Spicy Saints Burgers +" Who Dat " BBQ Chicken

When forecasters predicted a gorgeous, sunny weekend, with temps. in the 60's for South Louisiana, I immediately began planning to add a few grilled items to my Superbowl party menu. With just a few days left to finish the shopping and prepping for my "Black and Gold Superbowl " party, I wanted to share a few of the fabulous recipes that my son and I will be preparing for our guests, on the grill. Now I know that my northern friends won't be able to grill, for a while, (so sorry about that, save for Spring), but for everyone whose weather will be 60 degrees and sunny or above, ENJOY!

What would any good Superbowl, tailgating party be without some Spicy Saints Burgers? The secret that gives these wonderfully delicious burgers their zip is the Tabasco, horseradish, garlic blend. Even better to wash these babies down with your favorite brew! Cheers!

Spicy Saints Burgers 


2 lbs. lean ground chuck
1 tbs. Tabasco sauce
1 tbs. liquid smoke
2 tbs.'s minced garlic

1 tbs. prepared horseradish
1/4 cup green onions, excluding tops, chopped fine
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp.'s salt 
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
6 good burger buns
3 tbs.'s butter, melted

Place meat and all other ingredients in large bowl and mix gently, but thoroughly. Shape meat mixture into 6 patties and cover with foil and chill for one or more hours. Preheat gas grill on medium- high heat or charcoal grill on medium- high and cook for 7 to 10 minutes on each side, for medium. Baste buns with melted butter and grill to the side for 5 minutes to toast. Garnish with lettuce, tomato, onions, jalapenos, and pickles, and enjoy, cher! Ca cest bon!

And if you really want some real, " finger- lickin' GOOD" BBQ chicken, delight your guests with this scrumptious HOT recipe with a bit of sweetness added! Also great for wings! Out of this world!

"Who Dat" BBQ Chicken

1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup orange marmalade
1 tbs. Tabasco
1 tbs. vinegar
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 lbs. chicken pieces, (thighs, breasts, legs)
1 tbs. or more Cajun seasoning


Combine salsa, marmalade, Tabasco, vinegar, chili powder, and Worcestershire sauce in small bowl, and mix well. Set aside.

Rub seasoning into chicken pieces, in large baking pan. Grill on medium hot coals. Cover and grill for 20 minutes, turn and brush liberally with sauce. Continue grilling for 20 more minutes, turn and brush other side with sauce. Grill for 10 more minutes or until done. Cest bon cher!!! Bon Appetit!

Hope that ya'll have a fabulous, fun, Superbowl, weekend!
Merci beaucoup for passing by!

We can usually fire up the grill here in Southern California as well. Enjoy the super bowl and thanks for the recipes.

It's just before 7am here and you just reminded me the Super Bowl is this Sunday so I'm going to make the shrimp you put in your previous post (your mama's). Yum. Good luck to the Saints.

3 more days!

I see the BBC is running their trailers for the 'Bowl' this weekend. I'll catch a little, but not 4 hours at that time of night.

Joanne said...

Oh Marguerite. We're looking at light snow and temps in the 20s this weekend. So I can only dream about your amazing grilled burgers and chicken. I'm daydreaming about them already ...

That food looks so good but I don’t have a grill and it is raining. Tomorrow I’ll go to the local barbecue restaurant and get some pulled meat, baked beans and Brunswick stew to go – at least it will be something but nowhere as nice as the food y’all have.

6 inches of snow coming my way Sunday... but I'll be ready

Rosaria Williams said...

Great recipe. Go Saints!

Marguerite said...

Elizabeth- Hope you fire up the grill for these delicious recipes. Thanks, cher, and you're most welcome!

Cal.Girl- So glad that you're going to make the shrimp stew. Thanks for trying it! Enjoy! Hope that you don't get too much snow!

Carol- This sauce is one of my faves! It works well with grilled chicken, wings or shrimp and has a wonderful flavor! Geaux Saints!

John- Maybe you could tape the game and watch it when you wake up? If not, they will be recapping it on all of the sports channels forever!

Joanne- Your weather sounds so cold! You could bake the chicken in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes, then turn and baste with the sauce and bake for 15 more minutes. I have cooked it this way, and it comes out great! Stay warm!

I can tell which Super Bowl party I'd most like to go to! Mmmmm....

Laura said...

Marguerite- I know your party will be great and I am all in for the Saints.

The only difference is people in my neck of the woods will be eating fajitas, tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo and chips.

Geaux Saints!


Carol Murdock said...
