Tailgating In Front of the TV

“If a man watches three football games in a row, he should be declared legally dead.”

Tailgate Foods Suggestions
casserole

Baked Baby Back Ribs

My mom didn’t add this but please be sure to add Zinfandel to the BBQ sauce.

Baked or Fried Chicken

Go ahead and use your own family recipe and impress others at the football game. Garnish the chicken with cheeses, raw vegetables, and a Pinot Noir or great white wine.

Aunt Ann’s Gulyas (Hungarian Goulash)

My mothers godfather’s wife was a terrific Hungarian cook. One thing that became a staple before Notre Dame Football games was lunch at Judge Nikhos’ with a big pot of Hungarian Goulash. I wonder if Ann ever poured some dry red wine into it? It will take more than three hours to make this but it is worth it:

1. Brown the beef stew meat.
2. Melt butter over a medium heat.
3. Sauté onions.
4. Pour in some beef stock.
5. Add spices like paprika, garlic, caraway seed, marjoram, black pepper and salt.
6. Place all of these ingredients into a large covered pot, cover the meat with water, and allow it to simmer on the range for two and a half hours.
7. Add sliced potatoes and cook everything about 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
8. Go ahead and reseason it with paprika, pepper and salt.
