Are you ready for your summer BBQs? Do you have the ultimate burger recipe in hand?
My family is not huge fans of burgers. Don’t get me wrong we have them but a burger can just be..well a burger, if you know what I mean. So when we make burgers they are anything but basic – we add flavor, texture, and substance, if you will.
We like burgers that leave you thinking ‘Damn! That was a good burger!’ And let me tell you this recipe is just that – AWESOME!!!
If you love a good burger that will make your family fall in love – give this one a chance! It starts off with my homemade burger seasoning, gets topped with my Fried Onion Strings and ends with a masterpiece!
And this recipe couldn’t be more simple. If you’ve ever ordered a black n’ bleu burger at a restaurant and completely fell in love…left you wishing you could have one every day for the rest of your life – your have found what you are looking for. All you do is season the beef with my homemade burger seasoning. Grill those patties to your desired hamburger doneness, then – and here’s the important part – top the meat with blue cheese blend before taking it off of the grill. Let all of that blue cheese start to get ooey gooey melty and seep down into the burger patty. That’s the key for a really awesome blue cheese burger at home!
