Just in time for the weekend - burgers!
I am a big fan of burgers and enjoy them in all different forms. I frequently make the basic beef burger as well as these little lamb burgers that I serve with pita bread instead of buns. I also like the Trader Joe’s Chicken Chile burgers from the frozen food section and just tried out a new recipe for yummy pork burgers. I found the recipe for Sausage Burgers with Sriracha-Honey-Mustard Sauce right in the front a recent issue of Food and Wine magazine and thought it looked very simple and tasty. I love Italian sausage on pasta or pizzas and am a sucker for honey mustard dressings so the recipe let me have both things but in a new way. The burgers came together way faster than the 40 minutes that is was supposed to take and were very juicy (thanks to the fat in the sausage). I even froze a few extra burgers for an easy future weeknight dinner. A few notes about the recipe:
- I made these slider style which would be fun if you could get your kids to eat them or for a big party.
- I reduced the sriracha to 2 tablespoons instead of 3 since I am somewhat wimpy about hot spicy things. I would recommend starting with less sriracha and then adding more to avoid buring your mouth.
