It is one of my FAVORITE times of the year – Football time! Woo Hoo! I have lived all over the country and I have to say that no where takes football as seriously as in the SEC! Go Vols!

Here are some of my favorite dishes to fix for the games and they are always a HUGE hit! This collection of 10 amazing tailgating and football recipes is one to definitely pin for the new season! I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave me a comment with some of your favorite football and tailgating foods! The best foods are little portions of some of our favorites like baked club sandwiches and mini burgers along with some yummy sides such as cornbread salad and of course dips of all kinds – dill pretzel dip, spinach artichoke dip, and who could forget the salsa!

These Baked Club Sandwiches are great for the games. They are easy and fast to prepare, slice them into hand held pieces and provide a little ranch for dipping!

These Hawaiian Ham Rolls are one of those foods that you blink and they are gone! They are THAT good. Good thing they are quick to make so making additional batches can be made during a commercial break.

BBQ Pork Sandwiches are a staple here in the south. We LOVE our BBQ and it is one of those easy tailgate foods as well as easy to host a party. You could also put the BBQ on the Hawaiian Rolls to make them miniature and hand held.

This Layered Cornbread Salad will go great with the BBQ sandwiches or Mini Burgers. The recipe makes a large amount, so perfect for a tailgate or party.

 Mini Burgers are a great way to have a wonderful tailgate food that is easy to serve to a crowd. These grill up quickly and are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

 These Tangy Meatballs are the perfect party food. Throw everything in the crock pot and let simmer. Makes a large amount and easily served for finger foods with toothpicks.

These turkey sausage balls can be made ahead and baked right before serving. They are a great finger food for those football parties!

This Dill Pretzel Dip is super easy to whip up and the perfect dip for tailgating. A little goes a long way! A huge crowd pleaser as well.

Salsa is a staple at any party. Why buy when it is so easy to make your own?! This is a super easy recipe and makes an amazing salsa. You can split the batch and make part hotter than the rest for those that like more spice!

Finally, one of my all time favorites when watching the game – Spinach Artichoke Dip. This is easy to make and once baked, you can place in a small dip crock pot to keep it warm throughout the game.
