Bleu Bacon Burger

Bleu Bacon Burgers
(8 servings)


2 lb. Ground Chuck (85/15 or 80/20)
1 – 2.8 oz. jar Hormel Bacon Pieces
1 – 5 oz. tub Bleu Cheese Crumbs
2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
As needed: Lawry’s Season Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Black Pepper
8 Hamburger Buns of your choice, toasted on grill


In a large bowl, mix the ground chuck, bacon, bleu cheese and Worcestershire sauce.  Then form the mixture into 8 four ounce patties with your hands.  Refrigerate the patties while you get the grill ready.  When you are ready to put the patties on the grill, sprinkle them with a good dose of the four spices.  Put them on the grill seasoned side down and repeat seasoning on the top side.  Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per side depending on thickness and desired doneness.  I like mine a little pink.  That also helps keep them from drying out.

Note:   If you really like cheese, try topping each burger with a slice of sharp

Note:   If you are not into bleu cheese then try crumbed feta.

Note:   The numbers behind the ground chuck are the meat to fat percentages.  Either of these will give you the best flavor for ground beef.  My personal opinion is that ground chuck at those percentages is the only way to go for burgers.

Note:   You can adjust the amounts of bacon and cheese to meet your personal tastes.  If you make larger burger patties, it will add a little time to the cooking process.
