Tailgating – Easy & Creative Football Food

Who’s ready for some football! We are a football loving family and how better to get the excitement for the big game brewing than a little tailgating. Hebrew National beef frank hot dogs with all the fixins, cute football cupcakes, salty snacks… we just can’t get enough!

My kiddos prefer Hunt’s Tomato Ketchup and Gilden’s Mustard above all other topping choices. What about you? What is your favorite? Did you see my Hawaiian recipe… if not you have to try it. I’m still making it and summer is now on the out.

So let’s talk tailgating! Want to create a simple and fun tailgating spread? You’ll need:

For the table decor, here’s what I used:

  • black & white stripe napkins inside coffee filters (easy clean-up and inexpensive)
  • strip of indoor/outdoor “grass” carpet
  • plastic cups for condiments and plastic forks wrapped with washi tape
  • football ticket for food labels (handmade)

Little tailgating tip, keep your buns warm! We live in Ohio and although your frank is hot off the grill, a warm bun makes it all the yummier when you’re freezing! {wink}

And once you have the best cuts of meat and the right “fixins,” round your table out with salty and sweet complements. I’ll share how to make these fun football field goal cupcakes, and give you the football printables, in my next post.

Go ahead, get some Hebrew National franks and start planning this Saturday’s tailgate. You won’t be disappointed!

Hebrew National Recipes

With grilling season winding down (at least here in Ohio), everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut… and what doesn’t {wink}. Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts. Just the way I like to feed my family!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and yes… always celebrate!
