Smoky Sausage Burgers

This is from a collection of recipes that we used to subscribe to called Easy Everyday Cooking. They use to send a bunch of recipes every few weeks in the mail. I don't think we ever actually finished the collection of recipes. I tried it about a week ago for the first time.

Smoky Sausage Burgers
1 pound ground beef (I used extra lean)
1 pound bulk pork sausage (I used Jimmy Dean's extra mild just because I wasn't sure how spicy the others were & I don't really like super-spicy stuff - I might try substituting ground turkey or something else that is a little less fatty than sausage sometime)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (I omitted this, but I did put in a little onion powder)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce (I omitted this because I wasn't sure if my husband liked it or not - he said he likes it, so we'll have to try them some other time with it)
1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring
2 loaves French bread (we just used regular wheat bread)
Sliced red onion (we didn't use this)
Sliced tomatoes (we didn't use these either)
Serves 6

We actually tried this recipe again just a couple days ago when we had the missionaries from our church over for lunch. We used the Jimmy Dean Regular flavor ground sausage & we actually used the Worcestershire sauce this time too. We used regular burger buns instead of the French bread. We did have tomatoes, lettuce, and pickles to use too, as well as a variety of cheese slices. They turned out really well the second time too!



  1. Oooh thanks for posting this Michelle. It looks way yummy. We'll have to put these on our "to try" list. :)

  2. Okay, so I made these this evening and they were a HUGE hit with the family. I can't wait till summer to be able to toss these on the grill. Mmmmm. We made it with all of the ingredients....they were just fabulous.
