Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But wait, isn’t tailgating just about drinking beer and talking trash with your buddies?” To which I say, “Yes, of course it is. But what’s the point of all that if you’re not also grilling up some delicious food on a Coleman Tailgate Grill?”
So, without further ado, let’s talk about 10 dishes you can grill or griddle on your trusty Coleman Roadtrip Grill.
10 Tailgate Recipes:
- Burgers: Let’s start with the classic. You can’t go wrong with a juicy burger hot off the grill. Throw some cheese on there and maybe some bacon if you’re feeling fancy.
- Hot dogs: Another classic. Grill up some all-beef hot dogs and let your guests add their own toppings like mustard, ketchup, and onions.
- Chicken kabobs: Cut up some chicken, peppers, onions, and mushrooms, skewer them, and grill to perfection. Bonus points for marinating the chicken beforehand.
- Grilled veggies: For the non-meat-eaters in the group, grill up some veggies like zucchini, squash, and asparagus. Add some olive oil and seasoning for extra flavor.
- Breakfast sandwiches: Who says you can’t tailgate in the morning? Whip up some breakfast sandwiches by grilling some English muffins, eggs, and bacon.
- Grilled pizza: Yes, you read that right. You can make pizza on your Coleman Roadtrip Grill. Just throw a premade crust on the griddle, add sauce and toppings, and grill until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Quesadillas: Another unexpected tailgating option. Grill up some chicken or steak, add some cheese and veggies, and sandwich it between two tortillas for a delicious quesadilla.
- Grilled shrimp: Impress your guests with some grilled shrimp. Marinate them in a garlic and herb sauce and grill for just a few minutes on each side.
- Grilled peaches: End the meal on a sweet note with some grilled peaches. Brush with butter and cinnamon sugar and grill until soft and caramelized.
- S’mores: No tailgate is complete without dessert. Make some s’mores by grilling marshmallows over the flame and sandwiching them between graham crackers and chocolate.
