Garden Burgers

I like to make use of the herbs and vegetables in my garden this time of year, so I came up with this flavorfull variation on your basic burger that boosts the flavor and gives it that extra "WOW"! My family and friends all enjoy these tasty burgers, and they are often requested once people know that my garden has come back to life for the summer.


2 lbs lean ground beef
1 tsp seasoning salt
dash of garlic powder
1 Tbs worchestershire sauce
1 1/2 Tbs fresh snipped chives
3 Tbs finely minced red onion
fresh ground black pepper
8 large onion buns
1 onion, sliced in to rings
1 large sliced fresh tomato
8 leaves crisp butter lettuce
8 slices pepper jack cheese
1/2 cup light maypo
1 Tbs smokey chipotle sauce


Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Form in to 8 patties, press to 1/2 -3/4 inch thickness. Cook on grill over medium high heat turning at least twice until desired "done-ness" is achived. Combine miricle whip and tabasco sauce in small bowl, set aside. Place each burger on bottom onion bun that has been napped with miricle whip sauce, top with pepper jack, onion rings, tomato, and lettuce. Spread another layer of miricle whip sauce on top bun, and place on top of lettuce.
