Okay promise you won’t judge me if I tell you something. I refuse to make burgers of any kind unless I can find these really beautiful sexy buns from my favorite bakery.
First, yes buns can totally be sexy.
Second, these buns are just waaaaay better than ordinary buns from the market. Plus they photograph so well!
I’ve started buying all of them every time my bakery has them in stock – and then freezing them for whenever I need them. I’m fairly certain I have at least 3 bags of buns in my freezer at this moment. Food Blogger issues at its finest!
For my last recipe in the 10 Ingredient Tabasco Challenge, I whipped up a batch of Tabasco Chicken Burgers. They are beyond simple but they are also gorgeous, flavorful, and perfect for a weeknight meal.
Given the restrictions with this challenge, these only have a few key ingredients – ground chicken, green onions, Tabasco, and salt! And then you serve them with lettuce and tomato. And depending on if you’re doing low carb or not – you can add a bun in there too
Technically the bun isn’t essential – so I’m counting it as a garnish. If you’re low carb, just wrap these up in some beautiful Bibb lettuce and serve them lettuce wrap style! Then you’ll be within the 10-ingredient challenge too!
These burgers make me very happy! Add some extra Tabasco on top right when you’re done cooking it and just let is seep into the meat and give you an extra zing when you bite into these luscious burgers.
