It's Football Friday! This is a HUGE weekend in college football. I am packed and ready to head down to the game bright and early tomorrow morning!
Burgers are great tailgating food, but sometimes it isn't convienent to grill burgers. Maybe you don't have a grill to tote to the parking lot, or you just don't want to deal with the hassle of it all. We've grilled burgers twice this year, and it is a lot of work. This recipe will satisfy your burger craving without the grill. Simply mix up the hamburger meat, roll it up in some refrigerated pizza dough and bake. Couldn't be simpler or tastier!!
I created this recipe for the Seneca Crispy Onions Gridiron Challenge. Seneca Snacks invited food bloggers to create football friendly recipes with their new Crispy Onions. In case you haven't heard of the new Seneca Crispy Onions, they are sweet, cripsy, salty, toasted onion strips. I like to snack on them right out of the bag! They are also great on burgers, soups or topping a juicy steak. They would also be a great addition to the Thanksgiving green bean casserole.
