Tailgate Food

Tailgate Food

Football season is back! At our house we are excited. We basically watch way to much football, including all the Dallas Cowboys games and all the Texas Tech University games. And, this year, our son is playing football. He is a starting wide receiver for the 8th grade team.

One of our favorite things about football season is tailgating and tailgate food! We are living up around Portland, Oregon right now, and have considered going to a Ducks game just so we can tailgate. Since we can’t really go tailgating at a Cowboys game or a Texas Tech game.

Here’s a round up of my favorite tailgate foods. Just click on the recipe name to be taken to the recipe. You will notice that they are basically all appetizers. I find that finger foods are usually the easiest for everyone to eat at a tailgate party. Stacking food on kabobs is so easy you can have your kids do it.

    Can’t say I’ve tailgated a lot since the Billikens don’t have football, but the one time my husband took me to a Huskers game, we grilled beer brats – one of my fave foods. During my next tailgate experience, I will definitely be making that spicy green dip.

    I had never tried Buffalo Chicken Dip until about 4 years ago — where had it been all my life!??!?? That’s some fabulous stuff right there! Serve with carrots and celery as well as pita chips or even Chicken in a Biskit crackers.
