When I first read about the contest in the newspaper I had just finished preparing my menu for a 4th of July barbeque for my family which included traditional all american cheeseburgers. Well the contest really inspired me to think of something very unusual that I could incorporate into a winning hamburger recipe. Since Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year, I decided to create a hamburger with some of the traditional thanksgiving ingredients that you wouldn


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 tablespoon dried onion
1/3 cup chili sauce in jar
2/3 cup canned pumpkin pie mix
1 teaspoon montreal seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice mix seasoning
1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
6 onion hamburger buns
1/2 cup maple pancake syrup
6 slices cheddar cheese
6 slices of red delicious apple (cored)
18 baby spinach leaves


Heat charcoal grill briquettes until coals have turned to ash (approximately 30 minutes.)
Combine ground beef, dried onion, chili sauce, canned pumpkin, montreal seasoning, salt, pumpkin spice mix, bread crumbs together. Form meat mixture into six hamburger patties and cover with plastic wrap and chill for about half hour.
While burgers are chilling, place hamburger buns in aluminum foil and wrap up to form packet later to be placed on the grill.
Place chilled patties on preheated grill. Cool for 10-12 minutes. Flip burgers and continue to cook an additional 10-12 minutes along with the packet containing the hamburger buns.
Remove hamburgers from grill. Spread a little maple syrup on each side of the heated hamburger bun and assemble each burger with a slice of cheddar cheese, slice of apple and three spinach leaves.


Super simple to make, tastes GREAT!
