It’s tailgate season and I have a fantastic new recipe for Bacon Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese Cups that is perfect for any game day party.
We’ve been watching a lot of football games this season. Our team isn’t having that great of a season, but we’ve been enjoying ourselves anyway. We tailgate at home games and homegate while watching the team when they are away. We take turns hosting homegates with our friends. Last week was our turn and I created a fun football party tablescape. We had the chips and salsa, cupcakes, and peanuts. I purchased the table cover and napkins at the store but created my own food picks. You can grab the football toothpick toppers here.
I had a request to make macaroni and cheese, but I was quick to dismiss it because finger foods are the easiest. Then I thought that I should bake macaroni and cheese in muffin tins to create a handheld food. Plain old macaroni and cheese seemed boring, so I elevated it with bacon and jalapenos.
I love this simple macaroni and cheese recipe. It is made by boiling evaporated milk with water and elbow macaroni. The cheese is added directly to the pot without draining the liquid off the cooked pasta. This means you do not have to create a roux. I always seem to mess up when making a roux, so I prefer this much easier version.

Everyone raved about these macaroni cupcakes. They disappeared quickly. My family has been begging me to make it again. I love the flavor that the jalapeno added, but not the heartburn that resulted. Deal with frequent heartburn caused by tailgreatness and other foods with Nexium® 24HR. Don’t get taken out of the game by frequent heartburn this season. Just one pill of Nexium® 24HR* a day gives you all-day, all-night protection.*Use as directed. May take 1-4 days for full effect.
How do you tailgate or homegate?
