BBQ Burgers are to be eaten anytime of year; rain, snow, heat or cold it doesn’t matter it’s all good. The beauty of my Rajun Cajun Burger is there are no limitations on what you can do with it. The condiments, choices, and decisions are endless (this recipe just happens to have the bite I enjoy).
Some people like their burgers simply plain or mild, while others pile all of the heat they can find onto theirs. The point being let your imagination go wild and have fun with one of the few foods that you can’t ruin, because there are no rules, just GREAT BURGERS!
This BBQ burger is called the Rajun’ Cajun Burger as it’s packed with so many flavors your mouth is going to do love you forever.
- 1 pound ground beef (80/20 – only 20% fat)
- 4 buns of your choice (I prefer a Kaiser)
- 1/4 cup spicy barbecue sauce
- 1 egg
- ½ cup red onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons bread crumbs (Preferably Panko)
- 1 tablespoon of your favorite Cajun seasoning
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1 teaspoon of your favorite Cajun seasoning
- lettuce and tomatoes
- 4 slices Jalapeno Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese
- spray on vegetable oil
- green chilies, or slice jalapenos (optional)
Preheat grill for high heat and clean the grates good. Mix the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, red onions, mustard, and 1 tablespoon Cajun Seasoning in large bowl. Form mixture into 4 patties. In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning into barbecue sauce.
Next, liberally spray grill oil and then cook patties for 4 minute per side or to desired doneness. During the last minute, place the cheese on burgers and top the cheese with the spicy barbecue sauce while still on grill.
While burgers are cooking during the last minute place your kaiser rolls onto the grill so you can toast them. Once burgers and toasted buns are done, remove them from the grill so that you can top the burger with your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.
