Slow-Cooked Fan Foods Sideline as Winning Weekday Dinners

When we think tailgating, the slow cooker is MVP — a natural pick for easy prep, intense flavor and transportability. Sales of these champion culinary tools are up, in sync with a return to food essence over convenience (sorry microwavers). With this in mind, we are cheering on slow cooking as a smart way to bring time-tested taste to fans in parking lots all over the country. Our tailgating recipes also make awesome weekday dinners. When everyone’s game plan is different, a warm, tasty, homemade meal that essentially cooks itself can go a long way to getting the crowd going again!
