Since I am originally from Pittsburgh and a Steelers fan I will be making my favorite that is a Pittsburgh recipe. Ham barbecues. Coleslaw, deviled eggs and of course a black and gold cake, yellow cake with fudge frosting.Everything can be made the day before, the barbecues will go in the crockpot to keep them warm, that way I can enjoy the fun and everyone can fix a plate when they are hungry.

Here is the recipe for the barbecues from All recipes. It is the same as my aunt always made.

Just for fun I thought I would post the link to a very popular thread last year. Super Bowl Party Menu Ideas

In the same school of thought...I did a burrito bar:

Black beans
refried beans
sour cream
grilled onions, red/green pepper
corn salsa

I also had chips and fruit.

And lots of beer...

Default Case's Super Bowl Plan

Right now, my plan is Italian sausage cooked and sliced up to put toothpicks in. I haven't decided what to put with it on the side (maybe the Freschetta stuffed breadsticks with marinara -- it is a strong possibility and they are delicious). Also thinking about some Planters mixed nuts.

I'm hosting... and I still haven't decided! In the past, I've always made too much food, but you can always use it for leftovers.
I'll probably go with store-bought buffalo wings, chips/salsa/nachos (whatever you want to call it!), maybe pizza, and lots of ice cold beer!
