These bold-flavored burgers were inspired by a recipe from reader Rhonda Maiani of North Carolina.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound ground chuck
  • 1/4 pound ground pork sausage
  • 3/4 cup frozen diced onion, red and green bell pepper, and celery
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Cajun Mustard
  • Toppings: lettuce, tomato slices, onion rings

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Gently combine ground chuck, sausage, and next 6 ingredients. Shape mixture into 4 (4-inch) patties.

  2. Grill patties, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink in center.

  3. Grill hamburger buns, cut sides down, 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Serve burgers on buns with Cajun Mustard and desired toppings.
