I really like the simplicity of the seasoning in this burger. It really allows the natural flavor of the beef to shine and I love the oozy goozy bleu cheese filling. The cream cheese really helps hold it together until it's cooked all the way. It's so much fun to have the tangy, creamy surprise inside the meat, instead of on top. I made these for my boyfriend to boost his morale after a crazy day at a new job. He is singing your praises, kittycatmom. Bravo!!
These were FANTASTIC! Just a cautionary note here: Let the burger sit for a few minutes after grilling, as the filling gets radically hot! Otherwise the flavors are superb! Thanks for posting a keeper!
We dont care for blue cheese but these burgers sounded so good! I asked the chef if it would be ok if I substituted a cheese and she said that would be fine. I used a parmesan blend cheese and it was a nice combination and great burgers but I think they would be awesome with the blue cheese as written. Think we will be trying these again with the correct cheese! Thank you sweets for posting this recipe. :)
Wow is this good! The combination of cream and bleu cheeses is wonderful! A few notes on our prep though, we made these right away without chilling the cheese mixture. We made 8 - 1/4 lb burgers, then lightly pressed the cheese mixture into the center of 4 burgers, then topped them with the other 4 patties and sealed them up. They cooked for about 15 minutes total, and we gobbled em up. Thanks for sharing a great burger recipe. :)
kittycatmom, you've hit the jackpot! I've an entire clan of bleu cheese lovers. One suggested writing a book titled "Death by Bleu Cheese" and to include this burger. That speaks volumes. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Event May '09
