Tailgate Recipes with Six Ingredients or Less
We can all agree that the most important part of any tailgate is the food. (Well, okay, maybe we’re a little biased). If you’re looking for pre-game grub that everyone will fan over, these easy recipes are winners!
It doesn’t get easier than this three-ingredient corn salsa!
1 jar of your favorite salsa
1 large side of Lee’s buttered corn
Diced jalapeño, to taste
Stir salsa, Lee’s corn and jalapeño together. Chill for at least two hours. Serve with tortilla chips.
Bacon Macaroni & Cheese
Everything’s better with bacon, including Lee’s macaroni & cheese!
Shredded cheddar cheese, to taste
4 slices of bacon
1 half-gallon side of Lee’s macaroni & cheese
Pour Lee’s macaroni & cheese into a 3-quart baking dish and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. While it’s baking, cut bacon into thin strips and cook until crispy. Season with salt and pepper. When the macaroni & cheese is fully baked, cover the top with bacon, and it’s ready to serve.
Turkey Melt Sliders
These sliders pack loads of flavor into a few small bites.
12 slider buns
24 turkey slices
8 Swiss cheese slices, torn into smaller pieces
1 to 2 large sides of Lee’s coleslaw
Dijon mustard, to taste
Butter, to taste
Place the bottom buns in a 9x13 baking dish. Spread Dijon mustard across the buns. Layer turkey, Swiss cheese and Lee’s coleslaw, then add the top buns. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. While baking, melt butter. When the sliders come out of the oven, brush with the melted butter and bake, uncovered, for another ten minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes and serve.
