Life is a learning experience and we never stop learning no matter how old we get, or how experienced we get. I don’t think that I will ever stop learning cooking and to tell you the truth, I’m still just a rookie, even after nearly 20 years of cooking experience under my belt. I’m also teaching myself the new and all the interesting things there are about cooking. There is something special about learning new traits on your own. I feel like there is more desire, passion, and love behind it.
I do have a reason behind this little speech, I promise.
I’m finally getting to learn more about something I’ve been dying to master for many years. I finally have a chance to practice and learn as much as I can about gilling. I know men are supposed to be the masters of the grill, but why do they get to have all the fun? I want to be one too!
Now that we moved out of our little apartment into a nice new house, we finally get to have a backyard. And having a backyard means we can finally dust off our big, beautiful grill that has been locked away in storage, patiently waiting for its shining moment. Its moment is finally here!
We decided to break in the grilling season by cooking up some sausage burgers, Johnsonville Grillers to be exact. It’s a simple but tasty way to test our grill after being out of business for a few years.
These sausage burgers already have such a delicious flavor, I didn’t want to load it up with a lot ingredients that might overpower the original flavor. I chose to use Johnsonville Grillers in a “Steakhouse Onion” flavor because it seemed like one one that would go with any toppings or sauces I might choose to use. Johnsonville Grillers also come in Cheddar Cheese and Bacon, and Swiss Cheese and Mushroom. I’m planning on serving Cheddar Cheese and Bacon ones on the Memorial Day weekend because it already has two awesome classic flavors packed in the sausage.
BLT Grilled Sausage Burgers
- 4 Johnsonville Grillers sausage burger patties
- 12 strips of raw bacon
- 4 Burger buns
- Chipotle mayo optional but recommended:
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
- 1/2 tsp lime juice
- Prepare your grill and heat it before cooking the burgers. (Set your coals on the lowest bar, so they are not too close to the top.)
- Wrap three slices of bacon around each sausage patty, tucking in loose ends. Brush each side of wrapped burgers with some vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Cook burgers on each side (with grill lid covered), for about 5 to 7 minutes of each side.
- For chipotle mayo: you can pulse all ingredients in a blender to mix or you can mince chipotle as finely as possibly and mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
- Spread some chipotle mayo on each bun and layer lettuce, tomatoes and cooked sausage burger.
