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!
Keto Reuben Dip
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!
Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Meatballs
This recipe comes from Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food. If you’ve ever been to her site, you’ll quickly see that she’s an expert on low carb and gluten-free desserts. But, she also does savory pretty darn well, too. These Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Meatballs are sure to be a tailgating favorite at your next event!
Spicy Jalapeno Poppers
These have been in the low carb community for as long as I can remember, and for good reason. They’re DELICIOUS! While there are many variations on the recipe, this one from my buddy, Craig, is to die for! You have to check out these Spicy Jalapeno Poppers.
Chipotle Chicken Bacon Bites
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!
I don’t think a description is necessary, just look at that thing. A cheesy and meaty bowl of liquid pizza! Yeah, I’m totally into that. Get me a spoon.

Low Carb Portabella Sliders
How adorable are these Low Carb Portabella Sliders? You thought you could never have sliders again because of the buns…wrong! Mushrooms are the perfect substitute. They look great and would be a hit any tailgate feast!
5-Layer Keto Dip
This is one of those recipes that no one would ever suspect it was specifically made for a Keto diet. I love to serve this with a batch of my Crispy Cheddar Crisps. Just make sure you make enough for everyone!

Classic Buffalo Wings
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. These Classic Buffalo Wings from I Breathe Im Hungry are a familiar favorite that won’t disappoint! Do the damn thing and dip ’em in some ranch.
