Tailgating Recipe Round-Up

Posted by Mandy on September 20th, 2012. Filed under: Recipe Round-Ups.

It’s no secret to my readers on this blog that I’m from the South. And it’s also no secret that most Southerners are die-hard college football fans. Well, that’s the one exception to the Southern rule here in this house. It’s not that we don’t like college football. It’s just that we don’t really prefer one team over the other since neither my hubby nor I attended any of the big universities around here. We’re still big football fans though so don’t think I don’t make my fair share of yummy goodies to munch on while watching a big game.

So you’ve probably guessed by now that because we aren’t big college football fans, we also don’t tailgate. It’s not that I don’t think it would be fun. Food and drinks everywhere, just for the munching while you wait to watch a big game. Sounds pretty dang awesome to me. But I’ve never actually been, so I feel kind of silly writing this post. I have no idea what an actual tailgate is really like (do you have access to electricity? Grills? What’s it actually like?), so I could be way off on this Round-Up of recipes, but I’m just gonna select a few of my favorite football munchie foods and share with you all. Hopefully this round-up will give you some fresh ideas to take to your next football gathering. And hopefully sometime before next year I’ll actually get to go to a tailgate so I’ll know more of what recipes would work best to take along. Anybody want me to tag along with ya? :)

No football gathering is complete without dips. These are a few of my favorites:

Restaurant Style Salsa (http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=555)

No Southern get-together is complete without the ever-famous cream cheese/pepper jelly combo (http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=688)

Another Southern tradition, Chess Squares (http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=459)

Who doesn’t love brownies? (http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=1298)

And finally a sweet dip that one blog reader in particular says she takes to every tailgate! (http://www.thesupermomchef.com/?p=1327)

Now I’m ready to go to a tailgate! If these recipes don’t bring everyone to your tent, then nothing will (except maybe some free alcohol!) Try some of these for your next gathering and I promise you’ll have a bunch of fans full and ready for the game!

    Great blog! Sorry to change the subject, but, since Nashville is a big up and coming city, I’m looking for a great Nashville sushi restaurant or Japanese restaurant. Have you read any recent buzz? There’s a new one called Nomzilla Sushi Et Cetera, but I’ve only seen a few reviews. Here’s the address of this new Nashville Japanese Restaurant, 1201 Villa Place, Suite 101 Nashville, TN 37212 – (615) 268-1424. Thoughts? Thanks!

  2. 2 day diet lingzhi pills

    I began getting as shortly as i recieved. The very first 12 days I had been taking two pills a day. I had been extremely sick to my tummy while in the mornings but my hunger was immediately curbed! i realized at day 12 which i recieved 60 products for just a 60 day supply so I need to not be using 2. when I changed to one tablet a day all the morning "sickness’ stopped nevertheless the benefits of appetite surpession did not. I have misplaced 10 in fewer than 60 days. I’ve not begun doing work out yet, but I will now, the 10 lbs . motivates me. I really like this supplement. not only am i not consuming as a lot but when i do take in I am not over ingesting, and i couldnt if i wanted to, im just not hungry!
