Charles loves anything with blue cheese. I'm not really a fan. So when he's on the road, he eats out (at the company's expense) and frequently orders blue cheese burgers or salads.
He found a great recipe in a grilling book to try when we had friends over. Some of them love blue cheese too, so it was the perfect time to try it. All who ate the burgers raved about them.
Here's what you'll need:
2 lbs ground beef
1/2 teas. celery seed
2 TBSP minced onion
1 TBSP minced garlic
1/2 cup to 1 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup mild hot sauce
Using your hands, mix all the ingredients but the hot sauce. Shape into 8 patties.
Grill for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, basting with the hot sauce. When you take the burgers off the grill, give them one more brushing with the sauce. Garnish with your favorite burger toppings.
I'm sorry I don't have a picture of the finished burgers, but they were scarfed up quickly.
