My family and I love tailgating!
Since last year, my family and I have tailgated at the Cincinnati Bengals home games. What a freaking fun time we have!If you have never gone tailgating then you are missing out on a good time. I don’t know how other football fans celebrate their teams, but the Bengals have a good time! If you don’t know what tailgating is, it is basically like a huge pep rally but for adults. People bring their own food, grills, and beverages and have a ball. Sometimes we share food with whomever we are parking next to. There is also music, drinking games, and vendors that sponsor special giveaways. Again, a stupid good time! Here are some of the things that I’ve done in my tailgating experience:
– I’ve played Keg Bowling.
– I’ve drunk from a huge ice sculpture where alcohol was poured down my mouth.
– I’ve danced with various people.
– And I’ve taken shots.
In order to get a pretty descent car spot and you have to get up pretty early in the morning to secure your spot near the Paul Brown Stadium. I’m talking no later than 9 am. So I thought it would be nice to make some manly football sandwiches before the game! When I cam up with this thought I wondered “Why not just pile on a whole bunch of breakfast ingredients and put them on a sandwich?” I can be such a genius when I want to. Even when I don’t want to I’m a genius. And I am telling you, if you make these sandwiches they will be a big hit at your next tailgating party and a huge hit on your belly.
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!!!!!!!
- 6 cups Hashbrown Potatoes, Cooked According To Package Instructions
- 1 pound Bacon (cooked Over Medium Heat Until Crisply Then Drained On A Paper Towel)
- 6 whole Eggs
- 12 pieces Texas Toast
- Butter Spread
- 12 slices American Or Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Cook the bacon and hash browns and set aside. Using a griddle or small sauté pan over medium to medium-high heat, spray griddle with cooking spray. Once hot, place the eggs on the heated surface. I began to cook the eggs sunny side up and flipped them when they were done on one side, and then I cooked the other side until done to my liking. Set the eggs aside as well.
- Use a butter knife and spread an even amount of butter on one side of two pieces of bread. Place a piece of cheese on the non-buttered side of each piece of bread, add a fried egg, 3-4 pieces of bacon, some cooked hash browns, another piece of cheese, and the last piece of bread (butter side out) on top and wrap in aluminum foil. Repeat with the remaining bread and fillings.
- Then when you are at your tailgating event, heat your grill to medium heat. When your grill is ready, place the sandwiches wrapped in the aluminum foil on the grill and allow to cook on both sides for 5-10 minutes to allow the bread to get toasty and the cheese to melt.
