  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • olive oil, to coat hamburger patties
  • cheese slices (we use mozzarella or colby jack)
  • additional blue cheese dressing to drizzle, optional
  • hamburger rolls
  • lettuce, tomatoes, pickles (optional)


  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees).

  2. In a large bowl, add in the egg, seasonings, blue cheese dressing, beef and bread crumbs.

  3. Mix all ingredients together well.  Form into four equal sized hamburger patties.

  4. Rub each hamburger patty with olive oil to prevent sticking to the grill.

  5. Cook on grill 8 to 10 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 8 to 10 minutes.

  6. Add cheese slices at the last two minutes, optional.

  7. Place hamburgers on rolls.  Drizzle with additional blue cheese, optional.  Garnish lettuce, tomatoes and pickles, optional.

Recipe Notes

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