Have you ever used Cajun seasoning in a burger recipe? If not, this is a great recipe to start with. Cajun seasoning is an integral part of many Creole recipes, which is why we've included it here. It's a distinct and wonderful flavor that really stands out as the star of any recipe it's in.
Traditional burger recipes are great and all, but sometimes you need something different. These Creole burgers will be a welcome addition to any family's recipe book. They're great for a unique picnic experience, or for dinner on any night of the week.
These burgers shouldn't be too spicy, unless you have a very low tolerance for spice. If you're worried, just keep a glass of milk handy! Milk is a great treatment for a mouth besieged by spice. You can also cut down on the Cajun seasoning within, but given that the Cajun seasoning is this recipe's main source of flavor we don't recommend it.
