Fall is in the air and that means high school, college and professional fall sports teams on the field. Whether you need an easy-to-pull together family meal before heading out to watch your high schooler compete, a transportable tailgating treat, or a buffet of crowd favorites for hosting a game-viewing party at home, we have you covered!
Get Us to the Game on Time
My brother played football in high school and I remember my mom cooking up a pot of chili or soup to feed extended family and friends prior to rushing out for the game. The key to this kind of meal is a dish that is easy to throw together that day, or make ahead, and can feed many people quickly! Here are some options.
Tackle Tailgating Like a Pro
There are some hard-core tailgaters out there, like my brother-in-law whose group of friends start the festivities at 7:00 a.m. for a 3:00 p.m. game. That gives him plenty of time to enjoy these fan favorites that are easy to make, transport and enjoy while hanging out with other fans.
Big Screen Buffet
My husband is a big sports fan and his favorite way to watch the game is from the comfort of our home in front of the big screen TV. When we invite friends over to watch the game together, these recipes have flavors people love and hold up over the course of the game. The fruit and lime dip are perfect for any junior sports fans joining the party.
Even though there are plenty of games to go we’re here to help you prep for the BIG GAME on November 16. Whether you’re a Spartan or a Wolverine we have recipes to help you tailgate in color! Get the recipes here.
