Tailgate On!

We’re midway through football season. Temps are cooler than they were when the season started, and our favorite teams have begun to establish their win-loss records.

Depending on the results, fans might be a little more (or less) exuberant than they were at the beginning of the season. But no matter how our teams are doing, it’s time to Tailgate On!

Culinarily speaking, it’s also time to kick things up a notch or two - to add some things to the tailgate menu that weren’t on it before now. By now, our tailgate guests are probably a little tired of submarine sandwiches (or even grilled hamburgers and hot dogs); chips and salsa; and carrot and celery sticks with ranch sauce. And with the cooler temperatures, they probably want warm up a little before sitting through the chillier games. For home chefs, this is good news, because it gives us a chance to flex our “tailgate muscles,” and up our own game a little.

So, what do we do now? What do we serve our friends on Friday night, Saturday afternoon - any time we’re headed off to the game, or entertaining a group of football fans at home? At MorningStar Kitchen we have lots of ideas for you! In fact, we’re serving a lot of them to our guests and crew these days, in celebration of both football and high color season here in Northern Michigan. Most of what we’re serving these days are recipes that we reserve especially for this time of year. Many of them take advantage of our fall harvest. And all of them add to the celebratory flare of the season.

Let me give you a glimpse into what we’re serving before next week’s game.

With the incredible flavors on this menu, we’re confident that this will be a memorable start to another beautiful October afternoon at the stadium!

All these recipes, along with hundreds more, and the seasonings that make them over-the-top delicious are available on our website. Check us out now and be prepared for your next Tailgate Party!
