Bacon & Bleu Burgers
This hamburger recipe came out of playing around with bleu cheese. Well, and having a hankerin’ for some good ole fashioned hamburgers. My husband is a huge fan of bacon but not so much of bleu cheese. However, I have found that he will eat blue cheese if it mixed in well with the beef and has a subtle, not overpowering flavor. And the bleu cheese taste is so subtle that even if you aren’t a fan of bleu cheese, you will like these. If you love bleu cheese, finish them off by melting some bleu cheese crumbles on top just before removing them from the grill.
