Today I am posting with some blogging friends for Tailgate Party recipes. Can you believe football season is already upon us? Just Thursday night they had the first game of the preseason.

And next Thursday I’ll be glued to my seat watching the GB Packers play the Eagles.

It will be a celebration of sorts.  One that as a food blogger I always enjoy celebrating with food and drink. Being a Packer Backer, ours usually involves some form of bratwurst and/or cheese. And my husband and I being from beer producing towns, St. Louis and Milkwaukee,  respectively, a bit of hop-filled libations is in order.  (Make sure you join me on Aug. 29th for my recipe for Honey Jalapeno glazed beer brat kebabs!)

But for this week, the recipe is all about sliders- and one of my favorites too! Pastrami as a reuben sandwich,  baked as a pan of mini bites.

What will you be making for your team’s first game of the season?

Let  me know in the comments below.

Pastrami Reuben SlidersJoin me tomorrow when I post with Sunday Supper. The theme is about Back to school hot lunch ideas. I have my recipe for broccoli and cheese soup, which is one I have loved for years and copied from the soup served at the old Whole Loaf Deli at 10th and Olive streets in downtown St. Louis many moons ago.

That soup goes great with just  about any sandwich you can think of. I hope you will join  me then!

  1. You already know what you’re posting on the 29th?!?! WOW! And these sliders look so good. My grandma is a Packers fan as well. She is Kenosha and once you get the cheese, beer and sausages in your blood it seems you can’t get them out 😉 These sliders look delicious and I’ll have to make them for her when my Steelers play your Packers in November.

  2. I love you put French fried onions in this slider. This really is perfect tailgate and game day food! We’re really not big football fans. I’d make this for when we watch a NASCAR race. They look delicious.
