Recreational Vehicles are a great source of fun and food. Gathering family and friends together for a little tailgate party does not have to be relegated to just football season. Tailgate parties are great for NASCAR races and for big events like the NBA Finals, March Madness, and even for holidays like the 4th of July. Family celebrations can be cause for a tailgate party.
If you are on the road, you most likely don’t want to take a lot of time to prepare appetizers for these fun events. Here’s a little roadside assistance from your friends at Coach-Net. It’s a list of easy to prepare appetizers for your next tailgate party.
Sounds complicated but it’s a breeze. Buy your choice of uncooked meat or cheese ravioli and fry in olive oil until just lightly brown. Drain the ravioli and add a little salt and grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with some warm marinara sauce on the side and you are good to go!
Mini Hot Dogs or Sausages
Here’s another easy tailgate appetizer option. Start with a 16oz bottle of unflavored barbecue sauce in a crock-pot. Stir in three heaping tablespoons of grape jelly, and heat for about a half hour, stirring until jelly melts. Drain your mini-dogs or sausages and add to the mixture. Within an hour or two you will have a treat everyone will love!
Blue Cheese with Pecan Spread
It doesn’t get much easier than this. Mix a cup of softened blue cheese with 4 tablespoons of chopped toasted pecans. Use on crackers or vegetables, and even add a drizzle of honey to give it an extra layer of flavor.
Stuffed Cheesecake Strawberries
These are so good they may have to be considered a desert. Take 8 ounces of cream cheese and let it soften. Mix in 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar (sifted) and 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the softened cream cheese. Hollow out the tops of about two pounds of strawberries and scoop in the cheese mixture. Dip the tops of the stuffed strawberries in crushed graham crackers and watch the reaction!
Remove the stems from the mini-portabella mushrooms, and then stuff with softened cream cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and then sprinkle on some chives and/or some finely chopped tomatoes or green onions. Simple and vegetarian!
