Hi. I’m Julie from Confessions of a Cooking Diva and I’m excited to be joining Occasionally Crafty’s Fun in the Summertime series. I love to try new recipes and sharing them with my readers. My goal is to show that cooking doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming to be good.

I’m so excited that it’s summertime. I love the warm weather, being outside till late at night and grilling burgers. My Cajun Burgers are a spicy twist on your traditional burger and are a must-try this summer.
These Cajun Burgers have a spicy kick to them and then are nicely cooled down with green peppers and onions. I’ve never had a burger with a pepper on it until I made this burger and it’s fantastic. I love the crunch it adds to the burger.

The best part of the burger is the spicy mayonnaise mix. Mayonnaise mixed with hot sauce, Dijon mustard and a little parsley. Unbelievably good!

I hope you give these burgers a try at your next outdoor party and have a fantastic summer.

Cajun Burgers –
Ingredients-
1 ½ lbs. ground beef
2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
3 scallions, thinly sliced. Use both green and white parts
1 yellow onion, sliced into circles
1 green pepper, sliced into rings
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp hot sauce
A sprinkle of dried parsley
Vegetable oil
Hamburger buns


To Make –
Heat your grill or grill pan to medium.
In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, hot sauce, Dijon mustard and parsley. Place in refrigerator.
Slice your peppers and onions and get them ready to be placed on the grill after your burgers are done.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the ground beef, Cajun seasoning and scallions. Form into four patties. Choose the thickness you like. These were about ½ inch thick. Grill burgers to desired doneness.
Once the burgers are done take them off the grill and place them on a plate and cover with foil. This will keep them warm while you grill the vegetables.
Brush the onions and green pepper with some vegetable oil and place on the grill. Grill till slightly charred and are tender. About 5 to 7 minutes.
Place the hamburger patty on the bottom patty, add the mayonnaise mix and then layer with onion and a pepper, end with the top bun and serve.

Wow Julie!  Those sound amazing!  I can't wait to try them out for our next BBQ!  Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us!
