2016 Week 4 Tailgating Ideas

This is a weekly series where we review the action in the NFL and college ranks and share our best ideas for your tailgating party.

Here are the highlight for week 3 in the NFL:

No change in the AP poll for the top 5 College teams. All 5 remain undefeated. Here is the AP Poll:


Here are our picks for your tailgating party:

From http://www.southernmadesimple.com/ we have Touchdown Taco Cups.

Laura says: Instead of going a more traditional route and making a party dip, I thought these taco cups would be a great way to avoid people gathering around the dip bowl and instead give them their own taco dip in a cup to walk around with.

Looking for something with a little more heat? Check this out:

Hot Sausage Beer Cheese Dip by http://www.foodlovinfamily.com/.

Heather says:

There’s something about sporting events that make appetizers seem like the perfect food. One of my new favorites is this hot sausage beer cheese dip. My husband and I love spicy food!

For a little more meat you may want to try Cream Cheese Sausage Balls by http://www.plainchicken.com/

Plain Chicken says:

These are by far the best sausage balls we’ve ever made.  What makes these sausage balls so good?  Well, the secret ingredient is cream cheese.  The cream cheese keeps the sausage balls very moist and tender.   We used hot sausage to give the sausage balls a little kick, but regular sausage would work well too.   Bring these to your next tailgate party – you won’t be sorry!

This is one of our favorites: Cuban Sliders from http://houseofyumm.com/

Serene says:

These sliders are perhaps my favorite so far.  The cuban!  Loaded with ham, swiss cheese, dill pickle.  Topped with a dijon, onion, butter spread.  Baked til those wonderful little rolls are lightly toasted and the cheese is ooey gooey.

These are so easy to make, and they definitely don’t stick around for very long.

This Football Puppy Chow from http://thefirstyearblog.com/ looks great!

Beth says:

If you’re a pro at making regular puppy chow, you’ll be a pro at this too because it only requires one basic change.. green candy melts! If candy melts are new to you, they are the best invention ever. They are colored chocolate wafers that super easy to melt, making them great for dipping, coating or sprucing up puppy chow 🙂

That’s all for this week. Be safe out there and may your favorite team win!
