Football season is finally here, and tailgating season has arrived along with it! Even if you’re not a huge fan of sports, there’s no denying that game day parties come with some excellent food. Whether you’re someone who likes to host parties, someone who likes to attend them or someone who wants to bring the fun to the stadium, it’s important that you plan ahead and get the items you need to make some delicious tailgating treats.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the best tailgating foods in Williamsport, PA, which you can find at Tony’s Delicatessen & Fresh Meats:
- Nachos: Nachos are easy, delicious and beloved by just about everyone. You’re probably going to spend most of your time focusing on the toppings—perfectly seasoned chicken or beef, delicious black beans, tomatoes, lettuce, jalapenos, black olives, onions and, of course, cheese, sour cream and salsa. But don’t forget the chips! The quality of the chips you use can make or break the nachos. Make sure they’re fresh and crunchy. We love lime-seasoned chips, in particular, to add some extra zest to your nachos.
- Pulled pork: Another easy recipe that’s highly portable in a crockpot, pulled pork is sure to be a favorite at your tailgate. Of course, it’ll take a bit of planning ahead. Put the pork in the crockpot and add some pepper, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and cayenne and refrigerate for eight hours or so. Then, rub the pork with a mixture of apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil and Worcestershire sauce, and let it cook in the crockpot for about 10 hours. After that, you can separate the pork with a fork, let it reheat and then serve it in warm, soft buns. You may even add some barbecue sauce!
- Chili: Another easy but satisfying dish that’s perfect for game day is chili. All it takes is taking your meat of choice and all the vegetables, beans and spices you want to add in, tossing them into a pot (or crockpot) and letting it simmer. Some people like to add a dark beer to add some extra flavor complexity.
- Ribs: Ribs are much more complicated to make than the other recipes on this list, and will require some preparation, but boy, are they worth it! If you have a smoker handy, this is the best way to make ribs, in our opinion.
- Chicken wings: Chicken wings are a bar food favorite and also a tailgate favorite. If you have the right sauce or rub, they’ll be gone before you know it.
- Bacon-wrapped shrimp: Here’s a delicious snack that will not last for long once you set it out! Use shrimp without tails and let them sit in a marinade of sugar, olive oil, cayenne, salt and white vinegar. Dry them off, wrap them in bacon, secure them with toothpicks and let them sit on the grill for 10 to 15 minutes.
- The old standbys: Burgers, bratwurst, hot dogs and chicken are all crowd pleasers that are easy to toss on the grill at a moment’s notice.
