Super Bowl recipes: Green Bay beer brats vs. Pittsburgh pierogies

super-bowl-recipes.jpgThe Super Bowl has the potential to be a pretty entertaining game on Sunday (Feb. 6). The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers will be duking it out on the field, and if you so choose you can stage your own Green Bay-Pittsburgh matchup on your plate.

Both cities have some football-ready foods that go hand in hand with celebrating their teams. You can't go wrong with anything cheese-related for the Packers (we really like the sound of this fondue recipe), and Pittsburghers are fond of ham barbecue -- which is exactly what it sounds like.

But if you really want to get the spirit of the Packers and Steelers, we'd suggest preparing some bratwurst, simmered in beer and then grilled, to represent Green Bay and pierogies, delicious Eastern European dumplings, for the Pittsburgh flavor. Recipes for both are after the jump. The pierogies are somewhat labor-intensive, but they can be made ahead of time.
