Unlike the pressure, the stress, and the formalities involved in planning a dinner party, it tends to be quite the opposite when planning a tailgate party at a football game. Relax is the operative word for a tailgate party. What the two parties have in common is that you can use luscious gourmet appetizer recipes, make the appetizers, and offer them to your guests. At a tailgate party, however, the accompanying beverage will more than likely be beer or soda so saltier gourmet appetizer recipes are what you would want to seek out.
For some, the thought of gourmet appetizer recipes suggest that “gourmet” means formal. This really isn’t the case especially when planning a tailgate party. When looking for gourmet appetizer recipes, it’s best to look for one that is easy to make and can be eaten with fingers without requiring utensils. Also, it’s also best to prepare these recipes from home and not in the parking lot or park where you’re having your party.
As with any gourmet appetizer recipe you select for a special occasion, or just an informal gathering with friends, you want to select one you think may stand out in a party yet is easy to make. Artichoke Fritters would be one gourmet appetizer in particular that will tantalize any tailgater’s taste buds and are extremely easy to make. All that is required is artichokes, lemon juice, flour, baking powder, salt, water, egg whites, and club soda. These are all very easy portable ingredients that you could get to any tailgate party and the overall preparation of the fritters should not take any more than 30 minutes. The overall preparation time is extremely important at a tailgate party because they typically revolve around some type of sporting event so time is of the utmost importance.
So, the next time you plan on having a tailgate party check out the gourmet appetizer known as the artichoke fritters.
