Think Your Penn State Tailgating Recipe is the Best?

We’re thinking what every fan is thinking this time of year: bring on the football, and bring on the tailgates.

Everybody has a favorite tailgating recipe, and we want to hear yours! Whether it’s wings, snacks, drinks, a sandwich, something off the grill, or a dish so awesome you have to create your own category, we’re counting on our readers to share their go-to recipe on gameday!

Along with the recipe and dish title, you can email a brief description of your dish and let us know what makes this recipe special for you and your family/friends, how long you’ve been making it, and anything else that makes it stand out. Maybe it brings the team good luck on Saturday? Whatever it is, we want to know.

For your chance to be featured on HappyValley.com, along with your recipe, send your submission to holly@affinityconnection.com. You can also send us a photo of the dish and/or your group enjoying the grub. 

And for some inspiration, check out this video of Penn State megafan and Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer sharing her Nittany Nachos recipe on-set last year. Spencer’s also a Penn State graduate, and if you want, you can also include your Penn State graduate year(s), if applicable, on your submission. 

We look forward to sharing your stories, and remember, the season opener on Sept. 2 will be here before you know it!

Select recipes will be shared on HappyValley.com and on our social media channels leading up to the season, and submissions may be edited for length and clarity.
