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.)

Ingredients
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
Instructions
    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 stove top, bake in oven or grill on the barbeque
    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!
