Make your football party easier on yourself by making these recipes for tailgating that use frugal and basic ingredients!

It’s almost football season! And that means lots of good food! And while tailgating food can be delicious and fun, it also has the possibility to be stressful and expensive.

Make it easier on yourself by going with recipes that don’t require a ton of extra work and that use frugal, basic ingredients (stadiums made out of lunch meat aren’t necessary…).

More Tips for Preparing Tailgate Foods:

-Instead of buying bottles of water, fill bottles you already own (Nalgenes, Thermoses, recycled soda bottles, etc.) with tap water and throw them in the cooler.
-Don’t buy pre-made trays of food. They are usually pretty expensive and you can easily make a tray of veggies, meats, and cheeses on your own.
-Prepare foods that can be made ahead in large quantities (chili, for example). It’ll be easier on you (less dishes) and really easy to transport to your tailgate spot.
-Turn your tailgate into a potluck. Choose a theme for the meal (taco bar, baked potato bar, cheeseburgers, etc.) and have everyone bring a different component.
