Get pumped up for the big game with a tailgate party. Our recipes block the fat, intercept the hassle and score a touchdown with any fan (or fanatic!).
Grill on the Gridiron
Fire up the grill for delicious, low-fat cooking. Plus save time by making these dishes the night before and having them finish marinating in the cooler while you're on your way to the game. Use disposable containers that way there aren't any dishes to wash later.
Try Easy Barbecue Turkey Burgers for a new twist on the classic burger. The combination of barbecue sauce and mayonnaise lightens the burgers, yet give them a tangy flavor that’s perfect for outdoor eating. If you’re in the mood for steak, try our Steak Salad with Tomatoes, Peppers, Sweet Onions and Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can mix up the vegetables and the vinaigrette in advance and grill the steak in the stadium parking lot for maximum flavor!
Take the Chill Off
All you need is a portable butane burner or a thermos to warm up with this lusty soup before the big game. Our South-of-the-Border Soup can be a meal by itself—featuring pork, pinto beans, pasta and tomatoes. Or try our Chicken and Corn Chowder to keep you toasty during those late fall games.
No Special Teams (or equipment)
You won’t need any special equipment because you can prepare these dishes at home and enjoy them when you get to the field. Roast Turkey, Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Wraps make an easy meal, especially if the game is on Thanksgiving weekend and you can use turkey leftovers! Or try Grilled Salmon and Fresh Spinach Wraps. Pair them with your favorite pasta salad and you have a terrific tailgating meal with a minimum of fuss.
On the Sidelines
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy side dishes of grains and legumes like the ones that star in Wild Rice Salad and Brown Rice with Crunchy Vegetables. You won't want to pass on Marinated Coleslaw it's a match for barbecue.
