Pan-Seared Fish Tacos

One of our favorite fangating™ recipes is fish tacos, especially when we are in coastal sports towns with local fresh fish.

“Walk The Plank” Salmon

One question we get a lot here at Hungry Fan® is if grilling salmon on a plank is worth the effort. The short answer is YES. The long answer is yes, and with the recipe below, you’ll be good to go.

Chicken ‘n Waffles

Chicken and waffles is a game day staple. Love ’em love ’em love ’em. And because it’s a combination of fried chicken and a favorite breakfast baked good, the recipe lends itself well to an early game (tailgate) meal. As part of my partnership with HEB and their Totally Texas line of products, I ...

Smoked Pork Loin & Peppers

The person who first said “Love has no bounds” would not love a regular roasted pork loin—at least not after they’ve tasted this beautiful smoked hog.

Braised Lamb Shanks

Cincinnati Chili–or Skyline Chili as it’s also known–usually combines sweet and fairly hot spices and is served atop a bed of spaghetti. The chili is then topped with cheese, beans, onions, or all of the above. All of the above is al...

Chicken à la Coke

Chicken à la King is a dish that our grandmothers used to make and every family member loved it. Chicken à la Coke is a dish we make for our fellow tailgaters and the Hungry Fans love it. Made with only the finest Coca-Cola from the local supermarket, Chicken à al Coke can fuel a crowd and quench...

Pumpkin Spice Hash

One of our favorite things in the whole wide world is when tailgaters, for earlier games, serve both breakfast and lunch. It’s so much fun to get there super early, brew up some high-test coffee and enjoy breakfast before we break out the wings, burgers, beer and other more traditional fangating ...

Spring and summertime means it’s time to get outdoors (finally!) and get grilling!

Oregon Duck Jambalaya

In the beautiful Pacific Northwest state of Oregon, there is a bitter rivalry that is fought in the last regular season game of the college football season.
