September 15, 2015 – Football season means it’s time to perfect the art of the tailgate, and ALDI is here to help! Keeping your fare fresh and healthy on game day might be easier than you think with these simple tips for better-for-you fall flavors.
Cauliflower steaks make for a filling and flavorful meat alternative at any tailgate, and, just like any steak, the key is in the cut. Remove the stem and leaves and cut one inch off two sides of the cauliflower head to form a rough rectangle. Slice parallel to the straight edge to get four steaks out of each cauliflower head.
Nothing says “football” quite like a hearty burger. Kick up this tailgating classic with a bold, fall flavor: cranberry. Cranberry chutney is a delicious alternative to ketchup, and it couldn’t be simpler to make – toss cranberries, apples, oranges and a bit of maple syrup into a pot, sauté and serve!
Grilled Pears and Apples
The grill is the centerpiece of any successful tailgate, and there’s no need to put it away when dessert-time rolls around! For better-for-you, crowd-pleasing treats, try drizzling halved pears or apples in a little caramel sauce and throwing them on the grill.
