Cajun Burgers

I was at home a few weeks ago and my Dad was raging about some hamburgers he had made.  He talked about them so much that I decided I needed the recipe.  I can't really take credit for making these because my husband actually made them while I was out running errands one night, but I CAN tell you that they were FANTASTIC!!!  I expected them to be spicy because of their name, but they aren't.  They are SUPER juicy and have a definite "restaurant" taste to them.  The ingredient list is long, but you will have almost all of these things in your pantry, so don't be afraid.  I will definitely be making these the next time we have friends over to cook out!!
Cajun Burgers
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped (We didn't include this because we did the green onions and it seemed like a lot!)
6 green onions, thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 egg
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp dry bread crumbs
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
2 pounds ground beef
8 hamburger buns, split
condiments of your choice
In a large bowl, combine the first 16 ingredients.  Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.  Shape into eight patties.  Grill over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees and juices run clear.  Serve on buns.
Seriously, how good does this look?!?  You will definitely impress your friends with this one!  Enjoy!  :)
