SWEET TOOTH

The Perfect (Dessert) Burger Recipe

And just like that, football’s back!

The week started off in Iowa where I got to see my best friend, another friend get married, spend time with my parents and experience my first Fantasy Football auction draft. (Fingers crossed I end the season with yet another Fantasy Football title.) To top off the week, I got a glimpse into #BroncosCountry last night at the #NFLKickOff: #KickOff2016!

NFL Kick Off

A bit surreal to be at an actual NFL hosted event. We saw One Republic perform a few songs then headed to the Tavern to catch the game. Still cannot believe he missed that kick. What a game! Tomorrow, the Hawkeyes host the Cyclones in Iowa City so you can find me in black & gold.

Regardless of what colors you’ll be sporting over the weekend and football season, we all have one thing in common: tailgating.

What role do you play at a tailgate? Tailgate host? Grill master? Bartender? Bags champion? Buffalo chicken dip maker? Socializer? Photographer?

Today I’m sharing a recipe that will deem you as “burger master” – say hello to the perfect dessert burger recipe. These bite size burgers are sure to be crowdpleaser.
