Cajun Burgers

This recipe originally showed up on Occasionally Crafty in June. I was a guest contributor for her summer series.

I know Pinterest is full of fall decorations and pumpkin recipes, but there is still plenty of time to grill some delicious burgers.  My Cajun Burgers are a spicy twist on your traditional burger and are a must-try this summer.

These Cajun Burgers have a spicy kick to them and then are nicely cooled down with green peppers and onions. I’ve never had a burger with a pepper on it until I made this burger and it’s fantastic. I love the crunch it adds to the burger.

The best part of the burger is the spicy mayonnaise mix. Mayonnaise mixed with hot sauce, Dijon mustard and a little parsley. Unbelievably good!

I hope you give these burgers a try.

Enjoy!
