Everybody Wins Game Day with these 7 Cheesy Tailgating Appetizers

Score a touchdown at your next game day tailgate with these 7 cheesy appetizer recipes!

Professional football season finally kicks off this week, and I could not be more excited! 

After an epic, cardiac arrest-like Super Bowl win, Adam and I are pumped to see what kind of season our beloved New England Patriots have this year! I just keep wondering when our number 12 is going to hang up his jersey, though (don't get me wrong, I don't want to see you go, Tom! But I am just surprised you didn't retire after that epic win in February).  This whole pre-season, we have been keeping our eye on the rosters and stats, and we think that we have a pretty tight lineup that should get us through to the playoffs for sure! 

With game day season comes our tradition of delicious, weekly get-togethers of enjoying tasty food and having a few drinks before the game starts. Today, I am sharing some tempting, cheesy appetizer recipes perfectly suited for your game day tailgating and homegating entertaining plans (including this buffalo shrimp dip shown above from the Peas and Crayons blog!)
