Tailgate Recipes To Get You Ready For Independence Day

Have you got your plans figured out for Independence Day yet? You don’t need to do anything fancy to make some great memories with families and friends. All you need is your tailgate, good music, and some great food!


Tailgating is an excellent and easy way to enjoy the Huntington Beach weather. It’s also an opportunity to show off your cooking skills. There are tons of cooking hacks to keep your food hot and fresh, whether you’re preparing it at home or on a small grill in the parking lot! Hot dogs and burgers are an easy classic, but don’t let that stop you from getting creative. Here are some of our favorite recipes for tailgating in 2022:


Bacon Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese Cups. One common challenge of tailgating and picnics is ensuring you have enough utensils, balancing plates on laps, and serving foods carefully enough not to destroy your paper plates. The quick fix for that? Handheld foods! These mac and cheese cups make all of the above unnecessary worries. 


Quesadilla Burgers. Tacos or burgers, tacos or burgers…how about both? We love this recipe because it elevates your classic tailgate burger and combines it with another cheesy favorite! 


Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. A crock pot is a great way to prepare your food the day before and have it transported and warm all day long! We don’t have to worry about cool temperatures here in Huntington Beach, so your crock pot will likely keep your food warm without even being plugged in during your party. 


Patriotic Cupcake Cones. Don’t forget dessert! This recipe has patriotic colors and the ice cream visual without the ice-and-cooler stress. No need to worry about these melting! 


And don’t forget to check out this BuzzFeed article with all of the best tailgate hacks (our favorite is the beer six-pack converted into a condiment tote, because who among us hasn’t forgotten the ketchup and mustard before?!).
