I’m sitting here this morning watching the sun rise over the Grand Tetons, breathing in fresh mountain air, and being so thankful we have so many fun memories growing up coming here for almost 30 years (literally have come here since I was an infant!) 

Last night we grilled at our condo, and I took on burger duty. I whipped up a new recipe, and am so excited to share it with you, as it’s the perfect weekend BBQ main dish! Hope you enjoy these Cowboy Burgers as much as my family did.

makes 10 burgers 

<< i n g r e d i e n t s >>

  • 2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef, chicken or turkey
  • 3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1/2 cup Carolina BBQ sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs, panko, or GF substitute 
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning of choice 
  • About 1/2″ cut off a block of sharp white cheddar, diced 
  • 1/2 onion, diced 
  • 1 jalepeno, seeds removed + diced 
  • 1 teaspoon worchister sauce 
  • Small handful of fresh parsley, washed + chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

  1. Preheat BBQ
  2. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl
  3. Using hands, knead everything together until blended well
  4. Add more BBQ sauce if desired
  5. Shape into balls and smash into patties (about 5″ in diameter)
  6. Grease grill and cook burgers until cooked thoroughly (I don’t like them mooing, so cook well-done for safety)
  7. Top with goodies like grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, grilled peppers, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.! The toppings world is your oyster 😉
  8. Say yee-haw and enjoy!
  9. Serve with one of my favorite sides like roasted veggie pasta salad, Mom’s pasta salad, rainbow salad, or more
