Tailgating Cheer on the Home Team with Beef

Goal:  The long summer days have come to a close, the busy rush of the school year has begun and the leaves are beginning to turn.  This can only mean one thing - it's time for football season, tailgating and entertaining for the big game.  Texans love to get together and celebrate their team and one of the most important parts of the starting line-up is food.  A smart football fan's best offense is beef recipes that are quick and easy. 

Whether you are tailgating in the parking lot or inviting friends over for the game on the big screen, plenty of food is a must.  One key to successful gameday recipes is having something ready to go as soon as the game begins, so you aren't stuck in the kitchen or next to the grill missing all the great plays.  Think about items that can be made ahead of time and keep it simple so you don't have to carry a number of ingredients.  Be sure to pack paper products as well as items to assist in clean-up.  In addition, hand-held dishes at game day parties are always a big win.

These are just a few ideas for your game day celebration.  You can find hundreds of recipes to score big and keep the fans cheering on
