Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, Italian sausage, chili sauce, salt and pepper. Form 8 balls out of the meat, and flatten into patties.

  • Grill patties for 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.

Note

More chili sauce may be used as desired in patties; I generally almost double the amount, which makes a very moist burger, but it also falls apart easily.

***UPDATE*** Chili sauce is like ketchup (NOT spicy thai chile sauce) - I always find it with the ketchup, usually on the top shelf and there is typically only one or two kinds (heinz and store brand) - it tastes like ketchup but is a little thicker - hope you have better luck with it this way! I can imagine that with taco sauce it would give it a totally different flavor (and texture, as taco sauce isn't as thick :)) I don't feel like I can give this a star rating because I submitted the recipe - but I think it's delicious, and allrecipes makes you give a rating, so 5 stars :) I usually add a little bit of minced garlic to the mix, as well, and extra chili sauce (it tends to fall apart with too much, though, so watch out :)). The chili sauce is good even with just beef (or even ground turkey) if you don't have sausage. Be careful not to overcook, though, because the meat will stay red due to the sauce. Use a meat thermometer if you want to make sure it's done, or just grill as you would any other burger. Read More

I found these burgers took forever to cook to proper temp and by that time they were dry as a bone? May be i didn't get something right but they still were not good enough to make again. Read More

Wow - I loved this recipe! It satisfied everyone - from the big meat eaters to the people who aren't even big on red meat. I made this for a family BBQ becuase I wanted something different than just a hamburger. I used ground italian TURKEY sausage instead of regular and it worked great. With the help of the Chili Sauce, the burgers were unbelievably moist and I got rave reviews. Thanks for the recipe - I will make this again and again! Read More

Yummy! It was hard for me to want to put any other condiments on the burger! My advice would be to double the recipe! Everyone may want two! Read More

Made this last night, husband wants it again this week. I already had plain sausage on hand so I added oregano, basil, and garlic plus a little extra chile sauce. Good stuff! Read More

I really like this recipe. The only thing that I do is add two cloves of crushed garlic to the mixture and top it with some sliced pepper jack. Very tasty! My girlfriend didn't care for it so much because she doesn't like the taste of rye (italian sausage) but I loved it. Thanks! Read More

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. My family went wild for them. We made them into little "sliders" and cooked them on the Foreman grill. Mmmm. We'll be making this again! Read More

This is one of the best burgers ever! I've made it with plain and italian sausage and loved it both times. Per the other review I've been cautious about adding too much chili sauce - but after they're cooked I put a little more sauce on top instead of ketchup. Read More

Careful with the sausage too much can change the entire tone. Read More
