The Game Play:
- Place all your ingredients for The Secret Play for the Garlic and Onion Saute in a non-stick frying pan and cook on a low to medium heat setting, stirring continuously until the onions become soft to the touch and golden brown. (approximately 10 minuets.)
- Remove the pan from the heat and set to the side to cool.
- Once the Garlic and Onion Saute is cooled off, place inside a bowl, and add all the remaining ingredients for making the burger.
- Using your hands (after you have washed them with soap and water) mix all ingredients until they are fully incorporated.
- Make a large circle of the prepared meat, and cut into 4 equal portions*
Form each one into a flat circle.
- Fire up your grill and cook them according to your preference.**
- While cooking them, and after you have flipped the burger, place one to two pieces of Provolone Cheese on-top of each.
- Once cooked to your preference, remove the burgers from the grill and set aside.
Making the Pass:
- Prepare the Winning the call Spread by placing the ingredients into a small separate bowl and stirring until thoroughly mixed.
- Coat the top of the inside of each brioche bun with the Winning the Call Spread.
- Place on large Roasted Red Bell Pepper (RRBP) slice on the bottom of each brioche bun
- Place a layer of the cooked bacon on top of the RRBP
- Take your Touch-down Burgers and place on top of the bacon
- Layer some Iceberg Lettuce on top of the touch-down burger
- Next add a slice or two of tomato.
- And to complete the pass, top the burger off with the other half of brioche bun.
I'm sure that your friends and family will see and smell these enticing Touch-down Burgers and be on the sidelines cheering you on while you're cooking them.
