Kids, No problem! Tailgate At Home. 3 Quick And Easy Tailgate Food Ideas!

September 26, 2019


Football season is back and that means tailgating! (At home that is) Having small children can make it difficult to head to a tailgate party. So why not bring the party home? It's just as fun and probably even less expensive. Invite some friends, have the game on, and snack away. Today, I'm sharing three very easy tailgate food ideas that everyone will love, even the kids!

If you're like me then you love to shop and save. I love that BJ's is a one-stop shop for all our needs. BJ's provides unbeatable savings on delicious fresh food and groceries with it's exclusive Wellsley Farms brand. I was able to pick up everything I needed to create a tasty tailgate party. 



Meatballs 

These are a big hit! They are packed with delicious flavor that even the pickiest eater can't resist. To make these you start by frying the meatballs, once they are golden brown you add your chopped Wellsley Farms Green Pepper, onions, and garlic. Let that cook for about five minutes. Then you add your marinara sauce and seasoning packet. Cover and let it simmer for a good half and hour. 



Corn on the cob 

This is a staple. Wether you prefer to grill it or put it in the oven like I did. Everyone will love it. Top it off with some salt and pepper and you are good to go.



Buffalo Chicken Dip 

You can't have a party without this dip. I make this dip every chance I get. It's creamy, cheesy and delicious. There are a few ways to make this dip if you search it on Pinterest. The way I like to make mine is on the stovetop. All you need to make this is shredded chicken, cream cheese, ranch, buffalo wing sauce, and cheddar cheese.

Have your shredded chicken ready. I like to get the Wellsley Farms Hot Rotisserie Chicken from BJ's and shred it. It has much more flavor than if you just boil your chicken. Then I mix the chicken with a little buffalo sauce. Remember start with teaspoon and add more if you want it spicier. Heat your stove top to medium heat and add your cream cheese. Mix it around until it starts melting then add half of the bottle of ranch. Mix until well combined. Add your chicken and cheese and mix until the cheese is melted. Serve with some Wellsley Farms Organic Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips.

  5. Tailgating at home can be just as fun as doing it at the game. Plus, you have the comfort of air conditioning and comfy couches.

  9. Thankfully I don't have to cook regularly because we have a stay-in cook at home. This would be really a problem for me. By the way, your little one is soooo adorable! <3
