Football and fall go together like milk and cookies. Most enjoy the competitive nature of the game while others enjoy watching the cheerleaders or battle of the bands. But some of us are there for one reason: the food. Every weekend is a chance to show off your cooking prowess to friends and foes alike – and depending on your team’s record, the tailgate party might be the most exciting part of the afternoon.
Partying in the Parking Lot
The traditional parking lot tailgate is rife with culinary possibilities. Anything you can prepare beforehand and take with you to the party is an easy win. Try this Slow Cooker Chili or Cheddar Beer Dip.
Eating light? You don’t have to sideline your heathy eating habits. Toss this Salad in a Jar in the cooler along with everything else.
Hosting at Home
For those of you hosting a tailgate party at your house, I highly recommend these Stuffed Bell Peppers With Avocado Cream. With just a bit of prep, the peppers will cook in the oven while you set out the rest of your spread.
And don’t forget the nachos!
Can’t choose which dish to bring? As long as it includes the deliciousness of dairy, you can be sure you and your guests will score a huge win.
