Alright guys, I have a burger recipe for you that is going to make you the star of your 4th of July party this year! Maybe I’m a little bit biased since I’m from Maryland but I think that crab makes everything better and up here it isn’t a 4th of July BBQ without a bushel of crabs to share with friends and family. This Chesapeake Crab Burger combines two summer cook out classics into one awesome burger. It is a perfectly seasoned all beef patty topped with delicate crab meat in a light, flavorful sauce served on a kaiser roll. If you have a crab-lover in your life they are going to love you for making this!
I can’t take credit for coming up with this recipe, though now that I’ve had it I don’t know why I never thought of it myself! I found it on Giant Recipe Center and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to try it. If you haven’t check it out you need to take a look. It is full of affordable, easy to make recipes! After I found this one I went straight to one of my local Giant Food Stores and grabbed everything I needed for the recipe. Giant made my life super easy because I was able to grab all of the other things I needed for 4th of July while I was there. Potato salad, buns, desserts, and even paper plates/napkins/forks, you name it they had it and I was able to get it all in one trip.
They recipe itself is really easy the burger itself is simple, ground beef, egg, salt and pepper grilled until it is cooked to your preferred level of doneness (I like mine medium what about you?).
Then comes the topping. You start by sauteing shallots and garlic, then add a little seafood stock to deglaze the pan letting the liquid reduce for about 30 seconds. Then you add your mustard, salt and pepper and bring the liquid to a boil. Drop in your crab meat so it gets heated all the way through, then remove it from the heat and add butter. Is your mouth watering already? Mine is! When your burgers are ready place them on a kaiser roll and top them with the crab and sauce then dig in. So good! I’ll tell you a little secret too, since I’m from Maryland I added a little shake of Old Bay seasoning and a squeeze of lemon juice to some mayo and put that on the bun with my Chesapeake Crab Burger and it was even better. Yum!
Make sure to grab the recipe here and then head to Giant to get all of your ingredients. I promise you that you are going to be the star of the 4th of July cookouts with this recipe and make sure you check out the Giant Recipe Center for more easy and affordable 4th of July recipe ideas!
