Looking for recipes that will help you kick off your football tailgating season on the right foot? Check out this round-up of tailgating recipes on Taste As You Go!
The sentiment is a day late, but welcome to September, everyone! Although the long weekend marked the unofficial end of summer, summer is certainly clinging on with a vengeance as we're experiencing a bit of a heat wave in the Lehigh Valley. So much so that Stephen and I actually turned the air-conditioning on to avoid dealing with the humidity.
Regardless, most people have started making the transition from summer to fall, and for us, that means transitioning to football tailgating season. Lehigh's first home game is this coming Saturday, and I know that Stephen and I are both looking forward to reuniting with our fall family.
Anyone who has ever tailgated with us before can tell you that tailgates are kinda a big deal to us. Our group of friends typically chooses a theme for each week, and we compete with each other to come up with a dish (or multiple dishes!) that not only fit the theme but also taste great. So, it comes as no surprise that Stephen and I are always looking for new tailgating recipes to try.
In celebration of the return to watching college football, I've enlisted the help of my fellow food bloggers and have put together a photo-heavy round-up of 18 Football Tailgating Recipes. The next time you're in need of some tailgate food inspiration, I'm sure you'll find something to suit your tastes here!
