Three Pittsburgh-Approved recipes to kickoff Labor Day and Football Season!


Kraft Heinz sponsored this post, but the opinions are my own.

Ahhhh do you feel that? It’s August and football is in there air – FINALLY. Pre-season games, fantasy football drafts and lots of time scoping the player lists on social media. Is that new rookie for the Black and Gold ready to perform like a Yinzer?

While most moms are in back-to-school mode (ok, we are a little too), I am in homegating mode. That means getting ready for a football season of fun at home – from food to the perfect attire to some new props (like our blow up football doll last year).

The best part about Labor Day coming means it’s acceptable to eat again – no more bikini season – and eat we shall!


It’s never too early to start prepping new tailgating/homegating recipes – it’s seriously my favorite time of year, especially when I can incorporate lots of hometown Heinz products into the mix. With all our traveling this summer, we’ve has access to lots of Walmarts along the way, so we picked up some fun items and food staples to recreate and prep for football season this week (no complaints here!). So to kickoff our favorite time of year, here are three new recipes that are Pittsburgh approved for homegating 2017 (plus I picked these because they’re PERFECT for outdoor picnics and tailgating too with all our outdoor travels!).
