Let’s be honest. You’re going to need food for your Eagles game day experience.

They’re the prerequisites for any successful game-day viewing experience: food, family, fun, and the Philadelphia Eagles (and sometimes not in that order). There isn’t anything on Planet Earth that can equal Saturdays when college football takes center stage or Sundays when the National Football League takes the spotlight and shines it on themselves.

That isn’t totally true. The NFL is a Sunday, Monday, and Thursday night product now, and once we reach the later portion of the season and the first two rounds of the playoffs, we’ll need to carve out a few Saturdays as well. You get the point though.

From September to February, our weekends are occupied, and if you ever find yourself in the proper tailgating environment, the ‘family reunion’ vibes and good food and drink can lead you to believe that you’ve passed on and gone to heaven.

Now, while Inside The Iggles doesn’t employ any five-star chefs, we’ve mastered the art of finding and eating good food. Over the years, we’ve exchanged numbers with a few good cooks, and we’ve decided to pass along a few trade secrets.

The right tailgating atmosphere can sometimes make you forget that there’s a game that needs to be played, but we’ll take our chances anyway. Here are a few recipes that should try whether you reside in the Delaware Valley or anywhere else in or outside our great country.

We promise you’ll thank us later.
