Blue Cheese Burgers

It is an amazing March day here on the western plains of the Enchanted Mitten. It is 71F and sunny as I type this post.  It is a perfect day for grilling.  We decided to fire up our Weber grill this evening and make hamburgers.  

- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 green onion, minced
- 4-5 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper to taste

Crack the egg into a large dish and scramble the yolk and the egg whites.  Add the ground beef, mustard, garlic, onions and salt and pepper to taste and blend well.  Once  blended, add the blue cheese and blend again.  Do not over blend. Shape the mixture into patties and keep cold until ready to cook.

Prepare a fire in your grill.  When the fire is ready, grill the burgers for approximately 5 minutes per side.  Do not press down on the patties while cooking.  When the burgers are done, remove them from the grill and serve on hamburger buns.  

Cook's Notes:
We used All American Season from Mickey T's Rubs and Spices instead of salt and pepper.  I cannot recommend his spices and rubs more strongly.  

We will serve these burgers with cole slaw, seasoned french fries and grilled zucchini.  Full report to follow after we have this meal.  As ever, cocktails are at 6:30PM, sharp.

Full Report
Fan_freakin_tastic.   A couple of notes.  We would, next time, ADD more blue cheese, drizzling some on the top of the burger after the flip.  And a friend suggested adding bacon.  Next time!
