House of Xtravaganza Double Cheeseburger by Will Coleman

For this year’s big game, I was inspired to create something unconventional but still classic. I played around with all the usual components – the bun, cheese, bacon and condiments – taking them to the next level. Life’s a little more fun when you break the rules, and this double cheeseburger does just that. With double the cheese, a juicy patty stacked with sweet and spicy candied bacon and tomato jam, this is the perfect burger for tailgating.

I once came across the internet’s recent obsession with “pasta chips“, I was instantly inspired to bring my biggest nacho dream to life – lasagna nachos, with all the trimmings.

This crispy, saucy nacho dish is perfect for those days when you feel like changing up your usual weeknight dinner or impressing. Not only is this recipe incredibly simple, but there’s also tons of room to be flexible, as it’s completely customizable to your preferences.
