Complete recipe guide to throwing a tailgating party, and an entire menu of delicious food!
After the Super Bowl, I count down the days to football season. Even pre-season. I’ll take whatever I can get. I count down to the start of college football too. That’s really where my heart is. I love NFL football these days, but that wasn’t always the case. I’m a college football fan first and foremost, and I’m so excited for the season to kick off in a few weeks.
I went to a big college football school, and tailgating was a huge part of that. When I was in school, we’d get up at 7am to start tailgating before noon games. I still can’t believe we did that, but we were not the only ones. There were tens of thousands of people tailgating early in the morning. You’d look around the parking lot and surrounding areas of the stadium, and it was a sea of RVs and portable grills. People were listening to music, enjoying good food, and playing games.
To celebrate the start of football season, I’ve teamed up with some of my blogging friends to put together the ultimate tailgating party menu! This has you totally covered. A dozen different recipes perfect for tailgating! Salads, side dishes, desserts, EVERYTHING you need, it’s all right there. Happy tailgating!
