As fall approaches, it’s time to get your tailgating game on, and introduce a new items to augment the burgers and hot dogs.

Side Delights from the Fresh Solutions Network, San Francisco, have a variety of potato products suitable for innovative and healthy tailgating dishes, from fresh-cut and potato kits to grill-ready Grillables, according to a news release.

The company’s recipe page has suggestions such as the California Avocado Tri-Color Potato Salad.

Not going to the game? Fresh Solutions Network President and CEO Kathleen Triou said “homegating” is a popular pre-game activity.

“Tailgating has extended into the backyard and the living room, and elevating the dishes prepared is now the key to a successful tailgate,” Triou said in the release. “What used to only be burgers, beers and a baked potato, is now wine, steak, and gourmet potato side dishes.”
