Tailgating: Gameday Eats!

Tailgating: Gameday Eats!

August 02, 2023

Tailgating is a uniquely American pastime. It’s a great combo: grilled food, cold drinks, friends, fans and your favorite team, all rolled up into one awesome day. If you’ve never had a tailgate party (or even if you have), it takes some planning, know-how, and most importantly, recipes.

To make your tailgate party memorable, think about your guest list and what types of food they’ll enjoy most. Is this a finger food crowd, or are they cheering, “Go gourmet!” instead? Luckily for you, tailgate recipes are plentiful, and you can find them all over the internet. Here are just a few suggestions:

  • The supermarket chain Publix has a great collection of tailgate recipes, like Potato Skin Bites and Taco Chicken Roll-Ups.
  • Find classic easy recipes from All Recipes, like Baked Hawaiian Sandwiches and Chicken Nacho Dip.
  • If barbecue is more your style, check out Barbecue Bible for standouts like Beer Can Chicken and Cheese-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Peppers.
  • You can always count on Food & WIne for some interesting ideas, like Three-Cheese Queso Nachos and Bacon-Bourbon Brownies with Pecans.
  • At Savoring the Good, you can find Taco Egg Rolls and Mexican Corn Dip.
  • Finally, the folks over at Southern Living have pulled together their favorites, like Bacon Wrapped Smokies and Bacon-Pimiento Guacamole.
