I very seldom mention tailgating. It isn’t because we aren’t sports fans. In fact, Mr. D and I met on a blind date and attended a football game with friends on our first date. Mr. D loved professional football and I loved going to my high school football games. We have changed and sports has changed so we don’t watch much football anymore. I do remember attending a Wake Forest-North Carolina college game in Winston-Salem a few years ago. I was amazed at the many different ways that people experienced tailgating. There were people with white tablecloths and table settings of crystal and china. There was also people eating the Colonel’s chicken out of the back of a pick up truck.
As I was browsing through my recipe books over the weekend, I saw the recipe I am sharing with you today and it made me want to tailgate. I have never heard of rice krispies being incorporated into a savory recipe. However, I think this sounds like a wonderful treat. I am including two more recipes on the page that are for cheese biscuits and they sound good too.
The recipes are from my cookbook 300 years of Carolina Cooking and was published by the Junior League of Greenville, South Carolina in 1970.
I love the concept of tailgating and I love cheese so much, I can’t imagine having a spread for a big game without some type of cheese dish. Mr. D and I usually watch NASCAR on a Sunday afternoon but it isn’t quite as exciting as it used to be. I have heard stories of the NASCAR of previous years and I do believe it was a lot more exciting. “Chicken Bone Alley” is the cheap seats at a NASCAR track and is located on the back stretch of the oval track opposite the start/finish line. The term refers to the people in the cheap seats throwing chicken bones toward the track. Maybe they need to stir up a little more excitement for the NASCAR fans today.
Anyway, who says you have to watch a sporting event to have a tailgate party anyway? Thanks for stopping by.
