Tasty Tuesday ~~ Coona$$ Turtle Burgers!

Oh boy, have I got a treat for you today, boys & girls! Whether you grill outdoors or cook inside, you'll love this unique recipe. Talk about a conversation-starter! [And since I AM a Cajun, I can use the cultural term, "coonass," but don't none 'a y'all go saying it as a slur, ya hear?] :D 

Coonass Turtle Burgers

Lean ground beef for as many burgers as you need
Seasonings to personal taste
Beef hot dogs
Sharp cheddar cheese (sliced nice & thick)
Lots of thick smoked bacon
Deli burger buns

Make your patties, including seasoning. Top each patti with a thick covering of sharp cheddar (you can also add or use Swiss). Securely wrap patties with the bacon weave as shown in picture below. Add hot dogs for the heads and legs, and make slits for the toes and tail. 

Place burger turtles on an oven rack or BBQ grill. Cover loosely with foil. Bake for about 30 minutes near 400 degrees for a nice crispy finish. 

Serve and watch your guests smile as they "dress" their own turtles!!

At first I was worried as there've been some Cajun shindigs (back in my OLLLLDD days) where real turtle was served!

Very clever!

OMG!!!!!

Literally that is all I can think in my head at this moment. I can't decide if that's the most clever thing I've ever seen or the most disgusting...... (I'm a northern girl and all..... )

Holy damn, woman! I can feel my arteries snapping shut just looking at those things. Even so, I am going to make some. They are just too decadent for a reprobate like me to pass up on.

Laura Renegar said...

LOVE these. I will make them and think of you. :)

Lori said...

Angie, these are so freakin' cute! If I ate meat, they'd be on my plate today. Hmm... I bet I could come up with a meatless version. :)

Amie said...

Haha Lori, I think the only think more frightening to bite into than a coonass turtle burger would be a VEGGIE coonass turtle burger!

My husband would probably LOOOOOOVE these.

Camp food at its finest. Will try this. Sorry for being missing. Really weird summer and season started last week. Kiddos, sweat, rain and food. Oh yeah, racing too.
