DIRECTIONS

  • Cajun Mayo:
  • Prepare the Cajun mayo by combining the mayo, Cajun seasoning, and BBQ sauce and stir. Taste and adjust (like your grandma always told you), then set aside.
  • Pre-Heat Grill on High.
  • Burgers:
  • Heat a small pan over medium high heat.
  • Add the pat of butter to the pan and melt.
  • Add the onions and sauté 2-3 minutes stir often.
  • Add the peppers and continue to sauté 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  • Remove the onion, pepper, garlic mixture from heat allow to cool (Stick it in the freezer if your stomach is growling!).
  • Put the onion mixture into a large non-reactive bowl.
  • Tear the hamburger into small pieces and place in the same bowl.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 of the tbsp of Cajun seasoning over the meat and mix gently but thoroughly with your hands. (No pockets of seasoning please!).
  • Sprinkle the remaining Cajun seasoning and remix careful to not over work the meat.
  • Form into patties slightly larger than your buns.
  • Grilling:
  • Place the burgers on the grill and listen to it sear the meat.
  • Reduce the heat to medium / medium high and continue cooking with the lid closed until the burgers are done to your liking flipping once.
  • Add the cheese shortly after the flip to get a really good melt (Important for thick slices of cheese).
  • Remember meat tastes better if not over cooked and the temperature will rise another 3-5 degrees after pulling the burgers from the grill. Cooking by temperature is the only way to get consistent results. I like to pull my burgers at 145-150 degrees.
