Grilled Chili Burgers

READY IN: 8hrs 12mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You may use mild or spicy Italian sausages, plan ahead the patties must be chilled for a minimum of 8 hours or 24 hours before grilling, chili sauce can be found next to the ketchup in any major grocery store, I use Heinz brand for this --- these burgers will remain red while grilling so for proper cooking time it is best to use an instant-read thermometor

FANTASTIC. What a flavorful and easy burger. This was so tastey and moist. I topped with cheddar and swiss and fresh garden tomaotes. Thanks Kitten for another WINNER!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Mix using clean hands until combined.
  3. Shape into 8 balls then flatten into patties (or make 6 larger patties).
  4. Place the patties onto a large plate/s.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8-24 hours.
  6. Set grill to high.
  7. Using your finger press a hole into the middle of each patty almost to the bottom but not all the way through (this will prevent the burgers from puffing up into a meatball shape while cooking).
  8. Grill the patties about 5-6 minutes on each side for the smaller patty (cooking time will vary, depending on the thickness of your burger).
  9. Serve on buns with favorite condiments.
