Black And Blue Cajun Burger is an all-beef burger that is thick and juicy and is combined with a blend of seasoning to give it that blackened taste.
A blue cheese remoulade and crunchy kettle chips top it off!
The first burger of the season is always special. This burger will set the pace for the rest of the grilling season. It has to be bold; it has to be flavorful, and it has to be delicious. This black and blue Cajun burger was all of the above. The black in this burger comes from the blend of Cajun seasoning that I incorporate into the beef, and the blue comes from the blue cheese remoulade that is spooned on top. The kettle chips are the surprise; they add unexpected crunch and taste to this fantastic black and blue burger!

How to Make Black and Blue Cajun Burger
- Preheat your outdoor grill.
- Place the beef into a bowl and add in the salt, paprika, oregano, cumin, pepper, cayenne, chili powder, and garlic. Mix by hand to combine.
- Mix in the seasonings just until they are incorporated.
- Shape the beef into 6 equal-sized patties.
- Grill your burgers for 3 minutes, flip and then grill on the other side for an additional 3-5 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
- While the burgers are grilling, combine the mayo, mustard, lemon juice, and blue cheese in a bowl and stir together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom of 6 hamburger buns.
- Top the lettuce with a burger and then add a dollop of the remoulade before adding some kettle chips and a top bun.
Adjust the seasoning to your tastes. This burger isn’t as “black” like some other recipes because I knew my family couldn’t handle it. Increase the amount if you like it to be truly blackened.
The remoulade would taste just as good if feta were used in place of the blue cheese. I am partial to blue cheese and like the “black and blue “combo.
You might be inclined to omit the chips. The burger would still be wonderful without them. But something truly magical happens when you taste the spicy beef, the creamy remoulade, and the crunchy chips altogether.
Should I use lean ground beef for burgers?
I know we all love lean ground beef, but if you use beef with a little bit of fat, your burger will be juicier than if you simply used all lean beef. Beef is a natural source of essential nutrients, which makes a great protein source you can enjoy every day. Beef up your diet for good health! You may not realize that research shows that including lean beef daily as part of a healthy diet can help lower cholesterol levels, and exercise is more effective when paired with a high-protein diet.
What is a remoulade?
It’s a sauce made from a mixture of condiments. Remoulades originated from Louisiana and usually has a base of mayo that’s been spiced with cajun seasoning, whole grain mustard, and horseradish too.
