It’s no secret that my family is big on college football… and I do mean BIG. On any given Fall Saturday, you’ll find us (and any friends, family and/or neighbors that wish to join) camped out in front of our TV, which has been relocated to the garage for the day, watching from morning until night.
Everyone coming to our tailgate brings some party food, typically a side dish or appetizer of some sort. Like many hostesses, I’m always a teensy bit worried that my guests will leave hungry. The main dish is simple – hot dogs, burgers and brats hit the spot. But I’m always up for trying new tailgate recipes to keep things new and exciting.
Here are two of my current favorite recipes that you can make for your next tailgate party:
This dip recipe is super versatile. It goes well with just about anything – potato chips, crackers, veggies, you name it. However, my favorite pairing is Keebler Town House Wheat Crackers. They’re light and flavorful, but still have a texture that can stand up to this thick dip.
Of course, there needs to be a little something sweet for dessert, and these little ice cream sandwiches really hit the spot. They use Keebler Soft Batch Cookies, so they’re simple to make!
The combination possibilities for this tailgating dessert are endless! Vary the ice cream flavor and the toppings that you roll the sandwiches in to create a dessert that’s sure to please.
Let me know what you think of these two new tailgate recipes, and what your favorite tailgate recipes are by sharing your thoughts below. Happy tailgating!
