Yesterday I made the stuffed peppers with half of my ground beef and instead of freezing the other 1/2lb I have decided to make burgers, but as I still have blue cheese from the Buffalo Chicken recipe I have decided to make a Buffalo Blue Burger with blue cheese & fried onions. A simple mid week recipe that is easy to make after work.
Buffalo Blue Burger – Makes 2 Burgers
1/2 lb Ground Beef (I am using 93% beef)
3TB Blue Cheese Crumbles
3-4 Shakes Worcestershire Sauce
3-4 Shakes Hot Sauce
1/2 Egg – Scrambled
Salt & Pepper
1tsp Olive Oil
Mix all ingredients except onion and olive oil together and form into 2 patties. To separate an egg into 1/2 an egg scramble in a cup and pour in half of the mix. Pan Fry or Grill the burger, as I do not have a grill I will be pan frying my burgers, first over medium heat for a minute, then I turn it down to medium heat. I like to incorporate the blue cheese crumbles into the meat so each bite gets cheese and I don’t have to worry about it falling off the burger when I try to add it in the last few minutes.
Taste Tip: If you are unsure if you have had added enough spices to the meat, prior to cooking make a small 1/4″ ball of the mixture and microwave it for about 20-30 seconds until it is cooked through. This will give you a little taste test to let you know if you need to add a little more spice to your burger or if it is good as is. This is a great way to test meat balls, burgers and meatloaf.
While the burgers are frying up toss some thinly sliced onions in olive oil and saute. When finished you can add to the top of your burger and enjoy!
