Posted: February 2, 2018

Wild Rice Recipes for Tailgating

Keeping Your Food Warm

  1. Use Your Cooler

 It may sound weird, but your cooler can help keep your food warm. Wrap some bricks in tin foil and place them in the oven at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Put the bricks on top of paper bags in the cooler, then add your food and a layer of insulation. This will keep your food hot for the whole day.

  1. Use Coffee Canisters for More than just Coffee

Those metal canisters are great insulators. Use them to store your hot beverages, soups, or even dips. They’ll stay nice and warm during tailgating.

  1. Break out the Crock Pot

Since crock pots cook your food slowly, your food can stay warm long after it’s been unplugged. Look for recipes that call for a slow cooker, or try to adapt old favorites to include them.

  1. Use Your Car

If you’re able to have your car close by, take advantage of it. You can use the power adapter in your vehicle as a source of power to keep your food warm.
