Tailgating Recipes: Jaymee’s Authentic Eats

Posted by Dave On December - 29 - 2011

It’s amazing the information that is floating out there on Twitter. (Pssst… Shameless plug. Feel free to follow us on Twitter: @TailgatingIdeas) Earlier this evening we got a mention from Jaymee Sire on Twitter (go ahead and follow her too: @JaymeeSireCSN) alerting us to check out her blog on food with a special emphasis on tailgating recipes. Did we mention that Jaymee is a sports reporter/anchor for Comcast Sports Network Bay Area and is rather easy on the eyes?

So let’s reiterate some things here. Attractive young lady who knows sports and gets paid to talk about them on TV who loves to cook and shares tailgating recipes. Seriously? Did someone just read the “wants” list of any single tailgater’s online dating profile and create this gal in their basement like in the movie Weird Science?

Stuffed Bacon Cheese Burger

After taking a look at Jaymee’s recipes we could not help ourselves but to share one of them in particular with you all and encourage you check out her other tailgating recipes. The one that caught our eye was the I/O bacon cheeseburgers. Here is her recipe (with permission of course)

What you will need:

  • Ground 80/20 chuck or sirloin (figure 1/4 to 1/3 pound per burger)
  • Seasoning salt (click here for an easy, homemade recipe)
  • Pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce (about a tablespoon per four burgers)
  • Cooked, crumbled bacon (about a slice per burger)
  • Sliced or crumbled white cheddar cheese (about a 1/2 pound per four burgers)
  • Hamburger buns
  • Burger condiments/toppings

In a bowl, season ground beef with pepper and your favorite seasoning salt (or just regular salt if you don’t have any). Sprinkle with about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce per pound of meat. Mix together using your hands (don’t over mix).

Separate meat into twice as many patties as you plan to make. (i.e. if you are making four hamburgers, make eight patties). On half of them, pile with cheese and cooked, crumbled bacon.

Cover filled patty with a plain patty and press together at the edges to seal. If taking to a tailgate, put the patties in a large tupperware container or a large aluminum pan for easy transport.

Grill burgers over medium heat, about 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and cheese is melted inside. Serve with whole wheat hamburger buns and your favorite burger toppings and enjoy the delicious surprise awaiting you in the middle!

Simple yet delicious and how can you beat a good old fashioned burger at a tailgate party? Thanks Jaymee for letting us share your recipe and we would encourage all of our readers to check out Jaymee’s tailgating recipes page called Authentic Eats.
