Great Burgers!! I used ground turkey instead of the sausage, and I didn't have any chili powder so I used Pampered Chef Southwestern Seasoning (about 1 tablespoon), also increased the cumin a little. Added 1 can of chopped green chilis and a handful of fresh breadcrumbs. The burgers wouldn't have held up to the grill but cooked up nicely in a pan on the stovetop in about 5-6 minutes per side. They didn't have sliced smoked cheddar at my grocery store so I used Chipotle Cheddar (Sargento brand), and it was nice and smoky and added extra bite. No extra condiments needed!!
Made this w/o the sausage, tasted like salsa. Also added an egg, and cooked on the stove. Totally fell apart so I wouldn't imagine grilling them would be a very good idea. Probably won't make again.
Can only give this 4 stars because I had to adjust it a bit for my family's taste. It was a bit spicy for my kiddos, otherwise the recipe is great as is.
I had to double the recipe. I used 1 lb. sausage and 1 lb beef. I think I will use 1/2 tsp cumin instead of 1 tsp.
Oh my goodness... GOOD burger!!! Made these for my bf and I tonight. I am not a fan of plain grilled burgers, but these HIT THE SPOT! Recipe yields 4 PLUMP burgers. I can normally eat 2, but tonight, all I could manage was 1 (haha!). All I did to modify the recipe was to add a little more than half of a 4 oz. can of mild diced green chilies (drained) and 1/4 c. of plain bread crumbs per other's suggestions, and, instead of grilling, broiled for approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Topped with mild cheddar (my local grocer did not have the smoked variety) and salsa and served with nacho Doritos and homemade pink lemonade to wash it all down. Yum-o!
Very moist and tender burgers. Had a great amount of spice in it for a little kick but not too much that everyone could not eat them. The smoked cheddar is the key for these burgers. Will make again.
great recipe but flavoring needed adjusting because too spicy for my taste
yum! I've never made burgers with roll sausage before, so this was new for me. I'll definitely make these again! The heat was perfect for us and they were very juicy and flavorful. The only problem I had was keeping them together, but it wasn't too bad. Certainly didn't affect the delicious taste!
So good. very easy to make and spicy enough for my husband! We both ate 2! Tastes great on a ciabatta bun!
