New York-Inspired Foods for your Super Bowl Party

Worried about what food to serve at your Super Bowl party? Ahh, fahgettabout it! New York and New Jersey are home to some of the most delicious, iconic and so-bad-for-you-it-should-only-be-enjoyed-once-a-year foods. Which is why you MUST serve them this year at your Super Bowl party. 


Super Bowl 48 is being held at MetLife stadium for the first time, which is just a football's throw away from the Big Apple. So if you can't make it out to the East Coast for the big game, bring a little taste of the bi-state area home with these delicious New York and New Jersey delicacies

Bagels

 

Bagels are a common breakfast staple, but true New Yorkers enjoy bagels all the time, and at any time of the day. Serve some at your Super Bowl bash to pay homage to the Big Apple, complete with butter or cream cheese. Or make pizza bagels with them, like this delicious creation from Babble.

 

Pastrami Sandwich

 

One of New York City's delicacies is its pastrami sandwich, found in deli's all across the city and devoured by locals. Bring the famous sandwich to your party with this delicious Triple-Decker Pastrami Reuben Sandwich from Country Living. Cut the sandwiches up in little bites for accessible finger food for all of your guests to enjoy.

 

New York-Style Hot Dogs

 

Hot dogs are always a popular choice at sporting events. But when the biggest sporting event of the year is held in the New York area, fixing up a New York-style hot dog, complete with sauerkraut, chopped onions and spicy mustard, is the ultimate way to enjoy the Super Bowl. Use this delicious recipe from All Recipes, and make your hot dog and the New York-style fixings for everyone to enjoy.

 

New York-Style Pizza

 

Pizza is always good, but New York-style pizza has a few delicious adjustments that make it one of the city's most-loved foods: super-thin crust, sweeter sauce and big, fold-over slices are why New Yorkers love the cheesy dish. Try this recipe from Serious Eats for a big pie your guests will love to devour during the big game.

 

Mini New York Cheesecakes 

 

People come to New York for the attractions, but stay for the cheesecake. The decadent dessert is a signature for the Big Apple, and a treat that everyone loves to indulge in. Make the dish a finger food by whipping up this mini New York cheesecakes from Mini Baker.

 

Black and White Cookies

 

As Jerry Seinfeld put it, "nothing mixes better than chocolate and vanilla," and he declared that the trick to eating a black and white cookie was getting a little bit of chocolate and vanilla in each bite. This tasty treat has been a staple in New York delis for ages, but you can make your own pretty easily. Try this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker.
