“Here's a great recipe for a burger to wow the tailgating crowd, or for any gathering of friends/family. The topping has tangy zing to it, and the hamburger mixture is made with some ingredients you don't usually see in the mix. Aged cheddar or a smoked provolone cheese will add the final touch to this new twist on the standard hamburger. Goes great with baked beans, corn, or any of your usual tailgating side dishes.”
