Whooooa, horsie! This stopped us dead in our tracks with shocking glee! I mean, we both love bleu cheese, but the combination of it and the remaining ingredients sent this puppy WAY over the top of heaven. I used ground tri tip, forming 2 patties for each burger and layering the bleu cheese in between them, sealing the edges. There was a great deal of fat (butter/oil) in the sauce at the end, so I suctioned off most of that. I'm thinking the ground beef had more fat than I realized, but it was "FoodSavered" and frozen it, so I didn't have access to the fat content sticker. I'll be more mindful of that next time because this was awesome and we want it again! Sauce was great with mashed potatoes, too. Thank you, Christmas Carol!

After a recent mushroom hunting expedition in the mountains of central France (our new home) I went looking for a recipe to use our wild mushrooms in. I found this one and it was easy and soooo delicious...even with my European measuring system and oven.

Fantastic taste! Halved recipe and added some milk with flour to the gravy at the end of cooking. Also used ketchup instead of tomato paste/salt -- just because it was easier. Used Feta instead of bleu cheese. Family ate it up! Thanks!

Delicious! Normally anything that says ‘dredge’ I usually pass over. I am so glad I gave this a chance. I had no idea what to do with the ground steak I had in the fridge and found your recipe. I used feta cheese instead of blue cheese and fresh mushrooms. The ‘surprise’ was a nice change. I halved this recipe using 1 lb. of ground steak and it made 4 medium patties. I will make this again, but next time I might try adding about ½ cup of cream to the sauce just to give it a smoother texture. EDIT: We had this again for dinner last night and I made it the same way as last time only I added 1/4 cup of single cream to the sauce which really enhanced the texture. It was superb! Thank you so much for this Christmas Carol. This recipe is secured as a family favorite!
