10 Breakfast Recipes to Make for Your Tailgate Party
Transform your breakfast favorites into easy-to-eat, portable bites.
Conjuring up a delicious food spread for a tailgate party is usually a cinch, but it can be a challenge for early morning games. (I personally don't want to eat chili or hot dogs at 8 a.m.) Plus, I don't want to get up extra early to prepare everything.
Eating breakfast favorites like pancakes, breakfast pizza or oatmeal is more my style, and our portable versions of the classics make it easy to eat at your tailgate party — not to mention they're just as delectable when eaten cold. Prep our recipes below the night before, so you can sleep in a little on game day. You'll be the real MVP (Most Valuable Planner).
