Friday Cowboys Tailgate: Your Favorite Food

Captain Morgan is sponsoring a series of posts on SB Nation about tailgating. I figure a Friday night is a respectable time to have a good ol' tailgate discussion. We'll still be covering the other Cowboys news, just consider this an extra post in our regular cycle. If you'd like to jump into a little tailgating discussion, feel free and make the jump below. If not, read kegbearer's excellent FanPost, you won't be disappointed.

When it comes to tailgating and food, I'm a traditionalist. I'm old school. Give me a burger, a dog, or maybe even a Polish sausage, and I'm good to go. Drop a handful of chips on the plate, give me a bottle of brew, and I'm thinking perfect tailgate food. Simplicity at its finest. But, that's probably pretty boring stuff to a lot of professional tailgaters.

Over at tailgating.com, they have recipes for all kinds of stuff. Want a tailgating breakfast? They got Egg In A Bag.

Ingredients:
2 heaping tsp meat (I use pre-cooked bacon, pre-cooked sausage and some ham)
2 heaping tsp cheese (Any kind will do, I use Mexican four cheese blend)
2 eggs
1 large (gallon size) Ziplock bag
Boiling water

Directions: Beat the eggs well. Add meat and cheese. Mix well. Pour mixture into Ziplock bag. Seal bag and place into lightly boiling water. Boil for 8-10 minutes, or desired doneness.

Maybe you're down with the seafood. Oysters anyone?

1 lb. butter melted & clarified
2 tbs. chopped garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
3 dozen oysters on the half shell

Open oysters and place on the half shell on the grill. Ladle butter mixture on top. When cooked sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese & bit of chopped parsley on each oyster. Serves 36.

So how 'bout it? Are you an old-school, simplistic tailgater like me when it comes to the food? Or do you like to do-it-up with all kinds of ingredients? I'm betting a Cowboys tailgate party is a good place to get some BBQ. What'cha got?
