This weekend is our first big football kickoff weekend, my oldest is playing in the marching band at our first home high school game. Tomorrow is an Iowa Hawkeyes game and we’ll be at a local party cheering them on and then my youngest has his first game on Sunday afternoon. There’s a little bit of football every day of the weekend and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Of course when we start having football games one of the first things I think about is the food and the tailgating parties that will happen. Tailgating is a time when you should serve up some delicious, game day grub. Like Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Hellmann’s® Turkey Nacho Crunch Strangewich or Kelley Earnhardt’s Hellmann’s ® Creamy Onion Dip. I was inspired by their creations and had to make my own recipes to share with my friends and family! Check them out below before you head to Walmart for groceries, you’ll be able to pick up everything you need when you’re there!
