Dirty Rice Burgers
Serves: 4
  • ½ lb Ground Turkey (You can also use Ground Beef or Chicken)
  • ¾ cup cooked White Rice
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped (traditionally Dirty Rice uses green but I had red... so I used red.)
  • ½ cup Cannellini Beans
  • 2 Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Cajun Seasoning (a fun substitute is Taco Seasoning too)
  • 2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • Jalapeno Pepper, seeded & minced (optional)
  • Toasted Brioche Bun, for serving
  • Toppings:
  • Add whatever your little heart desires, but here's what I added to ours. I think a slice of Pepper Jack or White Cheddar along with caramelized Onions would go lovely on this massive beast of a burger.
  • Cilantro, chopped (use as much or as little as you want)
  • Arugula
  • Sriracha-Lime Mayo:
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Lime Juice
  • Cowboy Caviar Guacamole:
  • If you want, you can use regular Guacamole or give yourself a break & buy a pre-made pint at the grocery store.
  • 1 Avocado, seeded & chopped
  • 1 Roma Tomato, chopped
  • ¼ cup Black Beans
  • ¼ cup Corn, cooked & cooled
  • ⅛ Red Onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Lime Juice
  • ½ Jalapeno, seeded & minced
  • S+P (about 1 tsp. each)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Lightly grease a foil-lined baking pan with Cooking Spray or Olive Oil.
  3. Combine all Burger Patty ingredients in a large mixing bowl (except for the bun) and mix until all ingredients are intertwined with one another.
  4. Form 4 Burgers and place on baking pan.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, turning once halfway.
  6. While the Burgers are baking, make the Sriracha-Lime Mayo and Cowboy Caviar Guacamole.
  7. Once the Burgers are cooked, serve on a toasted Brioche Bun with desired toppings.
