Tailgating Recipes, Tiger Style

It only takes one tailgate in Baton Rouge to recognize how passionate LSU Tiger fans are, not only about their football, but also about their tailgate parties...and more specifically, the food served at these parties!  With tents full of smokers, full-sized BBQ pits, ice chests, flat-screen TV's, fans, games and menus planned weeks to months in advance, LSU fans provide unbelievable amounts of food and hospitality, even to fans of opposing teams.

Entire cookbooks have been dedicated to Cajun-style cooking and tailgate recipes, so we thought we'd share just a few of our favorites!

- Cook bacon in large pan over medium heat. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add onion and garlic to hot pan. Cook 8 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in tomatoes, fennel and thyme. Cook 5 minutes.
- Add rice, chicken stock, ham and cooked bacon. Mix well and bring to boil. Cover and cook for 15 minutes in oven.  (I did not cook this in the oven, I covered the pan, turned down the heat to medium for a gentle simmer, and allowed it to continue simmering on top of the stove).
- Add shrimp and peppers to pan. Mix and add hot pepper sauce.
- Cover and return to oven (or continue on top of stove), continue cooking for 8 - 10 minutes.
