Pecan Burgers

Pecan Burgers

Makes 4 servings


  • 1 pound of hamburger meat
  • 5 tbsp of chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp of fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 hamburger rolls
  • Oil and butter for cooking


  1. To get the most flavor into our Pecan Burgers we are going to roast the pecans on the stove first, we recommend buying whole pecans and chopping them yourself.
  2. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet over a high heat, throw in the chopped pecans and cook for 2-3 minutes. You should see a change in color slightly as the pecans roast and begin to release some of their natural oils. Remove and set aside.
  3. Now combine the hamburger meat, chopped onions and bell pepper, parsley and seasoning in a large bowl and mix well, then mix in the roasted pecans.
  4. Shape the mixture into 4 patties with your hands and fry in a little oil for 4-5 minutes each side making sure the meat is fully cooked. These Pecan Burgers are perfect for the barbeque because those pecans roast up even better.
