Burgers Acadian with Remoulade

My family in southwest Louisiana loves spicy, earthy foods indigenous to the region. Remoulade is a basic dressing used in place of cocktail sauce when eating boiled shrimp, sandwich spread, and salad dressing. It resembles a thousand islands dressing except with kick. There are two basic Remoulade recipes, yet my family enjoys the recipe with Ketchup. For a variation of this Remoulade recipe, replace the Ketchup with spicy brown mustard for an additional kick!.

Ingredients 

Remoulade

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dill relish
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Tabasco Chipotle Sauce

Patties

2 pounds fresh ground chuck
1 teaspoon Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
¼ cup onion, minced
1 tablespoon Colavita extra virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons dry Cajun seasoning

Vegetable oil, for brushing the grill rack
6 Kaiser Rolls, split
6 slices white extra sharp cheddar cheese
6 Red Leaf lettuce leaves
6 Tomato Slices (3" in diameter)

Instructions 

Directions
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
To prepare Remoulade, mix all ingredients into bowl folding to ensure incorporation. Place into refrigerator prior to use on the burgers.
To make the patties, combine the chuck, Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, sugar, garlic, onion and olive oil into a large bowl. Mix well and handle the meat as little as possible. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties to fit the Kaiser rolls. Divide and sprinkle 1 tablespoon each of Cajun Seasoning over each side of burger. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, approximately 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium. Top each burger with cheese slices on the patties during the last 3 minutes of grilling. Place Kaiser rolls on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly, approximately two minutes. Remove the burgers and rolls from the heat.
To assemble to burgers apply a generous amount of Remoulade over the cut sides of the rolls. Place Red leaf lettuce leaves on Kaiser Roll bottom followed by a grilled burger, tomato slice, and Kaiser Roll top and serve. Makes 6 burgers.

Comments 

The Acadians were French Settlers of eastern Canada who were exiled from their land in the 1750s. The "Cajuns" are their descendants who settled in Louisiana.
