Try the Sweet n’ Southern Burger for 4th of July

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Martin’s Food Markets for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hamburgers and the Fourth of July go together like hotdogs and buns. As a hamburger fan from birth, I have tried many a recipe in my day but nothing like the Martin’s Food Market’s Sweet ‘n’ Southern Burger. For this recipe you won’t even need beef. All you need is a pound of ground chicken and a few other ingredients and in under an hour you will be feasting on one of the most delicious burgers you ever had.

First thing you need to do is preheat the over to 375 degrees and mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Next grab yourself a grater and a bowl and go to town on your carrot and onion. After grating your ingredients mix them together with your chicken, panko, hoisin sauce, and ginger.

After combining the ingredients just shape it into four patties on your baking sheet and slam it in the oven. Set the timer to 20 minutes and while the burgers are cooking get the ingredients to make your salsa. After chopping your peach and mixing your ingredients just set it aside and before you know it you will be applying it to your burger.

 This recipe is one of the best I have tried in a while. The burger has a really good flavor and texture. Although it is called a sweet “n” southern burger, to me it tastes really Asian. Other than great taste, one of my favorite things about this recipe is how healthy it is. Chicken has a lot lower fat than beef and the patties are baked and not fried. After taking the cookie sheet from the oven I was impressed as there was absolutely no grease.

 The patties have a really great mouthfeel and go down really light. You know that heavy feeling you get in your stomach when you eat a really good beef patty? Well you won’t get that… After eating a sweet ‘n’ southern burger the only feeling you will be left with is satisfaction.
