Sunny Anderson’s Spicy Green Goddess Burgers Have a ‘Lot of Herby Moments’

Food Network star Sunny Anderson’s fresh and spicy Green Goddess Burger is the perfect grilling recipe, accenting the brightness of the season along with a juicy burger.

Anderson’s recipe might just become your zesty go-to dish for summer get-togethers.

The culinary personality’s spin on the meaty part of this classic summertime staple calls for just four ingredients: ground chuck, kosher salt, ground cumin, and freshly ground black pepper.

She reveals in the Food Network video, below, for this recipe that the secret to mixing the meat is all in the hands: “The way I mix this is with my less dominant hand in a mixing bowl. I kind of make pitchforks [with her fingers] and just kind of fold it together, not squeezing and mixing like I saw growing up.”

The co-host of The Kitchen adds that she makes four patties out of a pound and a half of meat. “You make them whatever size you want,” she continues.

On a grill heated to about 400 degrees, Anderson places the patties “over the direct heat.”

Sunny Anderson’s burgers are all about their verdant topping

What takes Anderson’s burger recipe to a whole other level is its zippy Green Goddess glaze made by stirring together jalapeño jelly, chopped scallion, diced jalapeño, and chopped fresh cilantro, dill, parsley, and mint.

“To these, I’m going to add a luscious glaze that’s very simple to make … it’s going to be everything you get from Green Goddess flavors, which is going to be a lot of herby moments,” the Cooking for Real host says. “This is what’s going to go on top of the burger while it’s on the grill.”

Adding to the green-ness of these burgers is an avocado cream that Anderson seasons, mashes, and smears into each toasted bun, “kind of like mayo or something like that; man, every single bite is going to get that avocado love.”
