These turned out really well and the flavor was superb. I will make 4 burgers instead of 6 next time - I was trying to be frugal, but they really were too small. I cooked these under the broiler. I'm glad I did because I asked my son to make the patties and he couldn't quite get them to stick together enough. We lost quite a bit of filling into the bottom of the broiler pan. I think it is possible to get them to stay together, though, so I will try harder next time and possibly grill them. Most of us ate these without buns, and tried them with mayonnaise and A1 in addition to the bacon and spring mix lettuce. I had a couple of requests to incorporate the bacon into the burger next time (either in the filling or mixed with the meat) so I might try that. I was short an ounce of blue cheese because most brands here come in 5 oz or 4 oz packages so I went for 5 oz.
Very yummy and easy to make! My DH loves blue cheese and these were a hit with him. So delicious! My sons also enjoyed them as they are big hamburger fans. Made for Kid Friendly tag.
