Today we're heading to the bayou with this Cajun black and blue burger recipe from yours truly and sponsored by Omaha Steaks.
CAJUN BLACK AND BLUE BURGER
4 tsp. Cajun blackened seasoning
2 Andouille sausages, cut lengthwise into 8 slices
1/3 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 tsp. Louisiana hot sauce
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
Prepare grill for high heat cooking. As the grill heats up, combine the barbecue sauce and hot sauce in a small bowl and stir well. Season both sides of the burger patties liberally with Cajun blackened seasoning. Make a small indentation in the center of each burger with your thumb (this will ensure that the burger maintains an even thickness and doesn’t plump up in the center while cooking). Place the burger patties on the grill and cook for approximately 4 minutes per side for medium rare (130-135 degrees internal temperature). As the burgers cook, place the Andouille sausage slices on the grill and cook for approximately 3 minutes per side until lightly browned and warmed through. Remove the burgers and sausage slices from the grill.
To assemble the burgers, spread the spicy barbecue sauce on the top and bottom buns. Place burger patties on the bottom buns, top each patty with 2 slices of Andouille sausage, 2 oz. blue cheese crumbles and the top bun.
