Food Ideas for Tailgating – The American Tradition

tailgating party food ideas
Tailgating. Is this a world wide practice or exclusive to the United States? I’m not sure. But I do know that people can take the art of tailgating pretty seriously. No ones knows the exact date the first tailgating party took place, but I think it’s safe to say that it has evolved over the years.
For those not native to the U.S. of A, tailgating is basically an informal pre or post game party that takes place in the parking lot of a sporting event or concert. It can be as elaborate or as simple as the participants are feeling it. Alcohol is usually involved.
Car loads of fans will start filling the parking lot hours in advance of the kick off, first pitch or opening band. They will open their trunks or hatchbacks and remove portable grills and coolers, tables and chairs. The tailgaters surrounding each parking space become like long lost friends that have been invited into your temporary dining room!
I’m lucky enough to live in San Diego which is considered the 5th best tailgating City in the US! Peohe’s, where I am the Executive Chef, is privileged to cater food for our home team. It’s safe to say that I am rooting for them tomorrow;  But doing so carefully since one of my sisters and her family are die hard Bronco’s fans. (Go Chargers! )

Place your burgers on the well oiled grill. Cook to your desired temperature adding pepper jack cheese, if you like, at the end. (I like mine a little pink inside). Slightly grill your Onion Rolls and place your buffalo burger on top with green Salsa, add your favorite toppings like red onions, iceberg lettuce and juicy tomato.
