Owens Sausage and Ground Beef Backyard Burgers

This recipe was included in an ad in my local paper. It sounded so good that we had to try it. We used Owens rolled sausage since I had the coupon. It was great, but I'm sure other sausage brands would work too! The recipe originally said to make 8 patties, but they ended up so small that I decided next time I will make 6 larger patties. We used regular flavored sausage, but my husband and I love spicy food, so I can't wait to try this recipe using hot flavored sausage. Be sure to have all your favorite burger toppings on hand like lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, etc.**Update - made these patties for the 4th of July and used 96/4 extra lean hamburger since the sausage is so "fatty". Doubled the recipe and made 12 patties. They came out just the right size. Huge hit with all the guests! Many tried to guess the "secret ingredient" and were amazed when I told them it was breakfast sausage mixed with the beef.

I just made these and cooked them on the grill with hickory chips WOW they are great. What do you call this kind of burger? Please let me know what they are called so I can tell my friends.

This was pretty tasty. But if I'm craving a hamburger, this is not what I would have in mind. Basically tastes like a sausage patty. Might have more subtle flavor if it were 2 parts beef to one part sausage.

The family loves these, I cant find the Owens Sausage by us so I used the Jimmy Deans Premium sausage (not the regular Jimmy Deans big difference in the taste) a little extra parmesan cheese and they are the bomb.
