15 Super Bowl Recipes for Philadelphia Eagles Fans

Spend with Pennies

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard that the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs are playing in Super Bowl 2023. (Oh, you haven’t? You’re here for the food? We can respect that.) Whether you’re an Eagles diehard or just happen to be hosting a get-together, you’re going to need something to nosh on while you (maybe) watch the game. Here, our 15 favorite Philly-themed recipes for Eagles fans and snack stans alike. We’ll bring the cocktails.

1. Philly Cheesesteaks

Your Super Bowl spread would be incomplete without 'em. The recipe calls for melted provolone, but you can go full Philly by using Cheez Whiz instead.

2. Easy Homemade Soft Pretzels

These beauties are ready in 40 minutes and only require a handful of pantry staples to come together. Serve them with spicy mustard and nacho cheese for dipping.

3. Classic Baked Italian Sub Sandwiches

Finish them Philly-style with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, dried oregano, olive oil and red wine vinegar. (And consider serving them with a big Caesar salad.)

4. Loaded Baked Potato 'Chips'

These homemade chips give P.A.-based Herr’s a run for its money. Plus, they offer all the deliciousness of a loaded baked potato without filling you up too quickly.

5. Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

Consider this chocolatey delight a nod to Philly-based Tastykake's Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. (The two-ingredient fudgy glaze is just a bonus.)

6. Irish Potato Candy

Cream cheese, coconut, cinnamon…what's not to love about this Philadelphia exclusive? Did we mention you'll only need seven ingredients and not a moment of baking to prepare them?

7. Brie-Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Pretzels + melty cheese = the ultimate party food. Even picky kids at the watch party will gobble these up the moment they hit the snack table.

8. Quick and Easy Stromboli

Thanks to all those drool-worthy layers of salami, pepperoni and mozz, no one will know you used store-bought pizza dough. Your secret is safe with us.

9. Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

A delicious twist on a classic. Did you know that four states—Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania—lay claim to the original whoopie pie?

10. Apple Fritters

The perfect handheld dessert, courtesy of our Amish friends. Use tart Granny Smith apples to offset the sticky, sugary glaze.

11. Pull-Apart Italian Sub Sliders

Fancy up your Super Bowl menu with Italian olives, pepperoncini, fig preserves, prosciutto and all the grated Parmesan.

12. Mini Skillet Funnel Cakes

You can thank the Pennsylvania Dutch for your favorite carnival dessert. Take them over the top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

13. Homemade Glazed Doughnuts

Good luck having just one, friend. Fry the doughnuts twice before glazing them a la Federal Donuts.

14. Philly Cheesesteak Dip

FYI, no one can resist a warm, cheesy dip (especially when chips are involved). Add mushrooms to the bell peppers and shallots if you like them on your cheesesteaks.

15. Philly Crab Fries

Philly residents have been scarfing down Chickie's & Pete's Crabfries since 1977. Go the extra mile by dousing them in white cheddar cheese sauce before serving.
