Game Changer

Prepare a recipe of Game Day Brioche Rolls. Divide the chicken mixture into about 4 dozen patties, cook in an oiled hot cast iron skillet & serve as a slider option.

2 lbs ground chicken
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
3 large garlic cloves, pressed
1 jalapeno, minced
1/4 cup tequila
1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
6 hamburger buns
Smashed Avocado * Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise * Pico De Galo

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl; shape into 6 patties. Grill over medium-high heat {350 to 400 degrees} 7 to 8 minutes per side or until a thermometer registers 165 degrees. Serve on buns with accoutrements.

The Extra Point

Get grill-ready by pre-forming chicken burgers up to 2 days ahead. Stack in zip top plastic bags, placing parchment paper between burgers & refrigerate. Grab the bags before heading out the door & transport in your cooler.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lime zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to dips & spreads. Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstick
The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
