Before the game or during a period break, be sure to keep grumbling tummies away with delicious build-your-own sliders or larger burgers.
It's simple to put together and allows everyone to pick their own toppings and enjoy a filling dinner. Serve it with crisps or fries, and everyone will feel like they're out at a live game.
Blogger Tonya Staab of Create - Celebrate - Explore loves to make serve-yourself bars when she has lots of kids in the house. She's also experimented with burger bars and says, "I like to keep things fairly simple with my food bars but still give quite a few options, especially for picky eaters."
She recommends including these great items:
The best thing about a burger bar is that you can slice up the salad items ahead of time and lay out almost all of your needed items before guests arrive. Be sure to have a long serving table with plates, napkins, food trays, condiments, the buns and serving utensils ready to go. Then just pull out your pre-cut salad items when it's time to eat. You can also grill your hamburgers ahead of time and keep them warm in the oven so that no one has to miss a minute of the hockey action!
The key to a great slider station is to have everything laid out and easy to reach, while a variety of items makes it fun for everyone to build burgers to their own tastes.
OK, so we're taking a little bit of liberty here and renaming the humble hamburger a "hockey puck," but really, if you're grilling them on the barbecue, then the charcoal-black, round shapes will remind the keenest hockey fans of their beloved puck. If you want to get creative, press a large ring of white onion into one side of the hamburger to resemble the white graphic often seen on hockey pucks.
Serving size 8 hamburgers or 16 sliders
