Tonight I was going through one of my boxes of old recipe clippings and came across this oddity. I used to save any recipe I came across regardless of whether it sounded good or I would be likely to make it. This one is neither, it sounds weird and would probably taste weird too. I can kind of understand the breakfast sausage in the hamburger bun part, there are all types of breakfast sandwiches out there. The small amount of barbecue sauce is ok but I draw the line at the bean sprouts. What possessed some magazine food editor to include them in this recipe? I can not think of one reason to add them except if La Choy was sponsoring the recipe and this isn't an ad it is just a recipe from an article.
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
2 tablespoons bottled barbecue sauce
5 hamburger buns, split
1 8-oz. package brown and serve sausage links
1 1-pounds can bean sprouts, drained
Blend butter and barbecue sauce together; spread over cut surfaces of the buns. Split sausages in half lengthwise. Arrange over bottom halves of buns. Top each with 1/2 cup bean sprouts; cover with other half of bun. Wrap in aluminum foil. Buns may be prepared ahead of time and stored in refrigerator. To serve, heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake 10 to 15 minutes. Makes 5 burgers.
