Tailgating Food Ideas

The darling tailgating party from Fresh Chick Designs featured on the blog this morning (and in the latest issue of The Party Dress Magazine) have left me with football on the brain….as well as the looming question, “what to serve for our next football gathering?”

Whether you are watching the game from the sidelines or gathering friends at home, some simple, cozy snacks can make the game that much more fun!  I went to two of my go-to entertaining resources for ideas, Better Homes and Gardens and Country Living, and here is what I will be serving up this weekend:

1. I love the idea of serving simple snacks such as pretzels, chips, crackers and nuts in individual brown bags – a totally rustic, yet functional way of compartmentalizing them!

2. Mini BLT sandwiches:  They are cute and round.  Need I say more?

3. Salted Golden Caramel Bars: I am a sucker for rice crispy treats (naturally gluten-free for me!), but add in sea salt, caramel and chocolate?!  I may even root for overtime if it means I can eat more of these!

4. Chunky Tomato Salsa: I always like to have a couple of dip options readily available, and this chunky salsa option is on my list to try.
