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)
Knife (for chopping chives)
Step 3: Making the Patties
WARNING: Raw beef may contain bacteria and cause food poisoning. Wash your hands immediately after handling
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.
