Spicy Beef Burgers


This is the perfect follow up to the Light Brioche Burger Buns. YUMMO!

I have become a bit of a burger queen thanks to Rachael Ray. Before a couple years ago, I never realized burgers could be so delicious, so versatile, and so exciting. The possibilities are endless! We have burgers and (some form of) potatoes for dinner once a week--typically Wednesday or Thursday. I love changing things up with the flavors I choose to infuse inside the burgers. It keeps Kevin guessing. :) This week, I went with a simple spicy variety that I think you'll love! Place this burger between the most amazing Brioche Bun and you'll have a table full of happy people.  

Spicy Beef Burgers
Serves 4
1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or shredded
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp spicy steak seasoning blend
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
Provolone cheese, optional

In a medium bowl combine all ingredients with your hands, being sure not to overwork the meat (this is lead to tough burgers.) Score the meat into four equal sections and form into patties. Make the center of the patties  thinner than the edges to allow for even cooking. 

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once preheated, add burgers to the skillet and cook 4-5 minutes per side. During the last minute or two of cooking, top with provolone (or other) cheese. 

Serve inside a delicious Brioche Bun with a side of Zesty Potato Wedges.
