Easy Hamburger Recipe for a College Football Game Party

During the fall, just about every sports fan in the United States anticipates the beginning of the new college football season. So, if you’re like me, you tend to spend your Saturday afternoons in front of a television somewhere watching your alma mater (or your other favorite universities) compete against their arch rival schools. And, of course, during this time, you may even be thinking of inviting some of your friends over to you house or apartment to witness these fiercely contested collegiate battles that takes place during each and every week of the season.

Usually, when you have a busy schedule like mine and you want your friends to come over to watch the game with you, you typically won’t have time to prepare all the food, let alone go shopping for the all ingredients you’d need. So what can you do to throw a great party yet make your workload much easier?

Well what you could do is just opt for the easy way out – buy ready-made food from a restaurant either by take out or delivery. But the problem with this is that you can never be sure if the food you ordered is fresh and filled with good ingredients. Also, the food you ordered could already be cold and soggy by the time you run to the restaurant and back for take out. You also could encounter a problem if you have your food delivered such as the driver not being able to locate your house or delivering a wrong order. And if this happens, your hungry friends wouldn’t be too happy with you to be sure.

So, to do away with all of the disadvantages of eating restaurant-bought food while at the same time, leaving time for you to have fun with your friends, you can simply have a build-a-burger barbeque party. All the ingredients that you would need for this party are easy to buy and you don’t have to spend too much time in preparing them. It’s also guaranteed that all the food you would serve in this party is made fresh and with good ingredients. On top of all that, you and your friends will have more time to drink and relax while you all keep an eye glued to the big screen.

For your build-a-burger barbeque party there are a ton of great hamburger recipes that you could try but if you and your friends to heat things up while you enjoy the game and each other's company, then a good choice for you is the Jalapenos Burger following the hamburger recipe included below and which can also be found at This is surely a great tasting and healthy burger because aside from using lean ground beef, which cuts the fat content of the burger, it makes use of Jalapeno chilies, which gives you a lot of health benefits such as an increase in metabolism that can actually help with weight loss.
