Baby Bloody Mary Burgers

Baby Bloody Mary Burgers

When my cousin Lisa mentioned receiving a huge compliment from her husband after making Beer Burgers by Rachael Ray, I knew they had to be wonderfully delicious. I looked up the recipe and it seemed to be something worth exploring. However, there were a couple major challenges for me to overcome. Number one: I rarely keep beer in my refrigerator because I’m more of a wine and spirits man. Number two: It is actually pretty difficult to find beer in Pittsburgh due to their weird liquor laws.

The idea of beer flavor inspired me to create a burger based from one of my favorite adult beverages, a good old fashion Bloody Mary. To make things even more special, I decided to shrink the portion to baby sized burgers. No need to worry about the kiddies, these burgers is completely alcohol free. They are full of flavor and fun to make.

Recipe Type: Sandwich
Serves: 12-15 burgers
  • 1 lb ground beef, as lean as possible
  • 2 Tbl. ketchup
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. horseradish
  • 2 Tbl. yellow onions, minced
  • 12 – 15 dinner rolls
  • Toppings of your choice
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, lightly toss the ground beef, ketchup, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, horseradish and yellow onion until well combined. Be careful to not over compact the meat.
  2. Shape the meat into approximately 12 – 15 patties. Each patty should be about 2 oz. in size. Cook for a quick 1 – 2 minutes on a George Foreman grill or 1 minute on each side in a skillet. Place a single mini burger inside a dinner roll and top with your favorite toppings. Use bamboo skewers to help prop them on a platter.

    You should serve the Nachos with Baked Corn Chips of course! Think of all the calories he’s saving by eating baked chips rather than fried! I also make great Twice Baked Potato Wedges that would go great with the burgers. Those will be posted soon.

    Thanks Cory! Jerry puts tabasco in just about everything, I am sure he is going to love these burgers. I am going to make them for the Michigan VS. Michigan State game next Saturday. (Go Blue!) Do you have any suggestions for a side dish?

    Hey Cory – I was looking for your e-mail address – I couldn’t find it. Are you in Chicago? I am!

    I wanted to ask you about the type of camera you use. Your pictures are amazing and was wondering what brand/style of cam you use.
