Burger #83 – Cheetos

It ain’t easy, bein’ cheesy…

Today’s burger is created from the chip snack known as Cheetos.  Did you know that Cheetos are technically known as a cheese-flavored cornmeal snack?  Do burgers and Cheetos go together? Well, there’s actually a hamburger recipe that incorporates the use of Cheetos in them:

KickaCajun Burger

For each burger
1 handful lanogstinos (crawfish tails) or Uncooked Shrimp
1 handful Cheetos
Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
1 or 2 eggs.

For topping
1 onion cut in thin strips/rings
1″ butter
1/4 cup Southern Comfort

Take langostinos or shrimp and cut in to medium size chunks about 1/2 squares.
Smash Cheetos into small bits using a plastic bag and your hand. (Use one handful of each for each burger.)
Combine them together and add just enough beaten egg to coat. About 1/3 egg per burger.
Add a Sprinkle of Tony Chachere’s seasoning and stir until wet.
Mold into burgers and fry at medium high heat (with a little butter) until cooked through, about 3 minutes a side. Make sure shrimp is cooked all the way.

To make onions,
melt 1″ butter in pan,
add onions and fry for 2 minutes, turning often.
Add 1/4 cup Southern Comfort, tilt pan to ignite and stand back.

Let cook for 3 minutes more or until starting to crisp up.
Serve burger with onions on top, Mayo, a little sprinkle of Tony’s spice.
