It is so exciting to get featured on other people’s blogs. Especially for something you are so proud of! I have been obsessed with burgers lately and loved this one so very much. I am actually working on a Burger Collection that I will post soon!

Here is the recipe card for the Caesar Burger in case you missed it!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 6


For the Burger

  • 2 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Egg beaten
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Coarse Black Pepper
  • 6 Brioce Hamburger Buns
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Parsley

For the Salad

  • 2 Romaine Hearts chopped
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese Shredded
  • ½ cup Caesar Dressing
  • 1 tsp Coarse Black Pepper


  • Prepare all of the ingredients. Preheat Grill to 400deg. Preheat oven to 450deg
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ingredients for the burgers (beef, Parmesan, egg, garlic, salt and pepper). Then shape into patties roughly 3½ inches wide by ¾ inch tall.
  • Once the grill is heated up, put burgers on and cook for 8-10 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and let rest at least 5 minutes before building burgers.
  • While the burgers are grilling, place buns, face up, on a cookie sheet. Combine melted butter, garlic powder and parsley and brush on to buns. Put in oven for 8 minutes (or until golden toasted)
  • In a salad bowl, combine the ingredient for the salad and place in fridge until ready to build burgers.
  • To build the burger, simple take bottom bun, top with burger, then some of the Caesar salad and the top bun. Enjoy!


You can also pan fry the burgers if you don’t have a grill. Use a medium-high heat pan with about a tbsp of oil. Same cook time.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
