Super Bowl Spotlight: the Green Bay Packers

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers who just won their way into Super Bowl XLV! (That's #45 for the non-math majors)

The Packers are the NFL's second oldest franchise and have an incredibly loyal following of Cheeseheads. Calling them Cheeseheads started as an insult, but was soon embraced by the fans. Despite having the smallest local market, the Packers are one of the most popular teams in the league and have sold out every game at Lambeau Field since 1960.

How do the Packers and their fans survive all those cold weather games in Green Bay? With some of the best rib-sticking food in the country, that's how. As you'd expect from Cheeseheads, the Packers love their cheese, especially Colby, a Wisconsin invention, and Cheddar. Wisconsin also has strong German roots, so no visit to Green Bay would be complete without some tasty Bratwurst washed down with a fresh beer. For dessert, they eat plenty of Danish Kringle, a sweet pastry filled with anything from raspberry to apple to chocolate.

To find the best recipes in honor of Green Bay's Super Bowl run, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found some great options celebrating the best of Wisconsin.
