There are so many things to look forward to during the autumn. School starts back up, sweet corn and apples are ripe for picking, and football season gets started in earnest. Of course, one of the best aspects of any football season is the opportunity it provides for tailgating. Whether you are someone that enjoys the camaraderie of a parking lot party or you just enjoy a good tailgate before heading into the game, having the right tailgate food and beverages at these little shindigs is essential for a memorable pre-game event.

The following are some tailgate food ideas, with a little help from the delicious foods available for order through Deli Direct:

Grilled Polish Sausage

The people that have those tiny little grills always are the envy of everybody else at tailgate parties, but choosing the meat to sizzle on those grills can make all the difference. Our polish Kielbasa sausage is our #1 grilling item, hickory-smoked with just a touch of garlic. They come in two-pound packages with 12 delicious links. All you have to do is buy buns and a bottle of our delicious horseradish mustard.

Beef Jerky

We have a new jerky store here at Deli Direct, including everything from a bucket of Jack Links to the delicious gourmet Krave brand of jerky. The Carnivore Candy brand offers a lot of delicious options, as well, and any of it makes for great snacking at tailgate parties.

Sausage & Cheese Platter

It’s no secret that Deli Direct has a number of delicious block cheeses and sausages that can be laid out among your football food spread this fall and enjoyed with crackers as an appetizer before the main course to come. We offer everything from simple cheddar blocks to horseradish cheese to our Farmers Market harvest vegetable cheese block. All of it tastes delicious with salami and crackers.

Dicks Perky Pickles

These perky pickles include a little kick of horseradish to spice them up, and they’re great in a number of contexts. If you’ve got a spread of deli meats for sandwiches, they go great with those, and we’ve also heard of customers who love them with a good Bloody Mary. They’re great to have on-hand for tailgate parties, though, in any context.

Alcoholic Beverages

While we do offer a delicious Bloody Mary mix at Deli Direct, just make sure you’ve brought along a few beers, too. We even sell a slick metal beer bucket to class up the ambiance, but whatever you drink, remember to do so responsibly!

The truth is that football party food really isn’t all that hard to put together, especially when so much of it can just be ordered from Deli Direct and shipped to your door. Having the foresight to order these necessary items for a tailgate party could mean your gathering enjoys all the great food required for a great get-together, but with none of the stress that goes with intense preparation. Just order your goodies and enjoy your tailgate party. It really could not be any easier!
