Sports fans, football season is upon us. While the players are readying themselves to sweat it out on the field, we must tackle the issue of what to serve at the tailgate parties. Will you keep it simple or go all out? See what other fans do before you get started planning the menus, then decide which kind of pigskin party you want to throw.

There are those who definitely keep it simple. Hoisting a cooler of beverages from the truck and tossing a quilt or blanket onto the ground pretty much covers your setup. A football is thrown around while the food is prepared buffet-style out of the back of the truck, station wagon, SUV or trunk. Quick and easy is the menu theme
