Sports fans assemble. Fall football season is here, and that means friends, fun and tailgating. To help you get in the spirit this year, we rounded up some of our favorite ready-to-serve parking-lot-friendly recipes in all their cheesy, meaty, ranch-y glory. Let the festivities begin!
Potato skins are a tailgating must. The triumvirate of potato, bacon and cheese can’t be beat. This ranched-up version is guaranteed to win even if your team doesn’t.
There are a million different ways to prepare chicken wings, but this one stood out to us. The cayenne pepper adds a little kick, Dijon mustard adds some sharpness, and the flavor is rounded out with a cool tang from the Ranch seasoning. Sure to be a crowd favorite!
This recipe ups the ante on your standard popper recipe with our Smokehouse Cheddar & Bacon mix. Tip: All that smoky flavor goes great with some barbecue sauce for dipping.
We call it “perfect” for a reason. It’s delicious and so easy to make, you might even find yourself going to it in the off-season.
Speaking of easy-to-transport pizzas, these calzones are perfectly suited for parking lot festivities. Roll it up into a loaf and slice it, or make mini half-moons for the crowd, it will go… all… the…. way…
If you want to expand your horizons beyond the burger, give these meatball sliders a shot.
If you’re looking for a real crowd pleaser, this is it. The dip is delectably cheesy, and the homemade pretzels are so good, people will assume you spent hours laboring in the kitchen. (Your secret is safe with us!)
