Nebraska Cornhuskers vs South Dakota State: Recipe for Tailgate Success


It’s been a cold week in Husker Nation with all of the Bo Pelini audio talk. It seems like a good week to heat things up a bit. We are going to go with another burger this week, but inspired a bit by the Nebraska Cornhuskers opponent. As always, we should make our visitors feel welcome and invite them to the party. This recipe works if you are outside of Memorial Stadium or at home entertaining friends.

You Don’t Know Jack Burgers

2 pounds hamburger
2 jalapeno peppers diced
1 pound Bacon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 table spoon Italian seasoning
1 onion sliced
8 slices Pepper Jack cheese
8 hamburger buns

Combine hamburer, salt, jalapeno peppers, Italian seasoning and mix. Form into patties. Preheat grill and lightly brush olive oil onto grate. Put burgers on grill.

While meat is cooking, fry bacon. Saute onion in margarine or olive oil for 6 minutes. Flip burgers and cook another six minutes or until juices run clear. Add cheese then bacon to the burgers. Grill buns for one minute. Add onions to burgers and serve with condiments of your choice.

The meal is taken care of. Now it’s time for adult beverages. Obviously Jack Daniels is on tap today. Let’s go with some Lynchburg Lemonade. It will flow well with the burgers.

As always, we need a playlist that is fitting for a football game. After a loss like the Huskers suffered last week, some angry motivational music might be necessary. Let’s go with Eminem’s “Til I Collapse” to get things started. It’s up to you after that. Happy tailgating everyone.
