Football season starts this week! (Technically last week for some of you, but the SEC starts this week!) So I thought it would be fitting to round up some of my favorite tailgate snacks into one post! I hope this helps while planning out your football parties, tailgates and snack cravings you have this season!
This is seriously such a good dip. I bring it to most parties because it’s so easy to make and always a huge hit among our friends. I’m not going to say it’s good FOR you, but it certainly is tasty!
While chips, dips and drinks are essential at a tailgate, you can’t forget dessert! These warm chocolate and cheese croissants are the perfect finger food when you need something sweet at your tailgate.
I originally made these for Easter, but I think they would be a super party snack as well. Deviled eggs are always a hit at parties, and this one brings the heat. If you like spicy foods, this recipe is a must-try.
I haven’t made these in awhile, but I’m not going to lie, I think about them a lot. If you like potatoes, you definitely want to try these loaded tator tot bites. I am thinking about making these this year and putting them on a skewer for even an even easier grab-and-go snack. I’m envisioning a tator tot kebob of sorts. Maybe I will post that soon.
Fun fact. I actually don’t like hot dogs. However, I thought these were delicious when I made them. If you want to elevate your typical tailgate food, then this recipe is for you!
I love cherry flavored anything. So these cherry chicken tacos were right up my alley. These are full-sized tacos, but you could easily make mini tacos to serve as an appetizer!
This may seem a little weird for a tailgate, but honestly it’s so tasty. It would have to be one you try earlier in the season while peaches are still good, but I think your guests will thank you for adding a fruit to your menu.
I mentioned earlier I don’t actually like hot dogs, but I LOVE pigs in a blanket. These take an extra step and make a delicious appetizer. Anytime I bring them out for a party, they are the first things to go.
This post is not very old, but I think it’s a great idea for a tailgate or watch party. Use boxes that work for your team and fill them with delicious snacks for your guests to graze. I used GN for game night in this post (we were actually having game night), but most schools have an abbreviation you could totally use!
What are your favorite tailgate snacks?
