If you love blue cheese, these Blue Cheese Burgers are a MUST MAKE this summer! Blue cheese crumbles are folded into the ground beef for blue cheese flavor in every bite.
Burgers are one of my absolute favorite things to grill during the summer. I always love trying new burger ingredient combinations when we go to our favorite burger joint, and also recreating them at home! Blue cheese burgers are one of my go-to burger orders, since I love blue cheese. These Grilled Blue Cheese Burgers are super easy to whip up, and will be your go-to burger recipe this summer!
You really don't need a ton of ingredients to make delicious and juicy blue cheese burgers. This burger recipe uses just 6 ingredients for absolutely irresistible burgers!
Ground Beef - I usually use 85-90% ground beef when I make burgers.
Blue Cheese Crumbles - you can use the pre-crumbled blue cheese or a brick of blue cheese and crumble it yourself. There is blue cheese in the burger mixture as well as on top for maximum blue cheese flavor!
Red Onion - finely diced red onion adds flavor and texture to these burgers.
Dijon Mustard - gives the burger a zest of flavor.
Worcestershire - I love the flavor that Worcestershire gives burgers, and I always add it to my beef burgers.
Fresh Minced Garlic - you just can't go wrong adding garlic to burgers!
This recipe is seriously so simple. To make the burgers, you simply combine all of the ingredients - ground beef, blue cheese crumbles, dijon mustard, red onion, Worcestershire, garlic, and salt, and mix until combined. The important thing is to not over-mix it. They will be much more tender if you handle them less. If you overmix, they will end up too firm.
Divide the beef mixture into four and then form into patties. I always make them as flat as possible and put an indent in the middle of my burger patties to prevent them from puffing up in the middle. I've also started using one of these patty presses to make my homemade burgers!
Next, preheat your grill over medium-high heat. You want the grill grates really hot when you add the burgers. I always add a bit of oil to my grates too, to prevent sticking.
Add the burgers and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side. This will get your burgers to about medium to medium-high heat. If you want them medium-rare, cook them 4 minutes on each side. If you want them well done, do 7 minutes on each side.
To serve, place them on a bun with your preferred toppings. We like lettuce, tomatoes, and red onion, and then more blue cheese crumbles. With these burgers, no amount of blue cheese is too much! We love serving these burgers with macaroni salad or loaded baked potato salad!
Swap out the cheese. Not a fan of blue cheese? Crumbled feta cheese would also work!
Add some bacon. Looking for a bacon blue cheese burger? Throw in two strips of crumbled bacon to the burger mixture or top these blue cheese burgers with sliced bacon.
Jazz up the toppings. These burgers with blue cheese are delicious topped with red onion, lettuce, and tomato, but you can go crazy with the toppings, if you'd like! Caramelized onions, pickled onions, pickles, jalapeños, BBQ sauce, and mixed greens are all delicious!
Storage. Store any leftover burgers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds.
