Football season is coming, and you know what that means: time to pull out your best tailgate recipes. If you need some new dishes in your arsenal, or if cooking isn’t your thing and you need a little help getting started, here are the top four apps with delicious recipes to help you be the life of the party.
Barbeque Recipes Created by Floreo Media LLC, this app costs $3.99 up front, but it’s worth it. Just think: corn on the cob dripping with butter, hamburgers grilled just right, and tender babyback ribs. With this app, you can learn to cook all of it! The app not only teaches you the best way to barbeque different meats—it has dozens of barbeque sauce recipes. And when your guests ask for the recipe, you can share it via email or social media with just the press of a button.
Tailgate Party Recipes 500 recipes for $1.99? What a bargain! This app contains some of the user-friendliest recipes out there, providing an ingredient list, step-by-step directions, and a photo of what the finished product should look like. You can use the app even if you’re not online, bookmarking recipes and adding notes to remind yourself if you made any tweaks.
How To Make Nachos This simple app is the top-selling nacho app of all time. It includes recipes for more or less any kind of nachos you could think of: jerk chicken nachos, skillet nachos, healthy nachos, and more. Even the pickiest eaters will find something delicious in this $0.99 download. If you want to spice up your tailgate (or just your weekday dinner) even further, a nacho cheese dispenser can pair with these nacho recipes to add a little extra flair.
Food Network In the Kitchen So you know how to barbeque meat and make nachos… but no party is complete without dessert. While Food Network’s free app has a variety of recipes, their dessert recipes—from well-known chefs such as Alton Brown, Guy Fieri, and Bobby Flay—really take the cake. Learn to cook as-seen-on-TV recipes by watching step-by-step videos. You can even create your own recipe collection, save the ingredients to your notes app, and share with friends as you shop for the party.
