    Default Anyone have some good recipes that could be used for tailgating?

    Next friday will be my junior's first home game of the season. This year we have five not including homecoming. I am looking for quick, easy, and if possible cheap main dish recipes that I can use for the Friday night games. I've already decided that this year I will be asking my family and friends that join us to bring the sides.

    Here's one of my faves that is superfast & fairly cheap to make: - - Sweet and Sour Kielbasa |Dump Recipes

    Meatballs are always a hit, you can make a big batch of meatballs with a couple different kind of sauces- Brown Gravy/ salisbury steak type of gravy; Marinara sauce sprinkled with parmesean cheese, sweet-n-sour sauce, etc.

    Grill a Pork Tenderloin- (This is usually the cheapest cut of meat available in our area, around $1.08 lb)

    Make a Rub:
    1 Tbs. salt
    2 tsp. sweet (or smoked) paprika
    1 tsp.white pepper
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1tsp. cayenne pepper
    1 tsp. basil leaves
    1/2 tsp. black pepper
    1/2 tsp. thyme

    (2.5 lb tenderloin)

    pour a bit of olive over your tenderloin and then apply the rub mix liberally over the entire loin. Preheat your gas grill to 400-500F. Cook it for 7 minutes with the lid closed, flip it, in 6 minutes, shut your grill OFF and let it set without opening the top for 5 minuntes.

    Slice the meat across the grain into medallions, serve.

    Tailgater's Jumbalaya

    2 1/2 cups water
    1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
    1 pound fully cooked smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
    1 cup long-grain rice
    3 tablespoons dried minced onion
    1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
    1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 bay leaf


    In a large pot, combine ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat and let simmer for 25 minutes. Stir occasionally, especially at the end to avoid the rice sticking to the bottom of the pot. Remove bay leaf before serving. Serves 4-6 bowls.
