This authentic recipe is from my hometown of Houma, LA (about 70 miles south of New Orleans). This is great for just about any occasion. Don't let the name fool ya, this burger is to die for.

We really liked these burgers. As others have mentioned, it seemed like too much meat for only two servings. We made six burgers, to serve three people, and it was just right. I especially liked the sauteed mushrooms and onions on top. Definitely a do-over recipe for us!

Gotta give props to a fellow Louisianian (I'm from Baton Rouge)! The gravy reminds me of a roast beef po-boy, this makes your recipe authentic New Orleans! I would use more spice but otherwise it's a great recipe. WHO DAT!!

Not bad, though in the end, it is just a burger.
