I thought it would be fun to compile a few of our favorite Game Day & Tailgate Party Recipes in one nice recipe round-up. Seems I have quite a ‘few’ favorites. Just click the bold red recipe titles below, then scroll to the bottom of each page for printable recipes. Enjoy!! Every great tailgating party has their signature Chicken Wings presented front and center. For us, those wings are our copycat version of Mardi Gras Chicken Wings, made even tastier at home.
Our starting lineup always includes thick juicy burgers, loaded to perfection. Our favorite is the Isle of Palms Burger with Homemade Pimento Cheese Dip, another Game Day favorite.
Pimento Cheese Dip with Jalapenos is FAN-tastic Dip. Make up a big batch the day before and check one recipe off your list.
Sweet Tea and Lemonade are Southern staples, just like College Football. We give this refreshing beverage an adult twist. Check out our signature Lemony Thyme Sweet Tea Cocktails.
Three cheers for these No Bake Chocolate & Peanut Butter Pretzel Squares!
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Shrimp are a game changer. Mouthwatering goodness.
Whether you’ve set up a tailgate party outside the stadium or on your back deck, fire up the grill and get the dogs on. Serve them with a big pot of make-ahead Hot Dog Chili.
Buffalo Chicken anything is always welcome at a Tailgate Party. Buffalo Chicken Dip, Baked Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, Buffalo Shrimp, and this yummy Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup with Orzo are all standouts.
One of the easiest dishes you can serve your Game Day guests is BBQ Pulled Pork. Set up a slider bar and let your friends build them their favorite way.
And don’t forget to put together a simple batch of Classic Coleslaw. Great on hot dogs and pulled pork sliders. I’m here to tell you that these Cheez-It Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers won’t last long. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from tailgate partying…don’t get caught between a man and his chicken fingers.
Friday Night Sliders and High School Football go hand in hand. Easy to make the patties ahead, then throw them on the grill for your pre-game party.
Fresh Tomato Salsa and Fire Roasted Tomatillo Guacamole team up nicely with nachos or served with a side of Homemade Flour Tortillas. If your tailgate party starts bright and early, you’ll love starting the day with an Easy Cheesy Breakfast Casserole. Make it up the night before and you’ll be good to go.
Or if you need to pack up and take the game on the road, Breakfast Taquitos are a fantastic portable tailgate party food.
Don’t underestimate the popularity of a good deli sandwich. Our favorite is Roast Beef & Horseradish Cheddar. Wrap them up the night before, just leave all the ‘fixins’ on the side and let your guests dress their own. And don’t forget the Horsey Sauce.
Our most popular recipe on the blog and on Pinterest is this Crab Rangoon Dip with Wonton Chips, for that reason alone it makes this Game Day lineup.
Kick up your burger recipe and try these Grilled Chicken Tequila Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo or our check out our BBQ Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Chips.
According to Peyton Manning there’s “Nothing like Tapenade … and football … together!” That’s good enough for us.
Prepare for a crowd to gather around when you put out a tray of Chocolate Chip & Oreo Caramel Brownies.
When the weather cools down, warm up the fans with a batch of 27-Ingredient Chili Con Carne. This recipe makes enough to feed the entire team.
Food on a stick ROCKS!! Antipasto Skewers are no exception.
You can feed a crowd with a Low Country Boil and you can take it on the road with Low Country Boil Skewers.
