I don’t remember where I first saw this recipe but I have since seen it all over the internet ~ must be because it’s grilling season 🙂
This particular version also has mushrooms in the middle of the burger which you can easily leave out if you are not a mushroom fan. I put them in but didn’t think they really added anything to the overall taste of the burger.
Black and Blue Burgers
2 pounds ground beef (80/20)
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1 6.5 ounce can sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup blackening seasoning
6 hamburger rolls
lettuce, tomato, onion slices for topping the burgers if desired
Make 12 very thin patties out of the burger. On 6 of the burgers place a bit of blue cheese and a couple of mushrooms in the middle. Top with the other 6 burgers and seal the edges. Sprinkle with blackening seasoning on both sides.
Grill to your desired degree of doneness. Place on rolls (grilled or not) and top with your favorite toppings.
Makes 6 servings.
