Bacon Double-Blue Cheese Hamburgers

My family and friends really enjoy homemade hamburgers. We’re always experimenting with different homemade hamburgers recipes and trying out exciting taste combinations. Sometimes they actually get a little wild. The following burger recipe, however, doesn’t really fall into that category. These hamburgers aren’t all that unusual, but they’re definitely tasty! I call them bacon double-blue cheese burgers. Why blue cheese? If you haven’t tried blue cheese with beef burgers, you’re missing out! The two flavors go wonderfully together.
Why “double”? It’s not because each serving contains two hamburger patties, and you don’t double the amount of bacon you’d normally add to a bacon burger. The “double” refers to the blue cheese. With this burger recipe, you get two hits of blue cheese – one on the inside of the burger and one on the outside of the burger. Are you ready for this?
Bacon Double-Blue Cheese Hamburgers recipe
Ingredients you’ll need:
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
16 strips bacon
½ cup bottled blue cheese dressing
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon minced garlic
8 French rolls or hamburger buns
Directions: Combine ground beef with salt and pepper. Add blue cheese and form into eight hamburger patties. Refrigerate until firm. While the burgers are firming in the fridge, fry the bacon until almost crisp.
Get the grill ready.
Cook the hamburger patties over medium to medium-high heat until almost done. At that point, move the burgers to a cool area of the grill and place the bacon on top to warm – two slices of bacon per patty. Close the grill lid.
Make the hamburger sauce by combining blue cheese dressing, sugar, and minced garlic.
Remove burgers from the grill carefully and place on buns or rolls. Top with blue cheese sauce.
