If you've driven through Old City in the past month; you're well aware somethings a bit off.... No access to 3rd Street from Market to Race has made it not only difficult for people driving through
Tailgate Recipes For The Linc
Tailgating at the Linc is hands down one of my favorite Philly things to do...but sometimes it can get stressful when you have to bring something...or worse - host! We’ve pulled together some of our team’s favorite dishes & recipes for you to take to the next tailgate.
Justin: My favorite tailgate food is the roast pork sandwich. It’s so easy to do ahead of time so that your tailgating time isn’t spent over the grill. It takes about 5 hours in total (so make this a Saturday activity) but it’s the roasting that is the most time consuming. I use this recipe which is supposed to be a Dinic’s dupe...I’d have to say it’s pretty accurate! Enjoy & Go Birds!
Brittany: I like sweets & I like a good theme, that’s why my go-to tailgate snack is the football rice krispies treats. Not only are they quick and easy...there is no worry about transporting them. I hop on the BSL with them in a bag & know even if it’s crowded, they will still get there in tact! I use this recipe but feel free to use your own too! The key here is using chocolate krispies & adding the icing on as laces.
Lucas: I’m not one to cook but I am one to bring what I know everyone will love to a tailgate...beer & tomato pie. Both staples at a Philadelphia tailgate - I grab my tomato pie from Sarcone’s Bakery in South Philly and pick up a cold case of Yuengling on the way to the stadium.
Jamie: I’m on the same page with Lucas. Not big into cooking but know what the people want! I’m never at a tailgate without bringing some good old Philly Pretzels. I personally love the 1pm games so I can make my fall mimosas in the morning. I like to get fancy - line the rim with a cinnamon sugar mix, fill ½ with apple cider & the rest with champagne and munch on the pretzels. It’s a match made in heaven!
Me: Sign me up for the staple - buffalo chicken dip! I love making this in the morning before a 4pm game because by the time everyone is at the Linc tailgating, they’re already past breakfast mode and full on snack and savory mode! I found this recipe awhile back and love it. Simple, yet there’s never any left when we go to clean up! Tostitos chips are a must with this!
Audrey: I am all about 8pm games! Sure Monday’s are rough after, but you have the morning on Sunday to relax and get ready for the day then you get together with friends for a late brunch and then head down to the stadium. Plus, people have already been eating their burgers, cheesesteaks, etc all day so now they are ready for some dessert! I love this s’mores dip recipe - 2 ingredients (that’s it!) plus graham crackers to dip! People swoon over this which is awesome because it’s simple and delicious!
