Tailgating Tasty Tartlets

Tailgating Tasty Tarlets on a platter

It’s that time of year again, FOOTBALL Season!!  I live in a house with my husband and three teenage boys , so to say the least it is full of testoserone. It is football football and more football on the weekend. We go to our local High School football game every Friday night there is a home game .We support my hometowns football team and watch the marching band to see the cutest Tuba player there is , my youngest son lol. Honestly since my kids High School has a brand new Stadium it isn’t that much of a hardship.

On Saturdays it is football mania, this is what I call random football. The TV is turned on to any and every football game going on from early in the morning to late at night . The guys basically follow SEC but they will watch other conferences , I mean seriously you never know who may play each other in the bowl games  …LOL. All of this football watching and TV yelling makes everyone very hungry and they need snacks to keep their strength up. These Tailgating Tasty Tarlets are spicy , cheesy and full of goodness . They are just perfect for snacking while watching football. We usually need more than one snack, another favorite for my guys is Meaty Queso Blanco Dip  …I mean it’s an unwritten rule that chips and dip must be present while watching football.
