Making Tailgate Food Ahead of Time for a Low-Stress Game Day

Whether you’re rushing to the field after work for the local high school’s game, starting the weekend with a Rutgers game on Saturday morning, or waking up with the sun on Sunday to root for the Giants or Jets, one thing is certain during football season: you’re not a true fan if you’re not in the parking lot for the tailgate!

Of course, getting everything ready for game day isn’t always easy when you’re juggling work, school, or other commitments. You’re definitely going to want your burgers to be fresh off the grill, but prepping other food beforehand can make things a lot easier. Here are a few of our favorites!

No-Mayo Potato Salad

This one’s got a lot going for it: it’ll keep in the fridge the day before, it won’t get gross during the tailgate, and the flavors go perfectly with a meal fresh off the grill! Use potatoes, parsley, onion, and your other potato salad favorites. Instead of mayonnaise, though, toss them all in a dressing made from ¼ cup olive oil and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. The result is savory, flavorful, and keeps longer than it’s mayo-based cousin. Want an extra bit of freshness? Toss a diced apple into the mix!

Lightspeed Chili

You might think of chili as a time consuming, simmering dish, or even an all-day-in-the-slow-cooker dish, but using different ingredients can speed things up. Stick to Great Northern beans and pre-canned green chiles for your base, and toss in a shredded rotisserie chicken from the store, and you’re practically done before you’ve even started. Simmer for a bit the night before, then heat things back up with a pot on the grill for gameday. This one’s perfect for those cold weather games!

Sausage Snacks

Essentially a stuffed mushroom without the mushroom, these savory delights are going to fly once you uncover them. Mix sausage, cooked quinoa, shredded cheese, and a bit of pepper and cornstarch, then shape them the way you would make meatballs. Simply bake them, and you’re good to go! While they still need to be cooked before the game, it’s good to note that you can refrigerate the balls the night before or even freeze them up to a month beforehand. It’s easy to make a double batch, make half for the game, and save half in the freezer for an easy setup next time.

Whatever you decide to snack on, cooking and packing your Subaru beforehand can make for a nice, smooth morning on game day.
