Kid-Friendly Tailgate Party Food: Easy Recipe

Kid-Friendly Tailgate Party Food with Publix

This post is sponsored by the “Tailgate Party” promotion at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine 

My husband and I both went to major college football schools! I was born and raised cheering for this team, and then became a student at this school. I attended games as a student and had great tailgates outside of the stadium. When there was an away game, we would tailgate in our dorm or apartment, or back at home! Now, as a mom of 5, we tailgate in our living room and kitchen! Believe it or not, it’s just as fun! 

And where do I get my tailgate supplies? My local Publix! A Publix store just opened very close to our home. You know you’re a mom when this is one of the most exciting things to happen in the month. But in all reality, it’s so beautiful and so welcoming! I’ve been a Publix shopper since my mom was pushing me around in a stroller, and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. My kids love getting cookies at the bakery, and I love getting all the best deals, all in one place. And with kid-friendly tailgate food, this easy recipe is so perfect for the next football weekend!

  • King’s Hawaiian Slider Buns
  • La Mexicana Salsa
  • Shredded cheese

That’s it! Three ingredients! So how do you prepare these veggie sliders? You can either lightly grill them using Kingsford Original or Match Light Briquets. And then spoon on some of the La Mexicana Salsa. Sprinkle shredded cheese on them and you’re done! My daughter really liked to help with this also. She loves to cook, and this was certainly a recipe she could help with in the kitchen.
