Packing for a tailgate: what to make, how to pack, and what to bring
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Spinach and artichoke dip is a game-time favorite. This recipe was inspired by Hillstone’s beloved version of the dip.
Oven-Baked Steak Fingers
Steak fingers are ideal for tailgating as they require no utensils, which make them super-easy to eat, with minimal cleanup.
Pimento Cheese Spread
Only four ingredients make up this spread with a spicy kick.
Avocado and Egg Sandwich
If you’re tailgating early in the morning, this avocado and egg sandwich is a perfect meal, and a great vegetarian option.
Toasted Tuscan Chicken Sandwich with Roasted Red Peppers, Fontina, and Pesto Mayonnaise Recipe
These are easy to make and are surefire crowd-pleasers. You can make these sandwiches at home before the game, or assemble them with little effort once you are there. If you don’t have pesto, use regular mayo.
Tailgate Cinnamon Turkey Chili
The name says it all — this is a lighter and sweeter version than your average chili and it’s perfect for the early fall months!
Hamburger Baked Bean Casserole
This is a great make-ahead dish for tailgating that incorporates the hamburger, a tailgating staple, in a new way.
Mulled Wine Cocktail
You can’t forget the drinks when watching a good game. To stave off the cold weather, make this seasonal mulled wine cocktail.
Maker's Mark Tailgate Toddy
Another hot toddy, with a zip of cinnamon to it, to keep you warm during the game.
