Tailgate Recipes: Egg Muffins



It seems like we've had a string of early games and I was searching for a healthy and hearty recipe to make for tailgating. I made the standard egg muffins using a normal muffin metal pan but I found the finished product to be too small and too much of the eggs ending up sticking to the pan, even after I greased it. Then I had an idea! I would use my football silicon mold pans because I knew the silicon would help with the sticking and of course the football shape would be great too!

Ingredients:
12 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1 package frozen spinach, cooked
8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 bag of grated cheddar cheese
dash salt/pepper

Directions: Grease the pans with oil. I used coconut. Beat the eggs and milk together until well blended. Add the cooked spinach to the eggs, be sure to drain the water. Add the bacon and cheese. You can substitute cooked ham or sausage as well. Add a dash of salt and pepper and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. The muffins literally slid out of the molds. It was perfect. And they microwave well the next day if there are any leftovers. My husband added sour cream and salsa to the tops of his, which I thought was a great idea.

Gameday Fashion: Warby Parker Sunglasses


One of the necessities of tailgating is definitely a good pair of sunglasses. Admittedly, I have quite the collection. I love a good aviator but I also love anything tortoise shell. The new Corner Collection from Warby Parker is totally cool. I like the unique shapes and designs. One of the most impressive features of the company is their "Home Try-On".  You can pick any 5 glasses to try and they will ship them to you for free.

Tailgate Games





Classic games like washers, cornhole and throwing the football around are all great for tailgating. I also like bocce ball and ladderball, especially for the kiddos. What games do you play while tailgating?

Tailgate Recipes: Mini Chicken and Waffles




Ingredients:
Mini Eggo Waffles
Chicken Nuggets
Maple Syrup  <<<<< Check out this maple syrup taste test

Tailgating Directions: I haven't made these yet but I think I am going to attempt them at our next home game. For the chicken nuggets, I will stop by Chik-fil-a for their nuggets or KFC for their popcorn chicken. (I think any chicken nuggets would work). Then throw the Eggos right on the grill to toast them and then a light drizzle of maple syrup. Sounds easy, right?!
