Bacon-wrapped Cajun Burgers

If you like spicy and tasty burgers then this Bacon-wrapped Cajun Burgers recipe will surely fulfill your wishes. (I like to add about a tablespoon of cracked fennel seeds to this recipe, on occasions, to give the burgers a slight "breakfast sausage" taste to them.)

Bacon-wrapped Cajun Burgers
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • bacon, thinly sliced
  • 1 med. onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 or 2 Tbs cayenne pepper (your choice)
  • 1 Tbs garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
    1. thoroughly mix all the above ingredients (except bacon slices)
    2. form 4 1/2" diameter by 1" thick meat patties
    3. place patties on a cookie sheet and semi-freeze the burgers (about 1 hour)
    4. remove from freezer and wrap the patties along the edge, or crisscross, with slices of bacon
    5. for circular wraps, insert a toothpick to join the bacon strips with the meat patties
    6. cook on stovetop, bake in oven, or grill on the barbeque
    7. build your burgers according to preference (lettuce, onions, tomato, pickles, cheese, etc.)

    Makes 6 - 8 servings.

    Before storing them in the freezer, stack the burger patties between sheets of waxed-paper for easy removal and contain them in Ziploc bags until cooking time. This method takes a little effort but is well worth the time.

    Note: A word of precaution: remove the toothpicks from the Cajun burgers before serving to avoid accidental swallowing.

    Bon Appetite!
