Heat 5 to 6 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 large diced onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the ingredients for four to five minutes, and then refrigerate the onions together with the bacon and garlic. Clean and prepare 2 tablespoons of fresh oregano and 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme, and refrigerate them as well.

At the tailgate, heat a skillet over a medium-hot grill. Add all the ingredients you prepared earlier to the pan with 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds. Stir the ingredients often until the pasta starts to brown, about 15 to 18 minutes. Mix in 1 quart of non-fat or low-fat plain yogurt, and then serve with a garnish of sumac and yogurt.

To make the deviled eggs, hard boil 1 dozen eggs, and remove their shells. Cut the eggs in half, and scoop out the yolks. Blend the yolks with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons of mango chutney and 1/8 teaspoon of ground red pepper until smooth. Spoon the mixture back into the egg whites, season them with kosher salt, and garnish them with diced chives.
