Blue Ribbon Burgers

"I found this recipe on the internet, made a few changes to suit my taste. Very good Burger. Add whatever condiments you want. I like slice raw sweet onion, tomato, lettuce, mustard and pickle on the side. Don't forget to get some good buns and toast one side"

  1. I made these last night and they were so good. I have made burgers with just blue cheese in the middle, but these were much better. I think the cream cheese makes the blue cheese a tad less strong, but still very good. I also added some garlic salt to the cheese mixture and will again next time I make them because it tasted really good with the blue cheese. I also topped the burgers with swiss cheese, red onion and mayo. Thanks for another great one!
  2. My family and friends love this burger! Great recipe, have request to make this burger a lot. Thanks for the great posting!
  3. Definitely worth waiting for Bergy! The blue cheese and cream cheese 'filling' made these not only a tasty burger but also a moist one. We'll be having these a lot over the Summer, thanks for posting.
  4. These are OK. We added chopped fresh basil and finely chopped mushrooms. The blue cheese didn't provide as much flavor as I had anticipated.
  5. When Bergy says it's a blue ribbon burger, it's a blue ribbon burger!!! These were really good. I added more garlic and may add even a little more next time. I served with onion, mayo, ketchup and more blue cheese on top. Thanks, Bergy.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
