Ingredients
  • 8 ounces smoked Spanish-style chorizo links, casings removed
  • 1 pound 96% lean ground pork
  • 1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs, dried
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 small yellow onion, minced
  • 1/3 cup green bell pepper, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 hamburger buns, split
  • 6 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing
  • 2 cups shoestring potatoes (potato sticks)
  • 4 green lettuce leaves
Directions
  • Finely chop chorizo in a food processor or with a large knife. Gently mix together ground pork, chopped chorizo, breadcrumbs, egg, onion, green pepper, garlic and salt. Shape into 6 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Prepare a grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat, about 450 degrees F.

  • Grill burgers, with the lid closed, for 5 minutes. Turn and finish cooking for 4 to 5 minutes more, until cooked through or until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees F on a digital meat thermometer. Remove from grill.

  • Toast buns on the grill, about 1 minute per side. Build burgers on buns with 1 1/2 tablespoons dressing, 1/3 cup shoestring potatoes and one lettuce leaf. Serve immediately.
