For some their favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday is the actual game, for others it’s the Super Bowl commercials or parties, but just about everyone can agree that food is a highlight of the game. daytime. There are the classic foods every Super Bowl party needs, fries, dips, wings and soda, but if you’re like me, you love a themed party too.
If you want to make sure your Super Bowl Sunday has food reflecting the teams playing, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
I’ve scoured the internet (so you don’t have to) to find some of the best and most unique recipes from Cincinnati and Los Angeles as the Rams and Bengals face off in Super Bowl 56.
Cincinnati themed food:
Skyline Chili is one of Cincinnati’s most popular spots, but if you can’t make it there, you can make a version of their famous one at home.
It’s so popular you might even catch players bathing in it if they win.
Cheese cones, which is a hot dog covered in chili, mustard, onions and cheese is one of their most popular dishes. You can also make their 3 ways, spaghetti topped with chili and cheese, 4 ways which add either beans or onions and 5 ways, which add both beans and onions.
German sausage is a very Cincinnati dish. The sausage combines pork, beef and spices.
Breweries and Oktoberfest are popular in the Queen City, so if you’re of legal age, pouring a beer would be Cincy-themed. Cincinnati’s favorite beer of 2021 is Geo’s Bohemian Special Brew. Wiedemann Brewing Company or “Wiedemann’s Good Beer”.
Buckeye candies, popular in Ohio, are peanut butter fudge dipped in dark chocolate. Here is a recipe for dessert.
Ohio State Foods:
Sugar cookies are their state cookie, their state fruit is tomato, and their state drink is tomato juice. If you want a touch of OH you can add some, although I’m not sure how well tomato juice will suit guests. A Bloody Mary would be a more accepted way to serve the drink.
I know what you’re thinking, this isn’t Cincinnati themed, this is Louisiana food. True, but it’s one of Joe Burrow’s favorite foods, which ties it to my Cincy theme. Burrow went to LSU, so it’s no surprise he loves okra.
- Tacos :
California, especially LA, has some delicious tacos and would be the perfect addition to any Super Bowl spread. There are tons of places to order tacos in LA, but if you’re not around, don’t worry, I have a recipe you can try.
LA often has the stereotype of being on the healthier side, with smoothie shops on every corner. There are millions of versions of smoothie recipes you can find online depending on what you like, but here’s one to get you started.
- Fried Oreos:
These are stadium food, so they would be great for bringing the stadium vibe to your home party. They are a delicious and filling dessert that anyone with a sweet tooth would enjoy. Here is a candy recipe.
- hot dog:
This is another stadium find and is a hot dog with capicola, bologna, salami and provolone, neatly wrapped in a cocoon of pizza dough.
