If you’re looking to boost your own tailgate-hosting game, check out these featured recipes straight from the arsenals of the Scenic City’s expert entertainers.

“I love this recipe because it reminds me of New Orleans, one of my family’s favorite places to visit. It makes for a great tailgate recipe because you can make it ahead of time, and it travels well – and who doesn’t love a sandwich with four kinds of meat!”
