Host it: Super Bowl Breakfast Tailgate

Got neighbors? Got breakfast recipes? Got team spirit? Then you’ve got the ultimate breakfast tailgate.

Move over hot dogs. Burgers are so very yesteryear. What’s fresh to feed on pre-game, this Super Bowl season? Breakfast, complete with delicious eats and spirited drinks for kids and adults alike, will help fuel the day. We’ve got recipes and more to turn your AM into an awesome tailgate experience for all. Invite a few neighbors, dress in “team” colors and get set to score big in the hostess category.

Bonus: These recipes help stave off morning chaos, thanks to our prep-ahead tips and tricks.

Slow-Cooker Oats: Nothing says warmth and comfort on a chilly football morning like the gooey richness of oatmeal made with milk instead of water. Our pick is full of protein (thanks to milk) and can be made overnight, so all you have to do in the AM is dish up and serve with toppings like chopped nuts, dried fruit and shredded coconut; guests can choose from the loot.

Touchdown Tomato-Pesto Egg Casserole: Why we love this savory egg bake? The whole thing can be made the night before and only requires a quick heating in the oven before the guests arrive. The best part? Your house will smell like heaven laced with herbs – yum!

Breakfast Blitz Bar: These bars are chock-full of wholesome goodies like dried fruit, walnuts and oats to excite your inner dynamo. Wash it down with a glass of milk before a game of flag football, and before the Big Game, too!

Crowd-Pleasing Mint Cocoa: Make all your guests swoon with a hot chocolate that’s cheer-for-it worthy. This version has a hint of mint, cocoa and milk, with its 9 essential nutrients. Go the extra yard: Dip the rim of the glass or mug in water, then colored sugar, to represent your favorite team.

Milk Gallon “Football Field”: Turn your gallon of milk into a football field by marking the carton at every 10 yards. See how long it takes your family to go from the 50 yard line to the end zone!
