Red, White & Bleu Burger – a ground beef burger, made with bacon and bleu cheese, grilled to perfection, and topped with juicy tomato slices, crumbled bleu cheese and applewood smoked bacon on a buttery toasted bun!
Red, white and blue — the colors of America. Red, White and Bleu Burger? Color ME hungry!
This post is part of a kick-butt burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore but this awesome burger is all my own.
Burger Month –
It’s here!! May is deemed BURGER MONTH! The wonderful Girl Carnivore hosts this event each year, and the month is FILLED with tasty burger recipes, and an EPIC Grilling Kit Prize worth over $800! (keep scrolling to enter to win!)
^LOVE IT? PIN IT!^
I participated in this fun event last year, and I knew that I would be joining in again this year. Anytime I can partner up with this kind of talent, and bring you a chance to win a terrific prize package like this? Heck, yea! You know that I am in.
Plus, helllooooooo … burger taste testing!!
This year, I decided to do two burgers, and this Red, White & Bleu Burger is the first. Coming up on the 19th, I have a Bloody Mary Burger — you’ll want to tune in for that!
Red, White & Bleu Burger Ingredients:
- ground beef
- thick cut smoked bacon
- crumbled Bleu cheese
- tomato slices
- dry mustard
- seasoned pepper
- toasted buns
Cook up 10 slices of thick smoked bacon. Crumble two of them, and reserve the rest. You will be using part of the Bleu cheese in your patties and the rest to top your burger. Slice tomatoes, set aside.
Combine the ground beef, bacon, egg, Bleu cheese, dry mustard and seasoned pepper in a bowl. I didn’t add any additional salt. It got plenty of saltiness from the cheese and bacon.
Evenly divide the meat, and form into 4 patties. Look at those chunks of bleu cheese! YUM!
We set our grill to 350 degrees, and they were cooked perfectly 9 minutes on each side. A “well-done” burger will need to have an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
While your burgers are on the grill, butter the insides of your buns and drop them into a skillet to toast them, like you would a grilled cheese. In my opinion, it really makes the burgers taste so much better.
We slathered on some mayo, then topped the burgers with the tomato slices, bacon and crumbled Bleu cheese. The flavor was out of this world. Even my hubby, who really doesn’t care for Bleu cheese, ate it and loved it. Then ate half of mine, too!
