Week three of the Nebraska Cornhuskers schedule brings the UCLA Bruins to Lincoln. Fans of the Bruins were in Omaha over the summer watching their baseball team win The College World Series. Now they will experience Memorial Stadium and all it has to offer. Being the great hosts we are, we should invite them to tailgate with us, so let’s cook up something good.
2 pounds hamburger
1 onion finely chopped
1 tomato diced
16 oz guacamole
8 slices monty jack cheese
1 tablespoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 hamburger buns
Combine hamburger, onion, oregano, salt, and pepper in bowl and form patties. In a separate bowl combine guacamole and tomato. Cook burgers 6-8 minutes each side or until juices run clear. Add cheese and cover grill for 1 minute. Put buns on grill to toast.
Remove burgers and buns from the grill. Top burgers with the guacamole and tomato mixture and serve.
Now that we have the food taken care of it’s time to decide on a good beverage to match. We are going to keep it simple this week. Go with Dos Equis Amber. It’s a refreshing full flavored lager that will compliment the Bruin Burgers.
Now we need to get the music started. Again, the playlist is completely your call, but we have a good song to get things started. The Huskers will be wearing their alternate black uniforms, you should be decked out in black to support them, and ACDC’s “Back In Black” should be blaring from your speakers. Enjoy the grub, drinks, music, and of course the game.
