    This one sounds like a winner I would love to taste and serve to my friends during a football game.....But let me ask you.  Did you hire a cardiologist to stand by to make sure your patrons made it home?

      Hospital is on the same block.  No need to worry about that one.

        I make a killer cheeseburger pizza, although I cheat by using Stop & Shop made pizza dough, it is actually pretty good in my opinion:
         
        - Let dough proof for about an hour, in the dark, covered with a little oil in the bowl
        - While proofing, I grill (3) 1/4 burgers on a really hot grill, rare, and just enough on each side to get some good grill marks and char.  Remove and rest to keep the juices from going everywhere.
        - After an hour, spread out the dough onto parchment, I prefer this to flour, less mess and the large sheets fit right onto my pizza stone.
        - Drizzle ketchup in a circular pattern on the dough, not as much as pizza sauce, but don't be shy either.
        - drizzle yellow mustard, less than the ketchup, but try to get it all around the pzza
        - rough chop and spread the cheeseburger pieces evenly, size doesn't really matter
        - top with strips (I prefer strips) of yellow or white american cheese, it HAS to be American to get that true cheeseburger flavor
        - into the oven, bottom rack on my 18" pizza stone, 475 degrees
        - rotate once, and finish when the cheese starts to bubble.  Careful, it cooks pretty fast in a hot oven.
        - Let rest 5 minutes, serve with extra ketchup, chopped pickles, red onion, tomatoes, even lettuce if you like.
         
        These are always a hit for sports parties and kids get togethers!

          Sounds good, but do you not fry up the bacon before putting it in the crockpot?

            I have to ask the same question, you don't put the bacon in raw do you? Do you mince the bacon up or leave in a strip for flavor and then pull it out before serving?

            How did your soup go over w/your customers?

              I cook the bacon first, then add it to the soup.  Sorry for the confusion.  Almost all of my crockpot soups go over very well.  Though, I only cook them once a week.

                Used to live with my girlfriend (now wife) only a few blocks away down toward the school! Where the hell were you back then!? (1989 to be more accurate). Heard they closed most of our hang out spots: Bucklands, Broadwells, Woodshed.  I hope at least Barney's and Lill's have survived. Love the Bacon Cheeseburger soup idea.  I am a big soup maker myself and love to work a soup around entree's.

                  Barney's & Lill's have not survived.  Lill actually just passed away within the year.  Oswego is very unoriginal as far as most food is concerned.  Either it's pizza/subs, chains, Chinese buffets, or the local Italian restaurants(which is your best bet for a nice, sit down meal).  The school stepped in and crushed the bar/Greek scene.  I was at Oswego State from 1988-1994 and when I graduated was just about the time it started to change.  Real sad for someone who was there during the good times and now owns a local/sports/college bar during the changing times.

                    Darned shame. 
                    My wife went in the day when you could call cab and have them deliver beer and Taco Bell to your dorm!

                    Lill's was such a great bar with the dog at the bar and Lill's game rules on the wall.

                    I was hanging with some new friends at Barney's on my first visit to Oswego and one of those new friends is now my wife!

                    Here's to the old Oswego and to your success!

                      Hello All,
                      Jabberr811, this sounds great.  My daughter and her hungry
                      husband eat supper every Friday at our house, and I am
                      always trying to come up with something good and different
                      for them to eat.  My wife has tired out of trying to feed them
                      something new, but this sounds great!!!
                      Thanks.
                      Take Care,
                      Fieldthistle

                          I just visited your web site. Quite a Draft Beer Selection! I'm impressed. Never heard of some of them.
                           
                          I don't know if you can get it in your area, but Straub Beer, www.straubbeer.com is a terrific brew! Made in St. Marys, PA, not too far from you. It has no Preservatives in it. Great taste . Comes in kegs, cans & bottles. Try it if you can find it.

                          Gotta ask----What's a FRIP?????

                              jabber811, sounds really good.

                              Sounds like a nice cold weather soup, perfect for this time of year in Oswego, when folks would want to light up the grill but weather doesn't really permit that to happen. Cheeseburger in a soup. Mext, you need to try to figure a way to do clams and salt potatoes - a CNY summer staple :o)

                              So cool to know that a restauranteur in Oswego is thinking of new and unique menu items. Youre right - Oswego pubs tend to play it safe with typical CNY fare. As a Syraucse native and regular visitor to CNY (since my entire family - and wife's -is still in CNY), I hope to get a chance to give your culinary creations a try.  Next trip - your place in place of Rudy's. Thanks for sharing!

                                How many servings come out of that crockpot?

                                  RedJim64 - I use a 6-quart crockpot, so my guess would be around 20-24.
                                   
                                  Foodbme - Frips are ripple looking potato chips that are deep fried.  Sadly, they are made by McCain's.  We took over on Sept 1, 2007 are trying to change the menu to mostly fresh/homemade items.  These sell really well and I'm not sure I can take them off the menu.
