Big Bleu Cheese Burger Bundles

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

What You Need:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ½ large shallot
  • ½ cup bleu cheese, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ground black pepper
  • salt to taste

How to Make It:

  1. Get grill set to medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, mash together the shallot with the bleu cheese.
  3. Separate the ground beef into 4 equal parts and form each part into large thin, flat patties.
  4. Take half the bleu cheese mixture and spread on one pattie (keeping it about a quarter inch away from the edge), and take the remaining half and spread on another pattie.
  5. Put the remaining patties on top of the patties with the bleu cheese and pinch to seal the edges together.
  6. Carefully put burgers on grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, flip and cook another 5 to 6 minutes.  You want to cook them long enough to get to the inside and melt the cheese.

Note – You can divide the beef into six segments to make three smaller burgers.  You can also make 'sliders' by dividing the beef into eight segments to make four 'sliders.'  The recipe above will give you two big (half pound) burgers, but you can adjust to whatever you desire.
