As teams take to the field in a battle for victory, fans head into “Tailgateville,” firing up the grill and cooking a pre-game feast. More than 20 million Americans tailgate in a stadium parking lot yearly, and Food Network’s Sandra Lee has the winning recipe for the total tailgating experience — food, football and fun.
“The best part of football is the tasty tailgate with your friends,” says Sandra Lee. Whether the hungry fans at your gathering are craving brats, Italian or smoked sausage, there are plenty of varieties to choose from. Sandra Lee makes the most of Johnsonville Sausage in these recipes for Turkey Sausage with Apple Sauerkraut, Spicy Italian Sausage and Pepper Skewers with Balsamic Glaze, and Beer Brats. Best of all, they can be prepared ahead of time and brought along to the game.
No matter where you catch the action — in the stadium parking lot before kickoff, or from the comfort of home — a delicious tailgate is key to making game day something to cheer about.
