Hey, everybody!! Have you heard?? Tailgating season is upon us!

Now, I do like to watch football, especially my Nebraska Cornhuskers, but I wouldn’t say that I am a fanatic or anything about watching every single NCAA or NFL game … BUT I am a tailgate FOOD FANATIC!

We attend several home games each year, and always have a big tailgate before the game with of course, lots of food, and typically some sort of signature drink.

Freaky Friday - Fall Edition 2016

When it came time for our Freaky Friday – Fall Edition blog hop — I went searching my assigned blog for one of two things, tailgate recipes or fall recipes.  It’s not mandatory that our recipes stick with the theme, but I sure like to try.

This round I was assigned Take Two Tapas, a blog hosted by my pal, Jennifer.  Jennifer’s love of noshing on all sorts of foods, instead of planning meals with the standard “one meat, one vegetable, one starch,” is what brought her blog to life. Jennifer shares recipes for smaller portioned plates, making delicious food with big flavors, but with smaller portions.  You will find all sorts of yummy salads, savory dishes to make a meal out of, soups to warm you,  and sweets to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling unsatisfied about your waistline.

You want to know the worst part about Jennifer’s blog?  Trying to decide what in the heck to make!  I had about 15 tabs open on my computer, I narrowed it down to about six, then decided on her Celebration Sliders with Roast Beef and Horseradish Sauce.  I can assure you though, that these Gingersnap Pecans and these Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cookies will be happening during the holidays, and her Puff Pastry Cinnamon Roll Bites with Vanilla Glaze and these yummy Fall Spiced Walnuts will be showing up at a morning tailgate this fall!

Baked Roast Beef Sliders with Horseradish Sauce - An Affair from the Heart

I made a batch of these sliders last weekend.  I planned to have them for lunch before my son headed back to college.  BUT — I didn’t read all of the instructions and didn’t realize that I had to refrigerate them for at least 4 hours before baking them.  He got a turkey bagel for the road, and we had these for dinner with a salad.  It made a bunch, so I took some up to my in-laws to try, too.  I followed Jennifer’s recipe almost 100% — I couldn’t find one of the cheeses she used, and I decreased the amount of Worcestershire sauce and Poppy seeds to our liking, but that was it!

Aren’t they yummy looking?!?!  They smelled heavenly, too!

Here they are before I baked them.  They come together really quick, thin sliced deli roast beef, Hawaiian rolls, bottled Horseradish sauce, 3 kinds of shredded cheese and a marinade with melted butter and a few basic spices.  Cover them up and let them refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight even, making them great for entertaining, because you can just pull them from the fridge and pop them in the oven about 30 minutes before you want to devour them.

Make sure you save this one – with all of the get-togethers that fall has to offer, you are sure to make good use out of a great recipe like this one!  Thanks for sharing it with me, Jennifer!

  4. Boy, what a great recipe choice! I bet the horseradish sauce is amazing with these sliders. I’ll be making these soon – thanks for mentioning that you need to refrigerate for several hours. I would’ve skipped over that as well πŸ™‚

  5. These look and sound delicious! I make something similar with turkey and swiss . What is the temperature of the oven? 350 degrees or 400 degrees? Can’t wait to make them!

  6. These looks so amazing! When you say horseradish sauce, is that different that the jarred horseradish? Just wondering, because I always have that around the house (I eat Bubbies horseradish right out of the jar!). I’m definitely going to make this!

    1. Rhianon, I used Kraft Horseradish Sauce. It looked like mayo kind of? Not straight horseradish. πŸ™‚

  7. I’ll admit that I am a bit of a food snob. Something really has to stand out and be absolutely delicious for me to give praise. I can say that more times then not the praise is going to a trained chef. Well I have to tell you that these scrumptious little sandwiches go to the top of my list for tastiness and mouthwatering goodness! Definitely worth the forethought of prepping the day before for any gathering and well worth the time it takes to put these little babies together!

    1. Wow! You just made my day. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It makes this all worthwhile. ❀️

    1. Typically I have made these for watch parties at home where I am close to my oven. If I make something like this at a tailgate, I bake it in those aluminum 9×13 pans, cover them with foil, and poke holes in the foil to let the steam escape. (helps with the moisture) Depending on how far you go to your tailgate, we warm things on our tailgate grill. The moisture is soaked in while they refrigerate, and they really aren’t soggy after you bake them. They disappear so quickly for us, they didn’t have a chance to be soggy! πŸ˜‰
