Ravens tailgate recipe | Bacon-wrapped cheddar dogs

Here's an appetizer you might not have encountered before. A juicy, beefy hot dog wrapped in bacon that's oozing cheddar cheese on the inside. I find it more fun to serve these as an appetizer with a toothpick rather than on the classic hot dog bun. These go great with a bowl of spicy mustard as a dipping sauce.

Ravens Tailgate Recipe: Maryland-style pit beef

One of the staples of Maryland eating is pit beef. There's something special about the flavor produced when cooking a beef roast over fire. It's not the most common sandwich to see at the stadium, but when done correctly, it makes for an easy and extremely tasty tailgate. This recipe has you doing most of the cooking at home before the game, with an easy reheating step at the parking lot.

Grilled jerk chicken wings for a zippy Ravens tailgate

Ravens Tailgate Recipe: Grilled jerk chicken wings for a zippy Ravens tailgate

Wings are the classic football appetizer. The usual flavor combination applied to wings is a buttery hot sauce and a salad dressing for dunking the wings. Nothing wrong with that. But if you want to take your tailgate to a new level, give these wings a try. The rich spicy heat from the habanero peppers along with the Jamaican jerk flavors of allspice, green onions, cinnamon, thyme and nutmeg really make these wings stand out. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can do most of the work the day before the game by placing your chicken in the marinade overnight and grilling it when you get to the stadium (or to your backyard grill).

Tailgating recipe: Onion, Gruyere and Bacon Dip

5:27 PM EST, December 13, 2012

Tailgating recipe: Onion, Gruyere and Bacon Dip

You could, in a pinch, pick up a tub of generic onion dip from the refrigerated section at your local store before your next football gathering. Or, terrifyingly enough, even off the shelf in the chip aisle.

Tailgating recipe: Buffalo chicken dip

Tailgating recipe: Buffalo chicken dip

Let's get this out of the way: This week's recipe is not health food. It's not foodie food. And it's not particularly pretty food.

Tailgating recipe: Fingerling potato salad

3:04 PM EST, November 8, 2012

Tailgating recipe: Fingerling potato salad

This potato salad recipe bucks the usual drenched-in-mayo stereotype — and that's a good thing. It's vegan (and gluten-free), but don't let that steer you away. You can't beat the flavor, thanks to a dressing with a base of apple cider vinegar, olive oil, red onion, herbs and more.

Tailgating recipe: Balsamic Soy-Glazed Wings

5:37 PM EDT, October 11, 2012

Tailgating recipe: Balsamic Soy-Glazed Wings

Wings are football food. There's no denying it. But they're certainly not health food.

Tailgating recipe: Chicharrones de pollo

7:31 AM EDT, September 21, 2012

Tailgating recipe: Chicharrones de pollo

On first glance, chicharrones de pollo might just look like garden-variety chicken nuggets. Don't be fooled. This recipe with Dominican roots calls for the chicken to be marinated in a mix of rum, lime juice, soy sauce and sugar, making it full of flavor.

Tailgating recipe: No-grill BBQ ribs

6:10 PM EST, January 19, 2012

Tailgating recipe: No-grill BBQ ribs

This Sunday, the Ravens will have to brave frigid Foxborough, Mass. to take on the New England Patriots. But you won't have to stand out in the cold to make these ribs. Instead of a grill, you can use your oven to roast this tender, savory game-time snack.

Tailgating recipe: Meatball subs

3:23 PM EST, January 12, 2012

Tailgating recipe: Meatball subs

It's our first home playoff game since 2007, and depending on the outcome of the Denver and New England game, it could be our last home game until next season. So let's make this tailgate count.

Tailgating recipe: Chili

Tailgating recipe: Spicy hot chocolate

2:52 PM EST, December 22, 2011

Tailgating recipe: Spicy hot chocolate

While the weather forecast for Saturdays' Ravens game is in the high 40s — not exactly Green Bay territory — it can get chilly after being outside for a while. One of the best ways to keep the cold at bay is with a cup of spicy hot chocolate.

Tailgating recipe: Samba Dogs

3:11 PM EST, December 15, 2011

Tailgating recipe: Samba Dogs

As "Barbeque Bible" author Steve Raichlen points out in his latest ebook, "Raichlen's Tailgating! 31 Righteous Recipes for On-the-Go Grilling," "Long before NASCAR and the Super Bowl, there was tailgating. This distinctly American institution dates back to 1869, and probably earlier, when Rutgers and Princeton played their first intercollegiate football game.

3:40 PM EST, December 1, 2011

Tailgating recipe: Pesto Salmon and Veggies en Papillote

Tailgating recipe: Turkey Burger Sliders

6:06 PM EST, November 23, 2011

Tailgating recipe: Turkey Burger Sliders

If deep-frying or grilling a whole bird in a stadium parking lot feels bit daunting, why not consider something as simple as turkey burger sliders? No matter what is on your tailgating menu, you know it just won't feel like Thanksgiving if it doesn't include turkey in some form or another.

Tailgating Recipe: Soul Rub Grilled Chicken Wings

4:36 PM EST, November 17, 2011

Tailgating Recipe: Soul Rub Grilled Chicken Wings

Adam Eagan knows a thing or two about good food and beer. It is, after all, what he does for a living. At least four or five times during the football season he packs up his car with food and fixings and makes the 5 1/2-hour trek from upstate New York to Baltimore to join some of his buddies for a their 'killer" tailgate in lot H1 at Ravens stadium.
