Recipe by Chef shapeweaver �
I had a couple of leftover hamburger patties from Cajun Beef Burgers by Becky in Wisconsin and really didn't want to reuse them the same way, so I came up with this recipe. If your try this,please feel free to change the amount of seasonings according your tastes.If you use regular hamburger patties add about 1 1/2 teaspoons of any type of Cajun Seasoning to the recipe, I recommend Cajun Seasoning.Submitted to Food.com (a.k.a.
