These burgers are SO GOOD.
I love me a good hamburger, but I have a hard time with homemade ones, unless they are cooked on the barbeque and have that charred smokey flavor, but this burger had so much flavor that I really liked it, despite being cooked indoors.
Ground turkey is mixed in with the beef, along with a yummy sauce mixture creating a super flavorful and juicy burger. They are topped with roasted red peppers which give them a perfect sweet peppery flavor. Roasted red peppers are so good that I can eat them plain.
I didn't have any problems eating two of these and "The Mr." didn't have any problems eating three. We loved them and I know we will be making them again soon.
Maybe at my Easter weekend BBQ?
Serve with a side salad, pasta salad or some chips.
Cajun Sliders(Printable Recipe) and (Printable with Picture)
1/2 Lb. lean ground beef
1/2 Lb. lean ground turkey
1 Tbl. ketchup
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning, plus more for veggies
1/4 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar, opt.
1 clove garlic, grated
1 red bell pepper, cut lengthwise into strips
5-6 round onion slices
Monterey cheese, sliced
5-6 hamburger/slider buns
For serving: Light Miracle Whip, mustard, pickles, lettuce
Add ground beef and turkey to a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, white wine vinegar, grated garlic and black pepper; add to the ground meat and mix together until combined.
Form into patties, slightly larger than your buns, because they shrink a little when cooked. Cook hamburgers however desired. I cooked mine on the George Foreman, but you could cook in a skillet if that is all you have. Top each burger with a slice of cheese.
Meanwhile, place the sliced red bell peppers and round onion slices on a baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little Cajun seasoning. Place under the broiler and heat until browned, tossing once.
Jenn's Notes: The number of sliders you will get obviously depends on the size of your buns. I was able to get five sliders in the size that I needed. I typed the recipe above exactly as I made it and I thought these tasted amazing.
