The master of the grill is my wonderful husband. This recipe is one of his creations that I wanted to share with you!

What makes this blue cheese burger recipe better than others?

We added some blue cheese dressing to add some flavor to the burgers. And if you love blue cheese (like me!), you can always add more blue cheese dressing on top of the hamburger once it is cooked.

How to make Blue Cheese Burgers:

Beat the egg in a medium to large-sized bowl. Add in the garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Then add in blue cheese, beef, and bread crumbs. Mix all ingredients together well.

Place a piece of parchment paper on your counter to make an easy to clean up work area. Form into four equal-sized hamburger patties.

My husband loves to use a hamburger press to make a nice, perfectly shaped burger.  It also helps keep the burger from falling apart because it packs it in tightly.  My husband uses it each time he makes burgers.

Rub each side of the hamburger patties with olive oil. This step prevents them from sticking to the grill.

Place them on the grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes for each side.  If you are adding cheese slices, add them to the burgers at the last two minutes so they can melt nicely.

Once cooked, place each burger on a bun. If you are looking for more blue cheese, because you love blue cheese and well, why not…drizzle a little more over your burger.

Then we usually add some lettuce, tomato, and pickles and you have yourself one delicious grilled hamburger!

Recipe tips:

Rub each side of the burger with olive oil to prevent them from sticking to the grill.

For a low-carb option, omit the roll.

    Have you ever frozen freshly made hamburgers? If so, do you cook them directly from the freezer or should I let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight?

    1. Jeannie Z says:

      I have never done that myself Bobby but I did a little research for you. From what I read, you can cook them right from the freezer to the grill. However, it sounds like they would cook more evenly and you will get a tastier burger if you let them thaw before cooking them. I would let them defrost in the refrigerator overnight before cooking them.

      Hope this helps!

    Thanks Jeannie for the follow-up. I plan to make a bunch of them ahead of time and throw them in the freezer. Thawing in the refrigerator sounds like the way to go. More flavor is always better!!
