Summer is my favorite season, but fall isn’t so bad, either. I like the crisp, coolness in the air and all of the pumpkin-flavored goodies that make their annual appearance. As a football fan, I also like fall because it signals the start of tailgating season.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your next tailgating party, you’d be wise to start with a visit to the “Recipes” section of the National Watermelon Promotion Board website.
Below are just a few ideas I found on the website to help take you next tailgating event to the next level.
Watermelon BBQ Sauce – This sauce is easy to make, and it goes great on just about anything you might be grilling.
Watermelon Glazed Mini Barbeque Meatballs – If you love meatballs (and who doesn’t?), you’ll love these meatballs made with a watermelon barbeque sauce.
Pulled Pork with Watermelon BBQ Sauce – A little pulled pork at a tailgating event is never a bad thing, right? A little pulled pork with watermelon? Even better.
Chipotle Maple Citrus Watermelon Wings – Wings are a staple of any football party, and these will not only score you some points, they’ll probably be the game-winning touchdown.
Flash Grilled Watermelon Cheddar Burgers – This recipe is so simple, you have no excuse NOT to make it. Just grill up a slice of watermelon and slap it on top of a burger. That’s it!
Grilled Spicy Watermelon – As long as you’ve got the grill fired up, you might as well throw a few of these spicy watermelon wedges on there.
