"These aren't your everyday hamburgers. They taste a little different, but this is the only way I make them. Everyone loves these, and they are fairly simple to make. The brown sugar brings out the flavors of the other spices. Please note that these aren't exact measurements. I just throw a little of this and a little of that in."

ground beef chuck
yellow onion, finely chopped
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
This is by far the best hamburger I have ever tasted. I chose to eliminate the cajun and add a lot of fresh garlic. The brown sugar really shows off the spices while maintaining a sweet taste.
This recipe is a good place to start, but I wasn't thrilled with it as written. I like sweet foods, but my burger was so sweet I couldn't even finish the whole thing. Also, they didn't hold together very well while cooking, but that might have been because I pureed the yellow onion. It might also have been because our burgers ended up HUGE -- we used extra lean ground beef, which basically means we had enough mixture for six patties instead of four. They also turned out very sticky and gooey, which was pretty unappealing while they were being put together. The best thing about this meal was the chipotle pepper flavored corn chips I found at our Asian market to serve with them! Reduce the sugar by maybe half, make the burgers pretty small, and add cheese, chips, and anything else that will tone down the sweetness & stickiness, and they just might work.
Pretty "Good Burger"! I only used 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar which seemed to balance the heat of the cajun seasoning and used bit of minced garlic vs. garlic powder.
These were great!!! The only thing I changed was I did not use steak sauce. Instead I used the same amount of Worcestershire sauce. These received a lot of comments and I have given the recipe to several people since I served them.
This was the most awesome burger recipe ever. They go excellent with seasoned texas fries.
This a very tasty burger. One of the best I have tasted in a while. I didn't use the onion due to the fact I am not an onion fan. Over all though it had a very good taste and it will be made again.
My husband and I were surprised with how good these burgers are. They are sweet and yet spicy. This is by far the best burger recipe we've ever had!
Unachica, you're absolutely right, these are not your every day burger, but that IS the beauty of it = a great change from the every day version. If you read the description of the burger, it states that they are not exact measurements, so I really didn't have a problem in that area (my tastes), I did use a little less sugar, but everything else was as written. Oh, I also mixed it into a pattie and put it in the fridge so that the flavors could "marry". It was a good burger, not an everyday burger, but a really good once in a while burger (sweet tooth burger). Next time I will try it topped with mango salsa, thanks Unachica!
