Dr Pepper Spoonburgers

Cast your vote for Dr Pepper Spoonburgers

A Brief Introduction

This recipe, like most of my family's recipes, came about through trial and error. It's a nod to my late Uncle Dick, who spent many years working at Dr Pepper. Home cooking is one way our family members show love and care.

The taste of the soda is subtle, complimenting the zesty Tabasco sauce. For my own family, this recipe is a nice change from the usual "tomato soup + salsa" version I usually make.

Since Dr Pepper was made with real sugar when my great-aunt developed this recipe, I put a link to that version of Dr Pepper for a "throwback" flavor. Regular Dr Pepper, however, works just fine.

For a milder flavor, use sweet yellow onions in this dish.
