Thank goodness, football season is back. There’s just something so fun about gathering with your friends and family and cheering on your favorite team.
We don’t make it to the stadium for real tailgates often, but we do a pretty great home tailgate and watching party.
I know everyone has their favorite tailgate foods (queso!), but those pesky morning games can pose a challenge. What tailgate foods can you serve for breakfast? Well I created the perfect solution: breakfast 7 layer dip.
I am a dip girl, so it only made sense to seek out a breakfast dip for those morning gatherings.
And it was a HIT! I tried it out on my life group, and they loved it.
- 2 blocks of cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups blueberries, washed
- 2 cups washed and chopped strawberries
- 1 cup apricot jam
- 1.5 cups coconut flakes (I used unsweetened)
- 1.5 cups chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (don’t use the nasty “pancake syrup”- use the real stuff!)
- graham crackers or French toast sticks for dipping
There’s only one layer that involves prep, and it’s the base layer. Mix the cream cheese with the cinnamon and powered sugar.
Then layer the dip as follows:
- Cinnamon cream cheese
- Apricot Jam
- Coconut flakes
- Drizzle with maple syrup
Serve with graham crackers or French toast sticks. It’s a little “loose” of a dip after it sits because the fruit will give off some water, but it’s delish even if you make it ahead of time!
