Football Friday Tailgate Recipe: Tailgate Crack

When you are busy getting ready for tailgate season you need a great simple and go-to recipe.  This is a super simple recipe and fits the bill. I cannot wait to try this. Andy got the recipe from his wife and just started making them with her supervision.  Lot 3 gave them their name “Tailgate Crack”.

The Recipe:

What you need:

  • 1 package of cocktail weiners
  • 1 package of bacon (do not get the thick-sliced)
  • Brown sugar


  • Cut the bacon strips into thirds. One pack of bacon will equal 1 pack of weiners.  Again, don’t get thick-sliced bacon.
  • Place wrapped wieners in a 13×9 baking pan and cover wieners in brown sugar.
  • Bake at 350º for about an hour.

On The Menu

See you next Friday for week three of the Football Friday Tailgate Recipe. Up next week we have a treat coming for you from a Florida State family. However, the recipe has more Nashville ties and more specifically a link to the band, Paramore.
