5 Unexpected Ways to Surprise Guests At You Next Tailgate

5 UNEXPECTED WAYS TO Surprise Guests AT YOUR NEXT TAILGATE

Looking for ways to upgrade your average tailgate? This season, host your tailgate at home then take your get-together from standard to standout using these top tips. From serving food that’s out of the ordinary to arranging interactive activities, we’re sharing 5 of our favorite — and unexpected — ways to surprise guests at your next tailgate. See full article 

Unexpected Tailgate Set-Up

If you’re planning on hosting a traditional tailgate at the football stadium, plan to pack a toolbox filled with all the essentials you’ll need at the game and keep it in your trunk. Be sure to include things like spatulas, bottle openers, tongs, can openers, skewers, trash bags, paper towels, wipes, sunscreen, plastic bags, and more. If you’re hosting at home, set up a DIY toppings bar so guests can easily serve themselves and customize their BBQ favorites. Don’t forget things like ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, pickled, cheese, onions, peppers and more.


Unexpected Tailgate Decor

Football may be the star of the show, but adding accents and unexpected tailgating touches will make your guests feel extra special. To make your tailgate feel festive, make your own football field table runner for the food and drinks table. Just lay a large piece of artificial turf (or green felt) over the table and add yard lines using white duct tape and felt numbers. Place snacks on tiered serving trays that mimic bleachers, then fill a napkin holder or pail with brightly colored paper napkins and affix a “Penalty Flags” label to the front to stand in as at-home referees. Upgrade simple serveware by placing utensils in a mason jar painted brown with white striped to resemble a football and laces.

Unexpected Tailgate Food

This year, trade in boring burgers and basic hot dogs for something special — and unexpected. Dress up everyday dogs by trying one of these twists. For the first dog, swap out traditional toppings like ketchup and mustard for homemade mac & cheese. Not convinced? Watch the video, then try it for yourself. For the second dog, substitute beef franks for chicken sausage (we recommend Dietz & Watson™ Jerk Chicken Sausage) then top it off with a watermelon relish featuring fresh mint and feta. For the final dog, replace your basic store-bought bun with a pretzel roll. Or, if you’re feeling extra ambitious, wrap your dog in pastry dough and bake it. Set up a toppings bar to one side of your entertaining area so guests can make their own custom creations.

Unexpected Tailgate Grilling Tips

Tailgating and grilling go hand-in-hand, so we’re here to share some of our favorite hacks for making grilling even easier. If you’re throwing a tailgate, your BBQ is bound to get dirty. But we have a quick and easy solution. Take half a peeled onion from your toppings bar and stick it on the end of a fork. When your grill is still hot, run the onion over the grates (cut side down) until it’s completely clean. Now you’re ready to get grilling. For guests who prefer their dogs extra crispy, cut the hot dog in a spiral pattern by pushing a wooden skewer through the center and making angled cuts all the way down the hot dog. Be sure to cut all the way through to the skewer, rotating the hot dog as you go. When you’re ready to fire up the grill, remove the wooden skewer and cook the hot dog as normal. The crevices created from the spiral cuts will not only make the center extra crispy, but will allow more condiments to soak through. See full article  23 | Evite
