Tailgating Recipes for the Slow Cooker
The slow cooker is the perfect take-along appliance for tailgating. Just cook the dish and keep it as hot as possible in a cooler or blankets for transport. For serving, plug a power inverter into your vehicle's accessory socket, and plug in the slow cooker.
Even if you're using a grill for most of your food, the slow cooker can be used to keep hot dog toppings and side dishes hot for serving.
Here are some excellent options for game day, from pulled pork or chicken to meatballs and sausages.
