It is tailgate season! A fun time to root for your favorite team, getting together with friends and family, and, of course, eating yummy tailgate food!
So, this week I am taking a break from organizing ideas to share some of my favorite get-together recipes. if you are looking for easy, delicious recipes to wow your guests or family at the big tailgate party, you can’t go wrong with these.
Whip up some of these awesome appetizers!
First up is classic spinach dip.
It is so easy to make and I love how it’s creamy from the mayonnaise and sour cream, but also has the unexpected crunch of water chestnuts. I also love the fact that you make it the day before and let it marinate, so it is easy to prepare ahead and take along. I usually serve it with tortilla chips. Delicious!
Next up are the best crock pot meatballs ever!
Crock pot meatballs are the perfect get-together food. Only 3 ingredients, cook and carry it right in the crock pot, and everyone loves that sweet, tangy sauce. And there will be easy clean up, too, because there will not be leftovers!
Fiesta pull apart bread is a yummy way to spice things up, whether your team is winning or not!
What? You don’t know what pull apart bread is? Basically, you chop up biscuit dough into smaller pieces, coat it with seasonings and bake it. Then you pull it apart to eat it. It’s easy to make and a big hit with everyone!
You gotta have dessert, right?
How about Clingons?
These Clingons are an easy dessert made with cereal, not the Klingons from Star Trek! 😉 They are called Clingons because you pull them apart to eat them. They are crunchy, chewy and sweet; full of rice and corn Chex, marshmallows, peanut butter and M&M’s. What’s not to love?
Another easy, yet oh-so-good dessert is Decadent 2-step chocolate-mint brownies.
I love the combination of chocolate and mint, don’t you? Cruising the baking aisle at the grocery store a while back (which can be a dangerous thing to do…), I came across bags of baking chips in different flavors like toffee, peppermint, and chocolate-mint and decided to try them out. These brownies are the result and have become my favorite go-to dessert for company or when I need to take a dessert to a function, especially if it is last-minute, since these are so easy to whip up. They are delicious and really only have 2 steps.
And one last one, in honor of my hometown team, the Ohio State Buckeyes. Decadent buckeye brownies!
A new twist on an old favorite that are simple to make using brownie mix. I think these taste just as good as the candy!
So, what are your plans for the big game?
Is the gang coming to your house or are you heading out? Get your game face on and go root for your team! Oh, and take along some of this yummy tailgate party food! 😉
