Blue Cheese Burgers

I love blue cheese. I don’t know why, but I just do. And when I found this recipe, I just knew I had to try it!

The Recipe:
1 lb. ground beef
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1 egg
1 tbsp. water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Hamburger buns
Toppings of your choice: lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise

1. In a large bowl, add beef, mustard, garlic, onions, blue cheese, water, and egg. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper. Use your hands to gently mix the ingredients together until just incorporated (don’t over work the meat). Shape into patties, about 1/2 inch thick and larger than your bun, press a small thumb print in the middle. Chill until you are ready to cook.

2. Preheat grill to high. Clean and oil the grates using tongs and a folded up paper towel dipped in vegetable oil.

3. Season patties with salt and pepper. Place patties on hot, well-oiled grill. Grill burgers about 5 minutes per side. Do not press down on the burgers while cooking.

4. Serve on hamburger buns with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.

Blue Cheese Burgers

My Experience:

So yummy. The blue cheese throughout was so good. I actually added a super thin slice to the top on my burger but that’s because I obsessed. My fiancé, who isn’t a huge fan of blue cheese, still really liked the burgers because it wasn’t too strong.

For the toppings, I just used the lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Not too sure what else would work with this burger when considering the blue cheese, but have fun with it.
