Bayou Burgers with Spicy Remoulade

I like to serve these Southern, slightly spicy and flavorful burgers with sweet potato fries. —Michele Claybrook-Lucas, Media, Pennsylvania

    This is a great juicy burger with a ton of flavor. These burgers aren't for people who don't like heat.

    This was a very moist, spicy burger! The adults in our family loved it, but the kids found it too spicy. We used ground pork instead of turkey, and they were delicious. I shared this recipe with my cooking co-op and we made huge batches to freeze. They froze well and were easy to finish up (just don't freeze the sauce). We made 8 smaller burgers out of one recipe and served them on whole wheat hamburger buns to cut back on calories. Delicious!

    We LOVE this burger! We use beef instead of turkey, we girll them and we use Mayo in place of miracle whip (and I don't even LIKE mayo!) I use this remoulade for shrimp and chicken appetizers sometimes too! This is a favorite for sure!

    Although I am not a fan of the plain Turkey burger, this recipe was delicious and will be made again. To save on the calories, I skipped the buttered kaiser rolls and opted for toasted whitewheat hamburg buns. This recipe does make 8 smaller size burgers to fit the buns.
