Andouille & Beef Burgers With Blue Cheese

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bergy

This recipe is adapted from the July 06 Bon Appetit magazine - The recipe called for pickled Okra & watercress as garnishes - neither were available at this time so I left them out of the ingredient list. The burgers may be BBQ'd or pan fried - I give the instructions for pan frying. This is a delicious burger where each ingredient distinctively adds to the over all flavor - The pecans are a must. It goes into my favorite burger book

I made this burger awhile ago after seeing the recipe in Bon Appetit. Like others, I didn't use okra or watercress, but who needed them? The caramelized onions provided more than enough flavor. Loved the texture and taste of the pecans and the smokiness added by the andouille. Thanks for posting the recipe here, Bergy.
