Did a search for food recipes, tailgate cuisine and nothing came up.

I love learning about and trying different food folks make from around the country.
I'll share many of mine.
Here is the first and it is simple to make.

Bacon / mushroom rice if you want to call it pilaf.

Plain white rice.
(Other type may work but never tried.)

Fry bacon, I prefer crispy / chewey.

Sautee mushrooms and onions.
(Pepeprs may work if desired as well,)

When rice is done, mix onions, diced bacon (and peppers)
with rice and it's done.

Be sure to add bacon last...don't want it to get soggy.

Easy, goes a long way and it's almost a meal in itself.
