Introduction: Blue Cheese Burger Patties

These burgers will serve you well for when you’re looking for more than the run of the mill burger. These are simple to make, allowing you to enjoy gourmet tasting burgers right from home

Step 1: What You Will Need: Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs ground beef (leanness is your preference. Less lean will be juicier and more lean healthier. I used 85% lean)

2oz. blue cheese

1/4 cup chives (chopped)

1/8 teaspoon hot sauce

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon pepper

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Buns (something hearty, like pretzel)

Step 2: What You Will Need: Supplies

Large plastic bowl

Misc. measuring spoons and cups (standard)

Cutting board

Knife (for chopping chives)

Plastic wrap

Step 3: Making the Patties

WARNING: Raw beef may contain bacteria and cause food poisoning. Wash your hands immediately after handling

the beef

1. Using the cutting board and knife chop ¼ cup worth of fresh chives

2. Combine all ingredients into the bowl

3. Mix thoroughly (hands are best used to mix evenly)

4. Leave in the bowl and cover in plastic wrap and let set in the refrigerator for around 2 hours

5. After the mixture has set, divide into individual patties (makes 4-6 patties.)

Step 4: Cooking the Patties

Grill the patties until cooked to your liking (well done, medium, etc.). If you do not have a grill, broil them in a large Pyrex dish and flip them after 5-10 minutes (I used this method personally, works great)

Caution: Keep patties on a lower rack in the oven if broiling. This will keep them from cooking too quickly on the outside and leaving the inside under cooked.

Serve on the buns and enjoy

Step 5: Cleanup

Thoroughly wash all utensils and surfaces, particularly those that came into contact with the beef. Use either disinfectant wipes or soap and hot water to clean any drops or spills.
