Chickified Bad-ass Burgers

Something about a juicy burger with BBQ sauce, grilled onions and mushrooms, and some fresh lettuce and tomato is simply irresistible, but a lot of people try to stay away from red meat. Luckily, ground chicken (or turkey or pork) is also available for the makin' and with the right ingredients, can be just a juicy as ground beef. I made these chicken burgers for my family last weekend and let's just say everyone agreed they were juicy and delicious, and nobody tasted my secret ingredient!

Most hamburger patties are made with breadcrumbs, to add texture, but I've found a secret ingredient that adds just as much texture as breadcrumbs without the unnecessary carbs, and it's virtually tasteless, so it let's your meat, spices, and sauce do all the talking- cauliflower! Yep, pureed/mashed cauliflower, when added to ground meat, not only bulks up your burger, but adds a nice fluffy texture! And, once you season them up with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika... whatever you choose, you've got a flavorful, bad-ass burger! And another secret ingredient- instead of the usual Worcestershire Sauce, try Walden Farms Barbecue sauce- it will definitely keep your meat from drying out! Pin It
