Once you pour your soup into your pot, put it on medium to high heat, and stir occasionally until bubbly. Then, put your soup into your bowl, and don’t forget to top it off with some oyster crackers.

To finish off your hearty clam chowder, I suggest to you some Boston Creme Pie donuts.

Now the Schmitter is a famous sandwich in Philadelphia. Sold at McNally’s Tavern and Citizens Bank Park (where the Philadelphia Phillies play), this is a steak sandwich served on a kaiser roll with: extra cheese, grilled salami, tomatoes, fried onions, and “special” sauce, which I’ve interpreted as Thousand Island dressing. And it is as delicious as it sounds. First, put your beef into one side of your skillet. Put a slice of butter and your onions in the other side. Up next is your grilled salami with cheese on top. Put your salami into another pan.  Sauté your beef and onions into a frying pan for about three minutes, and grill both sides of your salami for about two. Now that you’ve grilled all of your fixings, it’s time to assemble the sandwich. Put one slice of cheese on the bottom roll, followed by the beef and the fried onions. Then a slice of tomato, and your salami, with the cheese side on bottom. Top that off with some of your special sauce and one more slice of cheese before closing the Schmitter.

Follow this tutorial, and your party is bound to be to stand out. So, get ready for some football, share your awesome food, and may the best team win.
