Dottie's Top 3 Tasty Tailgate Recipes

Hiya Folks, it’s Dottie bringing you another blog post! This week I’m getting to talk about my two favorite things… FOOTBALL and FOOD! Hope you enjoy!

With football season coming up, I’m sure we’re all counting down the days. I can already smell the burgers on the grill at tailgates and hear the distant sounds of Enter Sandman.  With Hokie football fast approaching, it’s time to start perfecting your festive Hokie tailgate menu!

Not trying to brag or anything, but over the years I’ve been to my fair share of tailgates. Some may even say I’m a PROFESSIONAL tailgater! So today, I’ve decided to share with you my favorite tailgate treats that are not only simple and affordable but TASTY! Without further ado, here’s my top 3 Hokie bird approved tailgate treats that will be sure to spice up your festivities this football season!

First on my list is…

~ 3 Ingredient Meatballs~

Meatballs are a classic tailgate treat. They are perfect for sharing *or if you’re like me you can eat an entire plate to yourself! * This recipe is perfect for game day and is super simple to make all you need is:

  1. Frozen Meat balls (Pre-cooked).
  2. A jar of Grape Jelly.
  3. BBQ Sauce of your choice.

And that’s it! Crazy right?!

Just mix your ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours then your perfect bite sized snacks are ready to eat!

Next on the list,

~ Hokie Themed Cake Pops~

There’s nothing a Hokie bird loves more than consuming bite sized pieces of maroon and orange cake on a stick. *I’m drooling just thinking about it! * These tasty treats are a tailgate essential and can even double as decorative piece as well! Kinda’ like you’re killing two… with one stone… well… you know how that expression goes.

Anyways, these are super fun plus easy to make! Just follow the recipe and decorate your cake pops with maroon and orange and you’re good to go!

My Last Hokie tailgate essential is something a little more savory to go with your sweet treats!

~Tater Tot Skewers~

This treat can be made in advance or at your tailgate! Just bring the pre-cooked tots to your tailgate, some skewers, and whatever topping you want (My favorite is bacon and cheese!).  Heat them over the grill! Your guests will love this fun and easy to eat dish!

Well Hokie Fans, I’ve got to go. All this talk about food is making me hungry! May your tailgates be filled with laughter, friends and of course tater tots!!
