Blue Cheese BurgersWine Pairings: Bordeaux Red Blend
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp water
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 French rolls or hamburger buns
Gently mix ground beef with the other ingredients: Put ground beef, mustard, garlic, onions, blue cheese, water, egg, and a dash of salt and pepper into a large bowl. Use your hands to gently mix the ingredients together, but try not to over-mix.
Shape into patties and chill: Shape into patties, about 1/2 inch thick and larger than your bun. Refrigerate until you are ready to cook.
Prepare grill for cooking over high direct heat. Make sure grill is hot and well oiled before laying down the patties.
Season and grill the burgers: Season patties with salt and pepper. Place the patties on the clean, well-oiled grill grate. Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes per side. Do not press down on the burgers while cooking.
Serve on hamburger buns with lettuce and mayonnaise, or your choice of condiments.
