Black and Bleu Hamburger Recipe

Posted by

Spring has finally arrived here in the Midwest. Although we woke to showers this morning, the promise of 72° temperatures has made us very happy. We are already planning what we will be throwing on the grill tonight for dinner. Before we have even had breakfast. Or coffee. Which is dangerous. Don’t try this at home.

This hamburger recipe is one of our new favorites. This time we served it traditional style with the basic lettuce, tomato and onion but it is great with grilled pineapple slices and bacon. It is actually pretty amazing on its own and would probably make a good meatloaf but come on – it’s spring time and we are outside grilling and we want to eat stuff while standing around a fire pit with a cold beer. These burgers do the trick. And it is crazy easy.

Black and Bleu Burgers

Black & Blue Burger

2 # 75-80% lean ground beef (if grinding at home use the 1/4″ grind setting)
16 oz bleu cheese crumbles
Bayou Blackening Seasoning

1 teaspoon Salt
Pepper (to taste)
Spray Oil

In a large bowl, gently combine the ground beef, bleu cheese crumbles, salt, and pepper.

Divide into 6-8 equal portions (depending on the size of burger you want) and form your patty. Do not over work the meat. Once the patty sticks together, stop. (Pro tip: Making a 1″ round dimple in the center of the patty will stop burger shrinkage.)

Place the patties on wax or parchment paper on a baking pan (this helps with its removal when it is time to grill) and spray lightly with oil.

Sprinkle a generous dusting of Bayou Blackening Seasoning on the top of each patty. Cover and set aside.

Start your grill and make sure your grates are clean and well oiled.

Place the burgers blackened side up on the grill and cook for 3-5 minutes. Flip and cook 3-5 additional minutes for a MEDIUM burger. (DO NOT press down on the burger. All you will do is press out all of the delicious juices.)

Let rest 5 minutes then serve.

Enjoy your delicious black and bleu hamburger recipe!
