Juicy Salsa Burger – What’s the Secret Ingredient?!?

Image 2

My boys love burgers. It’s generally what they order off the kids’ menu when we go out for dinner, and what they would request if I asked them what they wanted to grill for dinner. When Hellmann’s asked us to give this new recipe for the Juicy Salsa Burger a try, I hoped it would be a hit with the family. I knew the burger part would be a hit…but I wasn’t so sure about the salsa on top part. I thought it might take a little convincing…

I have one boy who is a “ketchup only” burger purist. Another boy always requests “ketchup with no mustard” (which always makes me laugh, because he could just say ketchup only!). And the other boy is a “ketchup, pickles and mustard” burger eater.

At our dinner table, we have a “one bite rule” when we try something new. Because I’m always making new and fun foods in the kitchen, they are quite accustomed to trying different things. They all had their “one bite” and we only had 1 protest to the new salsa addition. I call that a win!

But it’s not the salsa part that we’re focusing on here. This burger was amazing. The burger part. I’ve never added mayonnaise to a burger before…but I can tell you that it’s something I’ll be doing more often.

Because yes…juicy, juicy, juicy. You can even see that in the photo. No more dry burgers at our house!

    WOW that burger does look juicy! I’ve never used mayonnaise in the burger mixture either. Thanks for the tip and sharing this amazing recipe. Gonna be on my burger list for this summer’s grilling.

    Do you think the Hellman’s Light mayo would work as a substitute? There’s something in eggs (particularly the white part) that gives me digestive troubles. Also, I wish people would quit automatically reaching for the fish sauce (Worchestshire) when giving meat a “bite”. There are plenty of us who can’t take that in our bodies. (I’d rather deal with the egg aftermath than the fish drama…ugh!) Liquid smoke is a better choice!

    Throughout the great pattern of things you actually secure a B- just for effort. Where you lost me was on all the facts. You know, people say, the devil is in the details And it couldn’t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you exactly what did work. The authoring is certainly quite convincing and this is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can see the leaps

    Oh my goodness! That burger is making my mouth water. I will definitely be adding this recipe to my menu planning. Usually I will add a packet of the Ranch sauce for flavor. I am definitely interested in learning more about how to make my meats juicy. Usually my meats are dry and you almost choke trying to get it down! Lol.
