Happy Thursday and cheers to the short week, it’s almost Friday y’all! I’m back with this weeks tailgating tip and recipe, but first can we talk about an epic sports day today? Wow! Not only is it the beginning of the NFL season, but college ball is on the tube too! I’ll be kicking off the evening watching Serena Williams in the semifinals of the US Open (yesss!), so football will have to follow. My evening is set!
There’s a few other sports events going on if the above mentioned is not your thingy, or perhaps your gearing up for the second week of gameday Saturday. If you are it probably means your planning for a tailgate too. Now tailgate enthusiasts know game times can be all over the map. You must have a menu plan to cover breakfast for those early morning game times. For me this is easy. I whip up a big ole batch of tofu scramble and set out all the fixin’s for make-it-yourself breakfast tacos along with a self-serve drink bar. Read along as I tell you how.
To ensure your gameday morning goes smoothly and your dressed and ready for your tailgaters, make the scramble the day before (recipe is below). Put the scramble on a table with a spoon with foil packets of heated corn and flour tortillas. Include the following fixin’s in separate bowls: tomatoes, green onions, avocados, shredded lettuce, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, salsa, and plenty of hot sauce. I also like to make a big ole pan of roasted potatoes to have as a side. You could also include an easy fruit bowl using pre-cut fruit.
For the drinks, try these self-serve ideas: use a big metal container or plastic tub and fill it with beer and ice, set up a Bloody Mary bar including all the fixin’s, don’t forget a pitcher of pre-made Mimosa’s and champagne glasses.
You’re all set to sit back and enjoy your company and game(s).
