Amazing flavor in a burger at home!

This burger is absolutely the best burger we have ever made in our house. My husband and I have been grilling forever, it seems, and I have never had a burger with more flavor at home. My husband's friend at work, Ed, told us how to make these burgers and it was love at first taste. We both fell head over heels for Ed's bacon-blue burger. Let me also qualify the fact that my husband does not like blue cheese. I never thought he would enjoy this burger, but it is his favorite burger to make now. The taste just cannot be beat. The burger is simply seasoned with only salt and pepper, the rest of the flavor comes from the combination of the bacon and blue cheese.

First, you must chop the bacon up into a fine mush. We use 3 slices of bacon per burger, but it can be done with two slices each. I would not, however, go less than two slices per burger or you will surely lose flavor. Form the chopped bacon into six thin patties. Place these on a greased aluminum foil lined cookie sheet. We have our grill heating while we are making the burgers with all three burners set at medium heat. On top of the bacon press crumbled blue cheese. Form your six burger patties out of ground chuck. Place a patty on top of each bacon-blue cheese patty and lightly press them together to form a seal around the blue cheese. Lightly salt the bottom of the burger patty, it is upside down right now.

When the grill is heated to about 350°, place the cookie sheet with the burgers onto it. Let the burgers cook until the bacon patties are browned and lightly crisped. This will take about 5-7 minutes on the bacon side. Flip the burgers over so the ground chuck patty is down on the bottom directly on the grill. Cook about another 5- 7 minutes. The bacon flavor drips down thru the blue cheese and then into the burger, seasoning it perfectly. Once the burger is cooked to your taste, remove the burgers from the heat and let them cool, or rest, a little before digging in. This will help keep them extremely juicy. These burgers are so good we eat them with only A1 Steak Sauce. Sometimes I don't even use a bun. They stand alone wonderfully. The last time that we made these we used Asiago bread and it was a fantastic pairing with the burgers.

I hope that other people enjoy these burgers as much as we do. We have served them to our neighbors and they have absolutely fallen in love with them, too. You must try them, even if you think you don't like blue cheese. Give them one chance. I know I will always have blue cheese in my house because of these burgers. That makes me extremely happy because I love blue cheese, now that my husband loves these burgers, I'll always have it around!
