 Steady Roll Boogie

Travel-friendly tailgating appetizers score big on game day. When time is tight & you need a great tasting crowd pleaser look no further than Italian-Style Pinwheels. These irresistible bites are highly popular with football fanatics & for good reason. All of the fixin’s found in a hearty submarine sandwich are rolled up in these petite nibbles that not only taste great but offer eye-catching appeal. They’re also extremely easy to prepare. Stack on a cutting board or a simple white platter & add a little charm with some bunting or pennants for a delightful presentation. If traveling, be certain to follow my tips for packaging the pinwheels for a tailgate under the tent.

How To Package Travel-Friendly Tailgating Snacks

Fan-favorite appetizers are ideal to take to a tailgate under the tent.
Slice them ahead of time & stack rows of these irresistible treats in plastic containers with lids.
Top with a sheet of parchment paper & line ’em up again.

Go long ways & keep the huddle close for a snug fit.
Add one more piece of parchment paper before popping on the lid.
This defensive move will guard against a tackle in route.
The sandwich bites will look great without sacrificing the look.
