Getting in a good meal before tailgating is always important. Trust me, you don’t want to drink beer on an empty stomach. Sometimes, early football games, or early tailgating, call for a breakfast with friends coupled with a good screwdriver, mimosa, or bloody mary. Make sure your tailgate is ready for game time with these amazing recipes.
Silver Dollar Sandwich
Pancakes are one of my favorite morning foods, but are not super portable. Try this recipe for an easy pancake sandwich. You can play with the pancakes too, making them apple cinnamon, blueberry, or strawberry.
12 silver dollar pancakes, about 4 inches in diameter
6 slices bacon, made into crumbled maple bacon
*try this recipe, or make your own. Simply cook bacon on a cookie sheet with real maple syrup and brown sugar. the addition of dijon mustard ensures it isn’t too sweet*
6 eggs, fried (scrambled eggs don’t really work with this recipe)
Make pancakes, set aside. Make maple bacon, crumble and set aside. Make fried eggs, either hard fried or with a runny yolk. Set aside. Make squares with the tin foil large enough to cover the pancake sandwich (about 8 inches in diameter). Take 6 pancakes and place each on a square of foil. Smear the crumbed bacon maple compote evenly on each pancake. Add a fried egg and top with another pancake. Wrap each sandwich in foil. When at tailgate, place the foil covered sandwiches on the grill and heat for 10 minutes. Pass out foil sandwiches, open and enjoy!
Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich
Who doesn’t like a biscuit sandwich. Again, biscuits are like a blank canvas. Try making sweet biscuits, adding cream cheese and apple slices in the middle instead. Post your favorite variations.
8 biscuits (use premaid, or make your own from your favorite recipe)
8 slices cheese
8 slices bacon or sausage
Optional: vegetables or your choice
Take made biscuits and slice in half horizontally. Cook bacon and break each strip in half. Take each biscuit, and place 1/4 of an avocado, sliced on each bottom. Next, place 1 slice bacon on each biscuit bottom on top of the avocado, making sure the bacon is placed as two half slices next to one another. Lay 1 slice of cheese on top of the bacon. Either fry eggs, or scramble, but make sure to place the egg HOT on the biscuit on top of the cheese so the cheese melts. Optional to put a ring of onion or tomato on the sandwich. Place tops of biscuits on the bottoms. Wrap each while hot in foil. Bring to tailgate; pass out to friends and fans, and enjoy!
