How many Friendsgivings are too many? Hopefully the limit does not exist, because we’ve had three this year, and our tailgating inspired Friendsgiving with Jess of the Sports Brat was one of our favorite ones yet. Lucky you, we filmed it all (yep), so you didn’t miss out on anything!
If you aren’t familiar with the Sports Brat, you should be. She’s the real deal, y’all, and hopefully our new best friend. She’s sports obsessed like us, loves good food and drinks, and has the most precious dog. So, when she asked us to come over to film a Friendsgiving webisode that centered on tailgating recipes, it was a definite yes for us.
We brought over a fall sangria and baked pumpkin pie donuts – both are perfect additions to your tailgate. You can make both ahead, and they’ll feed a crowd. We’ve made a few different version of baked donuts, but these by FAR are the best ones. Whether you’re tailgating early or late, they’ll be a new gameday favorite.
The sangria is more of a non-recipe – chop up some of your favorite fall fruits (we used a pear, an apple and pomegranate seeds). Pour a bottle of sauvignon blanc in a pitcher and add the fruit. The longer you let it sit, the better the fruit will taste! Right before serving, add in two bottles of hard apple cider, and you’re tailgate ready!
Jess baked up sausage stuffing balls and mini green bean casserole bites, and we inhaled them all. Head to the Sports Brat for those recipes, as well as to catch the first of the webisode! This was the first time we’ve filmed something, and while Jess is a pro… us, not so much, so enjoy 🙂
Hope y’all have the best Thanksgiving and overeat your hearts out.
