Hopefully by now, the football team you’re rooting for is leading a strong season towards the play-offs. Stakes are getting higher so you might agonize about how your team will do, but there’s no need to fret over what tailgating foods to make. Come, we’ve drafted a stress-free game plan for hosting success starting bright and early with breakfast foods to keep everyone fueled throughout the morning.

Below, we’ve rallied a few of our favorite recipes that are easily adaptable, require minimal effort, or can be made ahead of game day. Keep the coffee flowing (a supply of OJ and seltzer can’t hurt either) so that once breakfast is ready, friends can serve themselves. You won’t miss the next play.

leftovers are your allies

Be creative with what’s left in the fridge, and bonus points for being able to cook meals in a single pan for direct serving. Offer your favorite breads on the side for toast or sandwich-making.

bake now, enjoy later

Our favorite baked goods are the ones that can be made ahead of time (and even taste better the next day), or stored in the fridge overnight for popping in the oven first thing in the morning.
