Don’t Forget These Tailgating Staples!

What's a tailgate without baked beans?
This recipe for Maple Baked Beans is full of classic, smoky-sweet bacon and maple flavor without all the extra unpronounceable ingredients in canned baked beans. Best of all, it can be made a day or two before the big game— in fact, it’s best that way to give the flavors a chance to meld.
Originally published in our spring 2012 issue, it was so popular that we republished it in our 5th anniversary cookbook issue (summer 2015).
Don't forget the buns!
Not just any bread will do for our special tailgating menu. Be sure to pick up some fresh bakery buns made with local ingredients by people who have their hands covered in flour and smile at you when you walk through the door. See our Guide to Locally-Inspired Bakeries.
