Are you ready for some football? I know that we have been counting down the days until tailgate season here in Florida. Not only is it a great excuse for a backyard BBQ or party, it means that cooler temperatures are on the way! We basically have two seasons in Florida: spring and summer. Fall can be still warm but cooler than normal. It’s a nice break from the near 100-degree weather and humidity. We stopped by our neighborhood Publix to stock up on Dr Pepper and Johnsonville products to create the ultimate tailgate table: loaded bratwursts paired with Dr Pepper!
Publix had everything that I needed. Dr Pepper products were in the soda aisle while Johnsonville bratwursts can be found frozen near the meat or perhaps in the freezer area. My store has them in two places. You can also save when you shop with this coupon!
Dr Pepper is the one that fans crave! It is the perfect complement to tailgating and home-gating events during the College Football season.
It was a refreshing beverage to pair with our fully loaded bratwursts. Get ready to re-create this at your next tailgate or at home. It’s easy and full of flavor!
We started with Johnsonville products. They’re easy to grill! We set up a table with all the fixings including shredded cheese, marinated peppers, ketchup, mustard, and relish.
To make your own marinated peppers, we used red, yellow, and bell peppers with fresh garlic, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
A bratwurst bar is perfect for all your guests since they can mix and match their favorite toppings.
To make them fully loaded, all you need a little bit of EVERYTHING!
