Bowl Game Tailgating at Home

Bowl Game Tailgating at home

My Auburn Tigers had a tough season this year, and the Birmingham Bowl was the end of the line for them. Whaa-whaa-whaa. But we are still big fans of the bowl games and usually watch games all day on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Since we are watching on TV, we do our bowl game tailgating at home. I will traditionally make quite a few appetizers and pick-up foods, and we are with our teams in spirit. It works for us.

This year some of my food blogger friends have helped me pull together a list of recipes so that you, too, can do your bowl game tailgating at home. Take a look…

Bacon and Cheese Party Sandwiches from Mary at Chattavore. I’ve made a similar sandwich with ham and swiss, but I love Mary’s idea of using bacon, gouda, and maple syrup.

Mary’s party sandwiches would pair terrifically with BBQ Red Slaw from Donya at A Southern Soul.

I’ve made Rotel dip with Velvet and sausage a thousand times, but Plain Chicken’s Hissy Fit Dip takes it up a notch. I’m definitely making this instead!
