Baseball Tailgating Ideas

Burgers and Hot Dogs

We all know that baseball season is just another excuse to tailgate. And that makes me so, so happy!

Watching America’s pastime while eating a steakburger is pure heaven for me. And gathering friends to tailgate together makes it that much sweeter.

Since the weather is starting to warm up, we like to take it outside and throw some steaks on the grill. And burgers, too!

A really nice twist is some delicious sirloin steak sandwiches. Sandwiches are always a hit. But put some steaks inside there and you’ve got fans for life!

What are your favorite baseball tailgating treats?

Burger Recipe Time!

Burgers on Grill

Spring is here! Spring is here!

The official start to spring makes me insanely happy. It signals sunnier days and, truthfully, better moods in my house.

With warm weather naturally comes lots of grill time and that means BURGERS!!!

I prefer steakburgers – made from ground beef of steaks – because they just taste better. Plain and simple.

And you know I adore my steaks, so it only makes sense that my burgers follow suit.

I’m always on the lookout for ways to spice up my burgers and the beginning of a new season seems like a great time to try out some new recipes. Like this Tropical Burger made with Wagyu Kobe beef:

Tropical Burger

4 Wagyu Kobe Beef Steakburgers
salt and pepper
4 buns, toasted
4 fontina cheese slices
4 pineapple slices
1/2 cup prepared mango chutney
1 red onion, sliced
4 lettuce leaves

Directions: Season burgers with salt and pepper, and then grill on a hot grill. While the burgers are grilling, also place the slices of pineapple, and red onion on the grill, and grill them as well, to cook them slightly. When the burgers are almost done, place 1 slice of fontina cheese on each burger, and melt slightly. Remove burgers from heat and let them rest for five minutes. To build, place one slice of grilled red onion, on the bottom half of the bun, place burger on top with a slice of pineapple, and lettuce leaf on top, and the mango chutney on the top half of the bun.

Servings: 4

Host a Watch Party for the “Big Dance”


It’s the perfect time to host a watch party!

Any excuse is a good one if it involves gathering friends and serving great food!

Cheer on your favorite teams as they find out who will go to the “Big Dance.” Have fun with your food selections by using a basketball theme.

Try serving steakburgers with cheese shaped like basketballs. And cupcakes are fun to easily decorate to mimic a basketball – they’re already round!

Anything ball-shaped can quickly fit into your hoops-themed party. Cake balls become basket-cake-balls. Cookies are easy to decorate. And so is pizza! Just use pepperonis to create the distinctive lines of the basketball.

Not feeling that creative? Serve your favorite foods (like steak) on basketball-themed plates and napkins. Your fans will be just as appreciative!

Happy hosting!
