Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Here’s another post from the Entertaining Recipes Grilling Made Simple e-Cookbook! Look out for it soon!
This recipe is adopted from The Spotted Pig Restaurant in NYC. It has by far the BEST burger I’ve ever had. It’s a 2 hour wait to get into this place, mostly because of there delicious burger. This burger tastes very close to the one there, and it’s equally delicious!!
Here’s a tip, although you might be tempted to go with extra lean hamburger meat for this burger, I don’t recommend it. The fattier meat is much juicier and tastier!
1 pound ground beef
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 cloves minced garlic
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 Tbsp water
Coarse Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 Tbsp breadcrumbs
bacon, cooked and drained (optional)
Special Equipment: Charcoal Grill
Put ground beef, mustard, garlic, onions, blue cheese, water, breadcrumb and egg into a large bowl. Use your hands to gently mix the ingredients together until just incorporated. Do not over-mix. Shape into patties, about 1/2 inch thick and larger than your bun. Chill until you are ready to cook (a few hours is good to let ingredients incorporate).
Prepare charcoal or gas grill for cooking over high direct heat. Using tongs and a folded up paper towel dipped in vegetable oil, oil the grill grates. Make sure grill is hot and well oiled before laying down the patties. Season patties with salt and pepper. Place the patties on the clean, well-oiled grill grate. Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes per side. Do not press down on the burgers while cooking.
If you don’t have a grill, you can use a grill pan or a cast iron frying pan for the burgers.
Layer hamburger buns with lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup, bacon, the burger, and sprinkle additional blue cheese on the top!
