How do I keep it warm?

Serving your dishes in crock pots, slow cooker inserts and counter-top ovens are the best way to ensure a meal stays warm if it needs to. Remember that food can begin to grow bacteria at 185 degrees Fahrenheit after standing for just four hours, so be sure to plan to keep your food warm. Tin foil turkey roasting pans with foil wrap lids are a great way to preserve heat. Most of the recipes above are delicious served warm or cold.

How do I know what the team will need?

Check in with Cody Jones to find out what dates pre-game meals can be volunteered for. He can let you know what’s being made and you can suggest what you’d like to bring. Team up with other parents to make the most of the tailgating meals and let Cody know what your group can do!
