1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. dry bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
3 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp. Tony Chachere's or Zatarain's Cajun seasoning, divided
1/2 Tbsp. Creole mustard
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (for grill or skillet method)
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns or individual ciabatta rolls
Preheat grill or skillet over high heat.
In a medium bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, hot sauce, Worcestershire, green onions, 1/2 Tablespoon Tony Chachere's or Zatarain's Cajun Seasoning, and mustard. Form into 4 patties.
Sprinkle both sides of each patty evenly with remaining 1 Tablespoon of Tony Chachere's or Zatarain's Cajun Seasoning.
For the grill: Lightly oil grill grate, and cook patties over high heat 1 minute per side to achieve blackened look. Lower heat and finish cooking 4 minutes per side.
For the skillet: Add oil to pan and swirl to coat bottom of pan. When oil just starts to smoke, add patties, 2 at a time, and cook 1 minute per side to achieve blackened look. Turn heat to medium and continue cooking 4 minutes per side until cooked through. (Hint: Use 2 pans to get all burgers done at same time.)
Place 1 slice cheese on each burger, and allow to melt. Serve burgers on buns with your favorite toppings, sauces, and a side of fried okra!
