Whether you are having a Penguins watching party or kicking back and viewing the game at home, the food that you eat makes the game experience. Here is a sample menu for delicious party foods.
Pierogies, the potato and cheese dough-filled crescents, are a must-have for your game day menu. Stick with the traditional filling or mix things up with meat or spinach and feta cheese stuffing. Garnish the dumplings with butter, onions or sour cream on the side.
Next, cook up kielbasa and sauerkraut for a hearty addition to the meal. Make a chipped ham hockey puck sandwich for a festive entre. Bake bread in the shape of a large circle to represent a hockey puck. Cut the bread in half horizontally, then, add ham, cheese, lettuce and tomato. Slice the puck into wedges and serve with condiments.
You can’t go wrong with black and gold gobs for dessert, a twist on the traditional treat using gold instead of white icing. For beverages, stock your refrigerator with beer, pop and lemonade. Don’t forget munchies for when the game gets tense. Potato chips, pretzels, peanuts and popcorn will help alleviate the stress of power plays and shootouts. Let’s go Pens!
