These were really great!! I did do a few changes though...first was the addition of bacon. I fried and crumbled a pound of bacon and added it to the mixture. I also added an additional tsp of Worcestershire sauce and when they were all done, melted some additional blue cheese crumbles on top. My family (including 2 really picky son-in-laws and one realll picky daughter)all LOVED them. They are definitaly going to be on the menu again and again here. I also recommend you use an 80/20 ground beef. You do need some fat in these for flavor. Try them....if you like the tang of blue cheese, you will love these and if you aren't worried about the calories...go for the bacon addition!-03 Aug 2006

Very good. I wanted to try this exactly by the recipe to fairly evaluate as written but I must admit I added a little bit of minced garlic and used more bleu cheese because I love the taste of it. I was very pleased with this recipe.-18 Aug 2007

Great burgers. Made this for a Father's Day dinner for my husband and his best friend. They each had two. Raves from everyone. I was expecting a very different taste. Excellent recipe. Will make again and again. Served with corn on the cob with a herbed butter and a grilled potato and green onion salad served on top of mixed greens with a blue cheese vinigarette. Did increase the blue cheese to four ounces for six burgers; also increased the sauces.-16 Jun 2003


Recipe Summary

  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ cup minced fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • ¾ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 12 hamburger rolls, split
  • 12 slices cooked bacon
  • 4 ounces blue cheese

Mix ground beef, chives, steak sauce, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce together in a bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

Form beef mixture into 12 patties.

Cook the patties until they are firm, hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C). Put burgers on split rolls top with bacon and blue cheese to serve.


Preparation

  • Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire.
  • Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until golden and soft, about 20 minutes reduce the heat to low if the onions begin to brown too quickly.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, thoroughly mix the beef, tarragon, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce with your hands. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  • Oil the grill grate. Grill the burgers, covered, for 3 minutes. Flip the burgers and top with the cheese. Cover and continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into a burger registers 130°F for medium rare, about 4 minutes more, or 145°F for medium, about 6 minutes more.
  • When the burgers are nearly done, toast the rolls cut side down on the grill until browned and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve the burgers in the rolls, topped with the caramelized onions.

For your Memorial Day cookout, serve these burgers with Chopped Vegetable & Couscous Salad or Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad. Mini Mixed-Berry Tarts make for a patriotic dessert.

Gather your blue cheese burger ingredients

You will need one and a half pounds of 80% fat ground beef, one teaspoon paprika, three-fourths of a teaspoon salt, three-fourths of a teaspoon dried parsley, half a teaspoon of dried onion, a quarter teaspoon of dried garlic, three-fourths of a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, fresh ground pepper to taste, half a cup of buffalo sauce (plus more if desired), one cup blue cheese crumbles, and four hamburger buns. As for additional toppings, you can use your choice of mayonnaise, whole grain mustard, lettuce, tomato, and friend onions.

When it comes to the type of blue cheese you want in your burger, there are a few options recipe creator Mackenzie Ryan recommends for different flavor profiles.

"In ranking order, I like Stilton when I'm in a strong blue cheese mood, Gorgonzola for a more balanced profile, or Cambozola when I want something a bit creamier," Ryan says. "If I wanted to pick out a brand-specific cheese, I would always recommend Oregon Blue from Rogue Creamery. It's a Roquefort-style blue cheese that is just phenomenal. They also have a smoky version that is fantastic."

Blue Cheese Burgers

Blue cheese burgers are the third and final recipe for beef week, I mean water-buffalo week here on HK. I started with a recipe for steak with herb butter and then a Keto chilli con carne. It was only fitting that I included a burger on the menu as well. For the hamburger buns we’re using my Keto microwave mug bread recipe. We’ll be cooking the burgers on the stove top and making a delicious secret (not really) burger sauce to go with it.
