Cajun Spiced Burgers

Beef burgers get a big flavor boost here from Cajun seasoning, while the classic trinity of Creole cuisine (onions, bell peppers, and celery[) makes an appearance as well. Our burger blend of choice is 80% lean ground beef-it has the perfect ratio of juiciness to flavor.]

Prep:
30 min
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds 80% lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 3 scallions, sliced (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced into 1/4-inch rings
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns, split
Directions

SET UP: Prepare a grill or grill pan and heat to medium-high heat.

FORM THE PATTIES: Gently mix the ground beef, Cajun seasoning, and scallions. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

MIX THE REMOULADE: Combine the mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce, parsley, and celery in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.

GRILL EVERYTHING: Grill the patties, flipping once, to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Brush the onion and green pepper with the oil and grill the vegetables until lightly charred and tender, about 5 minutes total.

SERVE: Toast the buns on the grill for a minute or so. Put a patty on the bottom bun and top with remoulade. Add some onion and bell pepper, then add the top bun.
