Tailgating Ideas for Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving week. Lots of food and lots of football.  Both BCS and AP have the undefeated Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State rated 1,2 and 3. In the pro ranks, Seattle has the best record at 10 – 1. Here are this weeks suggestions for the big game.

Here is a great finger food option for your tailgating party.

Sausage & Cheese Muffins


These smell awesome while their cooking and they won’t last long once their served. Here’s the full recipe.

Next up a great dip recipe. This works well with chips, crackers or vegetables. We think you should try:

Hissy Fit Dip: aka Mississippi Crack Dip


This takes a little time because it bakes for an hour after it’s mixed, but it is well worth the wait. Click here for the recipe.

With the cold weather maybe something hot would be a good choice. We recommend this

Easy Creamy Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bake


A little more involved than some recipes. We think you will agree that the time invested is worth it. Check out this recipe.

And for the grand finale here’s another great dip idea:

Mississippi Sin


This is similar to the “crack” recipe. We like this one better, especially served in a bread bowl. Here’s the recipe.

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend and may your favorite team win.
