When it comes to game time, you have to have food. So why not create THE tailgate experience at home?! Because it is not just a day or even a weekend, because tourney time is a month-long celebration of college basketball, this tailgating theme is easy to execute any day of the week. For a fun party atmosphere, create concessions stands around the kitchen and any room that has a television and a game on. This way you don't need to make large meals and can offer your guests a number of different snacking options. If you want take the tailgating experience to the next level and the weather will allow for it, open up the BBQ and grill a number of your guests’ favorites.
Chips, chips and more chips. Whether you want your toppings on your chips or you want to dip your chips into something savory or both, nothing makes chips more interesting than nachos and queso.
Looking for something other than chips? How about something easily held in one hand and potentially a lot less messy? Both these mini pizzas and finger sandwiches provide satisfying single serving snacks that are highly portable and always fan favorites.
If the weather permits we also encourage you to consider bringing out the BBQ earlier in the season than you might normally do. And we will reward those brave enough to do so with following worthwhile grill recipes that you will make you a champion in your own home regardless of the score of the game.
