Posted by coltsindianapolis on November 30, 2013 – 2:22 pm

The Colts and Indiana Pork have partnered in search of the best pork tailgate recipe in all of Colts Nation, and guess who is in charge of it? Yours truly! We’re going to be searching for the best pork tailgate recipes you have to offer. This week’s  winner is Lori Frazee from Dunnellon, FL. This recipe sounds quick, easy and SUPER delicious! Now personally, I’m a BIG advocate for pork burgers. It’s not too common, but it provides a whole new level of juiciness that’s hard to achieve with beef burgers. Here is Lori’s recipe for “I Dig Pig Burgers.”

I Dig Pig Burger
1# ground Pork, seasoned with season salt, pepper and 1/4 cup chipotle salsa, mix through
8 slices pepper jack cheese
4 slices bacon
Divide ground pork into 4 balls, divide the balls in half and place one piece of cheese in the middle and form patty
Wrap bacon around the patty and secure with toothpick
Grill until almost cooked through, top with a little more chipotle salsa and add additional piece of cheese, finish cooking , cheese should be perfect and bacon will add to the smokiness of the Salsa. Serve on a Kaiser roll. The only thing that would add to this , would be top with a boneless rib, Then I’m getting my pork on!!

Lori will receive a prize pack consisting of a $75 Meijer gift certificate, Bacon Nation Cookbook, Indiana Pork Apron, Colts hat, Colts yearbook and Colts 2012 Season DVD. PLUS she will be entered into the grand prize which is the Traeger Lil’ Pig Grill.

This is the GRAND PRIZE!!
