Recipe by Hey Jude
READY IN: 39mins




  • Wipe the grate of your grill or your skillet with olive oil before heating over a medium-high flame.
  • Cook the bacon in a dry skillet over medium heat; when done to your like, place on paper towels to drain and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, pepper, thyme and sage; mix well using your hands and form into 8 thin patties; form small craters in the center of half of the patties, leaving an edge of about a quarter inch all the way around and place a scant 2 tablespoons of blue cheese in the center; top each with another patty, pinching the seams together, making sure the stuffing is completely covered.
  • Cook the burgers over medium-high heat until medium-rare; 4 minutes per side on the grill and 4 1/2 minutes per side in a skillet; be gentle when turning the patties so they don't split.
  • Thinly slice the apple and top each burger with the slices just before removing from the heat.
  • Serve the burgers topped with bacon on the toasted roll.
