Ultimate Sriracha Burger

If you’re a regular here, you know I recently went to The Thurman Cafe with my fellow dietitian friend and blogger, Gina. Though I don’t normally consider myself a burger person (or a red meat lover in general), having that burger that night really stirred up a craving.

And after recent accusations of my lack of grilling ;) …here…we…GO!


If this aint a burger, I don’t know what is. Sometimes, you’ve just got to splurge.

Last night’s hockey skills & drills session was killer. Being on a team with all guys, I miss the bonding with female hockey players, so it was great to be back on the ice with all women. It’s also been since COLLEGE that I went through sets of skating drills and drawn-up plays. Unlike my Sunday games, we were moving almost 100% of the hour. When I pulled off my helmet in the locker room, my ponytail was DRIPPING sweat. Sexy, I know. Awesome workout…can’t wait for the next session :)

Off to work and then on the road! It’s my Friday (woo!) and I can’t wait to get to Chicago to see my family & friends :) And to attend my cousin’s wedding!

Question: What’s on your dream burger?

See you in Chicago,


  1. I’m not a big meat eater, either… although I do confess to liking an occasional burger, too.

    I’m a trad’l burger gal – cheese, pickles & ketchup. I save my tomato & lettuce for other veggie interests ;-)

  2. I just had to wipe drool off my keyboard…thanks a lot! Seriously though, that burger looks amazing and your pictures are great as well :)

  3. This DOES look amazing!! Wowza! And only 600 calories? That beats Thurman’s approximate 1200 calories (I just made that up, but I’m guessing). I love the idea of adding soy sauce to a burger patty. So much flavor!

    Have a great time in Chicago! Also, I e-mailed oyu about our dinner date. I suggested September 3rd instead, but I can’t remember if that was even an option. IF it wasn’t, no big deal we’ll keep the 2nd.

  4. When I go for a burger, it’s important to incorporate cheddar and avocado. Other stuff is nice and all, but those are my two favorite. :)

  5. BLUE CHEESE! Say no more haha oh and add bacon too for a really satisfyingly salty mess!

  6. I think I need this in my life very soon.

  7. Sriracha hot sauce is the best! I love that stuff! :-D

  8. HOLY heck of a burger– that looks amazing!! I bet it packs heat, too!

  9. Wow….does that look like I want to take a bite right now or what? I have been becoming more and more friendly with Sriracha….who knew there was an entire cookbook devoted to the stuff? This is going in my must try file. I do love a good burger now and then. :)

    enjoy the trip!

  10. Ooo I haven’t played much with sriracha but I bet it’s amazing in a burger!

  11. OMG how amazing do those look. Have fun in my city this weekend it is supposed to be gorgeous!!!

  12. Now that’s a burger! Jacob loves thy hot sauciness. Book marking!

    Sounds like a kick butt workout! What kinda drills did you do?

  13. OH MY GOSH…this looks amaaazzziingg!
    I don’t know if I could utter any other words. I am not a huge meat eater, but I think I’ll make an exception.
    Have a great time in Chicago, Nicole!

  14. This is much better than the extra lean burger I posted about on my blog a few minutes ago. This looks like the perfect burger!

  15. Every once on awhile I get a burger craving and it’s so good! that looks yum!

  16. Okay, glad you said that 4 tablespoons of sriracha wasn’t too much – I was afraid of that – holy shizz, I am making these.

    Hope you have a safe trip home – the weather is supposed to be pretty good – low 80′s! And yes, that was my shortest.post.ever! :D The stairmaster kicked my butt this morning!

  17. These look absolutely incredible. Three of my favorite things are caramelized onions, bleu cheese, and bacon. This is my ideal burger! I’ve not yet been to Thurman’s, but it’s on our “to eat” list! I seriously want to make these burgers stat!

  18. I’m not a big meat eater, but there seems to be one night every summer that I have a massive burger craving. This burger sounds perfect. I like that you used swiss cheese. I love swiss cheese, but I don’t think I’ve ever had it on a burger before.

  19. Omg drool worthy! That burger looks incredibly

  20. Oh boy does that look like an incredible burger! I’m kind-of a wimp when it comes to spicy heat but I would definitely brave a burger that looks this good! Hope you have a wonderful time with your family and friends this weekend!

  21. Gotta love sriracha. It’s right up there with buffalo sauce for me on the love spectrum. Have fun in Chicago!

  22. Today, I’m a woman of few words. I can only say “please send burger”! :) Have a great day Nicole…damn, I really want a burger now!!!!

  23. You know my love for burgers :)

  24. I like burgers of the bean variety, but yes! It should have sriracha! :D

  25. #1 That burger looks good. I still love a classic bacon cheese burger, but that thing looks so good with the blue cheese. I’ve never had Sriracha though. I’ll have to look into it.

    #2 Nice job on the workout. Training is sports is such an awesome way to exercise while playing & having fun.

  26. I love sriracha. Sounds like a great addition to a burger. I really like grilled onions on a burger. I find they add so much flavor that I don’t need much else…
