These are just simply magnificent. They really can be made with any cheese but topping them with bleu at the end of grilling makes for the gooiest, most delicious flavored burger ever. I have made these for company over and over and based on the reviews will never stop. SO easy to put together and I often make the patties up to 8 hours ahead of time so that I can just throw them on the grill and not have to fuss while entertaining. Serve these on top of your favorite hamburger rolls or like I do; wrapped in a large romaine lettuce leaf and topped with red onion, tomato and mustard. I mean, do you see that cheese dripping down the sides? Wait till you taste them. I’m salivating.
Bleu Cheese Burgers
1 Pound Angus Ground Beef, preferably 85% lean
2 Green Onions, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Dijon
1 Egg, lightly beaten
4-6 Ounces Bleu Cheese, crumbled
Preheat grill over high heat. In a large bowl add green onions, dijon and egg and stir to combine. Add beef and mix with your hands until just combined; try not to over mix. Divide mixture into four portions and shape into burger patties. Season both sides of the burgers liberally with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook for about 7 minutes, with the lid closed. Flip burgers over and cook for another 6 minutes or until desired doneness. Turn off the grill, top the burgers with bleu cheese and close the lid until the cheese just begins to melt, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and serve.
