Whether tailgating at a football game or some other sport venue, how do you decide which tailgating recipes to prepare that day?  Are you always cooking for a large group or a small crew?

Our household is excited for football season to be upon us once again, but whatever your favorite sport or event, we have gathered 7 amazing tailgating recipes to share with you (click on the picture or name of the recipe to access detailed recipe for saving, sharing, or printing).

Most of them are easy to either prep or completely make up ahead of time, ready to dump in a crockpot, throw on the grill, or serve up immediately when you arrive.

Turkey & Roast Beef Muffuletta – These sandwiches are made on Italian bread with chopped olive seasoning mixture.  Make them ahead and wrap in wax paper or foil before refrigerating; then cut and serve at your destination.  Super easy and incredibly delicious!
