Favorite Burger Recipe

Eating Well is one of my newest favorite magazines. At some point they published a summer BBQ edition, and we have loved one recipe in particular: The Smokey Bison Burger. Below is the recipe as I made it. You can find the original here
As you can appreciate- I do not follow instructions well- but lucky for me the end result is just as amazing as the original (I did follow the instructions the first time!)

Smoky Beef Burger
makes 4 burgers- 225c not including buns or toppings

1lb Ground Beef (93% lean)
1/2c Wild Rice (I get this from Trader Joes)
1/2 Shredded Reduced Fat Smoked Gouda
2T BBQ sauce
1T Paprika
2t Dijon Mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste

Kaiser Buns (4)
Sliced Tomato and Onion
Additional BBQ sauce for buns

Mix all ingredients together and form 4 burger patties
Grill to preferred doneness


*TE and I made these for my birthday camping trip this weekend and they were a hit!

This looks good! I have two stupid questions and you know what? I'm still going to ask them. Do you cook the rice first? And is it dijon mustard like in a jar, or dijon mustard seeds? I'm sorry for being a moron...but we're always a little desperate for ground beef recipes!

How was your weekend? The pictures looked like you were having fun!

Not a stupid question- a good recipe should say- and I did not :) I do cook the rice first and yes it is just jarred dijon. I hope you like it!

Oh my gosh - how bad is it that I just saw that you wrote me back? And that I was planning on sticking the rice into the burgers uncooked?

I am cracking myself up.

Off to TJs to buy the ingredients...are the burgers spicy?
