Italian Burger - An Affair from the Heart
ITALIAN BURGER Italian sausage and lean Ground beef, grilled to perfection and topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, marinara and fresh basil served up on a garlic bread bun!


Last year, I made this Italian Burger.  We absolutely loved it!  One of my favorite burgers I have ever made.  And I have made LOTS of BURGERS.  


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
  • egg
  • crumbled Bleu cheese
  • tomato slices
  • dry mustard
  • seasoned pepper
  • toasted buns



Red, White & Bleu Burger

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.  



Red, White & Bleu Burger

 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.  


Red, White & Bleu Burger

Evenly divide the meat, and form into 4 patties.  Look at those chunks of bleu cheese! YUM!


Red, White & Bleu Burger

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.


Red, White & Bleu Burger

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.  


Red, White & Bleu Burger

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!
