Tailgating Foods That Score a Touchdown

Football season means tailgates and watch parties – and, that means delicious food. Tired of being asked to bring ice and plates because you don’t have a signature dish? Or, looking to change things up and try something new this year? We’ve got you covered with some tailgate-approved bites that will score big with your friends and family.

Breakfast of Champions

Rise and shine, it is kickoff time! Nothing will get you going better than a Maple Bacon Muffin, the perfect morning bite for tailgating. Jess from On Sugar Mountain knew just what she was doing when she paired bacon with maple syrup in these mouth-watering muffins. Get the recipe and preheat the oven, you’ll need multiple batches of these! 


Mighty Meatball

Game day calls for savory lunch dishes, too. This recipe might seem “naughty, but is nice” – at least that is how Kristin from Iowa Girl Eatsdescribes her Feta-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. These meatballs are sure to be a winner with hungry fans during the big game. This simple recipe gives you the flavor of buffalo wings with out the mess (well, if you use toothpicks that is)! 

A Savory Cupcake

A taco and a cupcake met and fell into a baking pan. Voila!  The Girl Who Ate Everything’s taco cupcake was born. Wonton wrappers hold the tasty fillings, which include refried beans, taco meat, cheese, and whatever else you may desire. Finish off with your favorite taco toppings like tomatoes, onions and cilantro and you’ll have a great snack that’s as easy to transport, as it is to eat.


Crunch Time

Down to the final seconds, and the score is tied? You’ll need something to munch on to ease your nerves and this Caramel Apple Popcorn fromGrandbaby Cakes is the ticket! A sweet twist on an old standard will satisfy your taste buds and make for the perfect game day snack whether your at the game or on the couch.
