Well, what is tailgating?
For those of you who don’t know tailgating is something else Philadelphians enjoy. This consists of you bringing out your summer folding chairs, sitting in the back of trucks and your grills, people cooking anything from burgers, hot dogs ribs, steak and more. Kegs of beer or cases are of course apart of this ritual and tons of shouting!
Football in Philadelphia is a huge thing and fans are very passionate about their eagles. Tailgating is a great way to enjoy the game before it starts and build excitement before kickoff. What better way to enjoy a tailgate than to know what to eat during it? A couple of great food ideas during your tailgate if you did not come prepared are mentioned below. I can vouch for a few of these yummy eats!
Here are the must tries when at a football game or tailgating at the game: the breakfast of champions which is a tender rib eye steak on the grill and prepare to sizzle several double sized eggs over the top of the meat in preparation for a feast. Next we have the ultimate nachos which is composed of lime seasoned chips on an oversized plate, then add a pan full of gowned beef or chicken sprinkled with seasoning of your liking then adding black beans, shredded cheese, diced lettuce and tomatoes, black olives, jalapenos and a heap of sour cream and some guacamole. Last but not least we have the chili which is slicing a meat of choice into cubes and slicing the onions, peppers, and cilantro and then tossing all of that into a pot. Last but not least adding beer is the secret key ingredient.
