These southern inspired burgers are delicious and such a nice deviation from traditional hamburgers with the addition of the fabulous green tomato chow chow. Chow chow is a southern side dish of various pickled vegetables and this one features green tomatoes. There are a myriad of wonderful spices that go into the chow chow like celery seeds, dill seed, mustard seeds, turmeric ~ which give it that wonderful yellow glow, and cayenne for a little hit of heat. The onions and tomatoes are cooked with the spices and the addition of vinegar and sugar brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes which you cook all together. You add half of this cooled mixture to the ground beef to make the hamburger patties, and top it off with simply dressed collard greens and a toasted sesame bun. You could make the chow chow several days ahead and keep in the refrigerator. Delicious! The oven fries sprinkled with a little Old Bay spice make it a nice dinner. Click here for the recipe….
