Bacon Blue Cheese Burger

Bacon Blue Cheese Burger

Bacon blue cheeseburgers always make my mouth water when I see them on a restaurant menu but I never order them because they are so fattening. I was craving a juicy cheeseburger, so I decided to make a healthier version of the blue cheese and bacon burger at home. I used lean ground beef, a bit of blue cheese, and a piece of lean bacon to make a fantastic-tasting burger. I served this burger with baked steak fries and fry sauce for a delicious meal. This dinner tasted so much better than the local fast food restaurant and it was much healthier too.

How to Make a Blue Cheese and Bacon Burger:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of onion powder
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked
  • Tomato slices
  • Lettuce
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted

How to Make a Bacon Blue Cheese Burger

Combine the lean ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder together (don’t work the meat too much). Form the beef mixture into 4 patties. Season each side of the patty with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Heat a grill pan coated in cooking spray over medium heat. Once the pan is HOT add the patties and cook about 3-4 minutes then flip. Break a slice of bacon in half and add to the burger then top with a bit of blue cheese. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until your desired degree of doneness.

Fry Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • Dash of dill pickle juice, to taste

  6. The whole meal makes my mouth water! Hubs loves bacon and blue cheese and it's grillin' time in my part of California. Comin' up!

  7. Dear Fortheloveofcooking, this burger is awesome. I love the sauce you made by combining the ketchup and mayo. I make that sauce every time I eat cheeseburgers because it reminds me of In-N-Out burgers. Well presented, clean, clear and beautiful photos. I shall be returning for another delicious bite. Thank you for sharing.
    Cheers, Gaby
