So who's it gonna be for the 2018 SEC Championship - UA v UGA?! As for us, well we are definitely a house divided, and we enjoy the banter on game day. We are originally from South GA, born and raised, but we moved to Birmingham back in 1997 and once we discovered Lewis Smith Lake, we never looked back. We are definitely Alabamians now, almost 22 years on Smith Lake and at least one of us is a full blown Tide fan. But, we do have a heart for the Georgia Bulldogs too, so we are torn by birthright indeed. Our son is a self-professed "Auburn Tiger" along with some other members of the family, so we've had 2 weekends in a row of game day division in the household. So... are you cheering for the Crimson Tide or are you a Dawg fan? The SEC Championship is a fun game to watch no matter what. Nothing we southerners love better than to good-spiritedly duke it out over football! And another thing we love to do on game day is EAT! It's always interesting to try a new recipe we can cook up quick, slap on the table, eat and get down to the more serious business of cheering on the team. This one can be done on the grill, or in an iron skillet on a stove, making this a very versatile recipe regardless of whether you are comfortably at home, or lucky enough to be in the action tailgating. Try it out! Recipe provided by our reader, Eric W. Bowman. Thank you Eric!
Serve with your favorite roasted veggies. We like to roast broccoli or fresh brussell sprouts with this kind of gourmet burger. Another favorite side is our special Smith Lake Smashed Potatoes. Finally, be sure to have either spicy pickled okra or our favorite Wickle's Pickles Dirty Dill Spears - just the right amount of heat to keep this dish as amped up as the game.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil.
ENJOY & get back to the game - there's a championship on the line! GO DAWGS & ROLL TIDE!!! And Super Bowl is coming up soon too. A lot of good football left. GO TEAM!
Lake Living at it's best!
