E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES! Okay so maybe I am not the biggest football fan out there but tailgate food always gets me a little more into the game! For some reason when I watch football, I don’t watch my diet. I tend to indulge in a little more food than I normally would, a little heavier food than I normally eat and maybe a beer or two more than I would normally drink. But that’s one of the fun things about tailgating, right?? Here are some of my favorite tailgate recipes!
PIGS IN BLANKET- the most popular finger food of all time (in my opinion). Simply wrap small hot dogs in crescent rolls and bake until golden brown (usually 350 degrees for 8-10 min).
BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP – This is a great one to make a bunch and freeze them. You can simply pull them out of your freezer and throw it in the oven for a crowd favorite! Find the recipe below…
GRAPE JELLY MEATBALLS – These may sound gross…until you eat one. Good luck stopping at one! Do you know what makes this even better? It’s done in a crockpot! Yup, set it and forget it…Now for that second beer….
