In a few short days, all your Super Bowl 2018 dreams will come to fruition. Philadelphia Eagles fans everywhere will be glued to their television sets to root for their favorite team and, of course, eat all the game day foods. And while the usual suspects are expected to make an appearance — pizza, nachos, chili, chips and dips — there are some Philly-specific Super Bowl recipes if you're an Eagles fan that'll make you feel like you're right there on the field and in the middle of all that action.
Now, I must make it perfectly clear that I'm not dissing basic Super Bowl dishes. It's common knowledge that they always have a place at the table (and in your mouth). I mean, everyone loves your uncle's 7-layer dip and your best friend's spicy wings. But if you're going to watch the big game, and the Eagles are your team, why not celebrate by offering a unique spin on your favorite dishes from Philadelphia? The City of Brotherly Love is famous for its gooey cheesesteaks, stout beers, perfectly crafted cream cheese, and handmade calzones, so I say indulge. On Super Bowl Sunday, you either go big or go home.
So if you bleed green, throw some of these delicious Eagles-inspired recipes on the table for a crowd-pleasing feast. Your guests don't have to love football to dig the recipes below.
