Recipe: Grilled Blue-Cheese Burgers
This weekend I'm grilling burgers—what could be better? My tastes tend to prefer healthy, reduced-fat food—except when it comes to burgers. When making a traditional burger, I select a chuck grind which has a higher fat-to-meat ratio. It makes the best burgers, to my palate.
- 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- 4 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon sour cream or yogurt
- 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 2 pounds hamburger, ground chuck, or sirloin
- 1 tablespoon finely grated onion
- 6 hamburger buns
- Lettuce and tomatoes
1. In a bowl, cream together blue cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, and horseradish. ?
2. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to high heat. Oil grill grates.?
3. Spread the beef onto a cutting board and sprinkle with the grated onion. Combine onions into beef and form into 6 patties. Season both sides of beef with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Grill burgers, with lid down, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. ?
4. Divide and spread blue cheese sauce on cut side of each bun half then place burger in bun with lettuce and sliced tomato.
