The leaves are starting to change and there’s a cool crisp in the air… you know what that means! It’s finally autumn!

If there’s one thing that says autumn it’s tailgating grub and football! Being a proud Pittsburgh native, I’m quite an expert when it comes to game day food (Go Steelers!).

Even if you’re following a Keto diet, you can still enjoy some of the most amazing food. Here are links to the best Keto tailgating recipes!

This is one of my all time favorite tailgating recipes and it was created by yours truly — me! While this was originally added as a casserole, it is easily served up as a dip as well. So grab some pork rinds, and let’s dig in!

Chipotle. Chicken. Bacon. The holy trinity if you ask me. How could you go wrong? These are amazing. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it is also dairy-free. It can be tough to find a really great appetizer without it dripping in cheese, but these Chipotle Chicken Bacon Bites fit the bill!

Hot Wings are a tradition at any tailgate event and are a real crowd pleaser! Sometimes people go a little crazy with exotic wing flavors, but I am totally a traditional hot wings kinda guy.
