It’s easy to over-complicate making Burger Patties, so it is worth getting back to the basics of just a well ground fatty meat, some salt, and the grill.
Black and Bleu Burger
The perfect burger for summer grilling, the black and bleu burger has blue cheese, a variety of spices, and is topped with crisp bacon. It is easy to prepare ahead of time, refrigerate, then bring out to grill when you’re ready to cook.
Top this savory burger with your favorite condiments, or use our suggestions found in the recipe. This recipe calls for an 80/20 ground beef, but feel free to switch to your preferred blend.
Make sure to toast the bun lightly, right before serving the burgers, for that fully flavored barbecue experience.
2 pounds 80/20 ground beef
4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons Black & Bleu Spice Rub
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic granules
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
blue cheese crumbles
red onion slices
brioche or other hamburger buns
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
In a bowl, add the ground beef, blue cheese crumbles, Black & Bleu spice rub, onion powder, garlic granules, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
Mix by hand just until combined. Form into four patties and dust with more Black & Bleu rub, if desired.
Place on the hot grill, turning every few minutes to prevent burning. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until done to your liking.
Serve immediately with additional toppings.
