This recipe is being posted for ZWT II & my source is cookinglouisiana.com. I love the intro! ... "Here in South Louisiana we're always taking the usual & making it unusually good. Homemade hamburgers are subject to this treatment! We'll twist this one up some & see if we can make our taste buds smile the Cajun way!" (Time does not include refrigeration time)

Directions

  1. Remove sausage from the casing & combine both meats in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients & mix well. Let the mixture rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hr for seasonings to "work".
  2. Form hamburger patties as usual & make them about 3/4" larger than the bun. The burgers will shrink, so doing this will give you a "bun-fitting" hamburger patty.
  3. Cook hamburgers on high heat on ea side for about 1 minute. Then finish them on a med low heat till done (An internal temp of 160F is recommended by the USDA).
  4. When done, spray them on both sides w/a water mist & sprinkle a little salt on them. Serve immediately.
  5. If not serving immediately, put the patties in a pan w/only enough water to cover the bottom. Keep them covered so they don't dry out. Doing all of this will give you a slightly moister hamburger patty.
