When my husband and I were dating, we’d go to a lot of football games at our old alma mater, Colorado State University, together.


We’d act like we were in college again – tailgating for hours before the game in the Hughes Stadium parking lot.

The only big difference, of course, was that now that we were older, the food and beer were markedly better than back in college days (funnily enough, my husband and I always lived within two blocks of each other at CSU, and had a lot of friends who knew each others friends, but we never met while there!)



These honey whiskey caramelized onions are so delicious - perfect for burgers and sandwiches!



Of all the things we’d make, my favorite was always our friend Dave’s honey whiskey onions.

We’d make them and put them in breakfast burritos, on burgers, brats, or sandwiches.


These burgers are so delicious and full of flavor - you can't get enough!


And I would always eat about half of them straight from the pan!

They are the most delicious onions ever- and you burn off the whiskey in the pan, so no need to worry much about getting tipsy from these.
