Ground Beef and Bleu Cheeseburger

Start with our pasture-raised meat, and you are almost guaranteed a juicy, succulent burger. Blue cheese adds piquancy, but just leave it out if your kids won't eat blue cheese, however small it's crumbled.

YIELD: 6 ea, 6 oz Burgers

PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOKING TIME: 10 minutes


2 lb Ground Beef

4 oz blue cheese, crumbled

½ yellow onion, finely diced

1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped

½ tablespoon garlic powder

½ tablespoon onion powder

½ tablespoon kosher salt

½ tablespoon black pepper, ground


Saute the onions on medium heat until slightly brown around the edges

Add the garlic and stir for a further minute. Remove from the heat

Once cool, add to a large mixing bowl with all of the other ingredients and combine until fully incorporated

Marinate overnight or form your meatballs right now

Form 6oz burgers, about 3/4" thick

Sear on high heat for about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare beef

The beef will be cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit


I recommend tasting your first burger for seasoning prior to cooking all of the mixture

These cheeseburgers can be cooked on a grill, as well
