Football Pastry Sliders

Everyone loves a good hamburger or tasty slider. Give the traditional mini sliders a twist at your next tailgate by swapping out the hamburger bun for puff pastry. These football pastry sliders are delicious and fun. All you need are the typical hamburger slider trimmings, puff pastry, and a football or oval-shaped cookie cutter to cut out your pastry, cheese, and hamburger meat.


Add some south-of-the-border flavor to your next tailgate by adding Elote to the menu. Elote or Mexican corn is so savory with its layers of flavor. It does not take much to make this party dish. All you need are some ears of corn, Cotija cheese, garlic, mayo, and cilantro.

Jalapeno Poppers

For cheesy and spicy goodness, you cannot go wrong with standard jalapeno poppers. This particular jalapeno popper recipe has a secret ingredient that takes up the basic jalapeno popper to a classic. The ingredient is bacon! You will also love that the entire jalapeno isn’t completely covered and fried like your traditional jalapeno poppers. The jalapeno is stuffed with a cream cheese and panko mixture and then baked, making these poppers a healthier but scrumptious alternative.
