  • Stove


Cajun Seasoning

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp hot sauce such as Sriracha or Tobasco
  • 2 slices pepperjack cheese quartered
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 mini hamburger buns, split or dinner rolls
  • 1/4 cup prepared ranch dressing
  • 16 arugula leaves or lettuce of choice
  • 8 Roma tomato slices
  • 4 cooked bacon slices crisp


  • Place all Cajun seasonings into a bowl, mix to combine.
  • Place beef, seasoning, hot sauce, and garlic into a large bowl and mix until just combined. I prefer to combine the beef with my hands. Form the mixture into 8 equal size patties.
  • Place oil into a large skillet over medium heat. In batches, place patties into hot skillet and cook until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place a quarter of cheese on top of each burger to melt.
  • Place rolls, split side down into same skillet until toasted, about 1 minute.
  • Spread dressing onto insides of warm toasted rolls. Layer bottom roll with arugula leaves, a burger, a tomato slice and a bacon slice cut in half. Close with top roll. I placed a pick inside each burger to hold them together. These babies are tall.
