Despite all the back to schooly stuff going on, summer’s not over. Live up the lingering days of the season with these Spicy Sausage Burgers.

Spicy Sausage Burger - Despite all the back to schooly stuff going on, summer's not over. Live it up with these Spicy Sausage Burgers.

Despite the fact that the kids and I are finishing our first week of school, the calendar and the warm weather both concur that summer is still here. Fall doesn’t officially begin for another month, so let’s not rush things, eh? As much as I love pumpkin pie and my Salted Carmel Frappucinos, I’m not quite ready to close the books on summer.

At our house we’re looking forward to a long weekend as we celebrate FishChick Day on Monday. The baby is going to be six! We’ve got family coming in from out of town which means I need to prepare to feed the masses. The birthday girl has determined the menu for Monday, but I’ve still got to feed folks on Sunday. I want to make it easy. I tend to overdo. Ahem.

One of the options I’m contemplating are these delicious Spicy Sausage Burgers. They are juicy and flavorful and so mouthwatering delicious….

Just the idea of this burger makes me start to drool. Spicy sausage, sautéed onions and peppers, and an herbed mayo? Yum! Excuse me while I go get a napkin.

These burgers are dairy-free and very make-ahead. You could make them gluten-free by swapping out the bun. We like them with hot Italian sausage, but if you prefer things to be less spicy, feel free to use mild sausage.

Be on the lookout for sales on Italian sausage. If you can’t find it in your price range, feel free to use ground beef or turkey. There won’t be the same spicy kick, but the sauteed vegetables and herbed mayo will still create a great burger.

    Looks yummy. Would you mind sharing your cole slaw recipe? I’m guessing that’s what’s also on the plate.
