ENDZONE TAILGATING WAFFLE BAR

Good eats and football viewing parties just go hand in hand if you ask me. I have some yummy savory ideas to share and then we'll serve up a delicious "touchdown" waffle dessert bar for a fantastic finale.

The star player in all of my Tailgate recipes is Eggo Homestyle Waffles and I also have some great news to share. Eggo waffles now have no artificial flavors and colors from natural sources! So let's get our creativity on with these tasty game day eats.

Waffle Bar Nachos

The sky's the limit when it comes to how you can create savory waffle nachos. Start by toasting Eggo Homestyle Waffles and cutting into four equal wedges so that they are nacho shaped. Once your waffles are toasted into nacho ready shapes, it's time to add some toppings.

Waffle Nachos Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 12 Eggo Homestyle Waffles (Wedged into 4 pieces
  • 2 Cups Great Value Shredded Hash browns
  • 1 Cup Great Value Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ Cup Hungry Jack® Original Syrup

Serving size 4 "nacho" waffle wedges with toppings. 12 servings per recipe.

I used shredded hash browns and shredded cheese on top. Then, I set up a variety of additional toppings so that guests can choose their own. These are my two favorite combinations to enjoy:

Waffle Nachos with Hungry Jack® Original Syrup for a sweet bite.

Cheese dip, sour cream, chopped tomatoes and onions for a more savory flavor.

Yum. These are so delicious!

WAFFLE DOGS

Next up, a simple idea that I call "waffle dogs". This breakfast inspired food is a fun way to make your tailgating party memorable.

Here is how to turn your Eggo Homestyle Waffles into the perfect portal for sandwich style fillings.

Preheat your oven to 375°. Defrost desired amount of frozen waffles in your microwave. Turn your muffin tin upside down and fold each waffle gently in half and press each waffle into the creases. You should be able to make 9 for each batch. Bake for 8-9 minutes until gently crisped. Remove from the muffin tin to cool.

Waffle Dogs Recipe

Ingredients

  • 12 Eggo Homestyle Waffles
  • 12 Breakfast Sausages
  • ½ Cup Hungry Jack® Original Syrup

Serving size one waffle with one sausage and a drizzle of  syrup. 12 servings per recipe.

I found these great taco serving plates at Walmart that were perfect for serving these on a party table. Serve up breakfast sausage to complete your waffle dogs, of course. Then offer toppings like Hungry Jack® Original Syrup, shredded hash browns, shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes and onions to take these to the next level.

Feeling thirsty yet? Don't forget to fill up a cooler with beverages to sip on. Capri Sun® Fruit Refreshers make for a convenient and tasty option. With flavors like Awesomely Apple and Very Berry Punch, there will be something for everyone. No need for cups, because you can just pop in the straw and they're ready to drink. Score.

Time to end off our tailgating party with something extra special. First we'll make the perfect waffle cups and then we'll top them off with a spread of mouth-watering options.

Defrost desired amount of frozen waffles in your microwave. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Press each waffle delicately into each cup of your muffin tin.

EASY TAILGATING DECORATIONS

I have to admit, decorating for parties is one of my very favorite things to do. I loved the decorations that I found at Walmart. The first thing to do is figure out your color scheme. You could use your team colors or do a green, white and gold theme like I did. I love the classic green and white football decorations, but I wanted to make them pop a little more by using some gold highlights. This YAY balloon I picked up was completely perfect for this.

Then, it's all about banners to really deck out the back of a vehicle. Since, generally trunks aren’t the most beautiful things ever, banners really help get them party perfect. I used a mix and match of traditional football decorations with a glittery gold banner. It balanced out really well.

Depending on your vehicle shape and size, it might be helpful to use a folding card table like I did to have more of a surface to serve foods on. Pick up a matching tablecloth and add a glittery banner if you like it fancy! I sure do. 😉
