Super Bowl Party Picks: For Saints Fans
I've got lots of family in New Orleans, so we're pulling hard for the Saints to bring home their first-ever Super Bowl victory. I'll be watching at home in New York, but my Big Easy-inspired Super Bowl party menu is all set, courtesy of Food Network Magazine.
The January/February issue has dozens of great game day recipes, plus a Mardi Gras-themed feast. No matter where your football loyalties lie, it's hard to deny that New Orleans has the culinary advantage! Here's my plan for a delicious Super Bowl spread:
Muffuletta Potato Skins: The next best thing to the original sandwich from the French Quarter's Central Grocery.
Pimiento Cheese Dip (#9 of 50 Dips): It's popular throughout the South, but always reminds me of my visits to Louisiana.
New Orleans Cocktails: Sazeracs will class up our football party (yes, there will also be beer!)
Bourbon Praline Cake: A festive dessert to break out after the Saints win!
Colts fans: Check back in with the FN Dish later this week for our Indy-themed menu picks.
