This is the perfect time of year for tailgating recipes. If you are a football fan, cheerleader, or just cheering on the team there is nothing like rustling up your appetite with pre-game festivities. Grilling and tailgating are part of the culture that we enjoy the most. I don’t think Sammie missed a high school game last year. Game time is big in small towns. We can have just as much fun as heading to a pro game.

Maybe it’s being in the outdoors. Or cheering on the team while sitting in the stands. Catching up with friends pre-game and wrapping up things with a hot coffee. We love this time of year. But, tailgating does take a little planning and of course a few easy tailgating recipes to eat and stave off hunger.
