Handheld Bites for Your Tailgate

It's football season!

Plan on tailgating before your favorite team plays? Here are two easy, handheld foods for your next tailgate (or super bowl party). Get out those muffin pans!

Mini Corn Dogs:


Use muffin cups to make these individual sized corn dogs. Super simple recipe:

1 box of Jiffy corn muffin mix, mix according to package

cooked/grilled hot dogs, cut into thirds

Pour the muffin mix in the pan, place hot dogs in the center of the muffin. Bake at 400degrees for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Serve warm, or let cool. Easy to pack for your tailgate and great at room temperature too!

Mac n Cheese Cups:

Another super easy recipe using boxed mac n cheese - or you can make your own!

1 box of your favorite mac n cheese

1/4 cup of panko

1/4 cup of grated Parmesan, shredded cheddar cheese

Fresh cracked black pepper

Make the mac n cheese according to box directions. Add other ingredients and stir to combine. Stuff the muffin pan with the mac n cheese, top with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 400degrees for 5 minutes, until bubbly. Let cool and easily take the cups out of the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.

How easy is that?

Both of these were a hit at our most recent tailgate. Try them at yours. Go team!
