I have a huge obsession with blue cheese hamburgers. I don’t remember what made me love them, but now I can’t get over it! If you plan to make one at home for your children or even for your guests, then I would say go for it; it’s the yummiest treat ever!
Everybody knows how to make hamburgers. So you might think, how difficult would it be to make a blue cheeseburger? All you need to do is put the cheese between two thin patties and then grill it, right?
Well, no, it’s not as simple as that. If it does not go your way, the burger will end up leaking all the cheese in the oven, which you do not want to happen. Secondly, remember the cheese can become hotter than the bread, so while you may think that your hamburger is just right, you may end up burning your tongue.
But don’t worry, I got you! In this article, I will tell you the right way to make blue cheese hamburgers and some nice recipe twists that will win your heart right away.
Hamburger Blue Cheese Recipe
For the preparation of patties-
- 1 pound ground beef

- Before putting the patties on the grill, scrub the leftovers or the residue from the grill. You can use different tools or towels as well. Now oil the grill so that the meat doesn’t stick to the grill.Now, the main thing you need to keep in mind is that different meat preferences require different temperatures and time to have a perfect grilled patty. Here are some suggestions:- Medium Rare – 130 to 135 degrees F, which one needs to cook for four minutes per side.- Medium well – In this requirement, one needs to cook for 5 minutes per side at a temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F.- Medium – At 140-145 degrees F for about 6 minutes per side.- Well done – you need to keep the temperature at 160 or more and about 7 minutes per side.Note: Do not press the patties with the help of a spatula, as it will release all the juiciness out of the patties, and eventually, it will become dry while you will eat.
- Toast the bun in that grill itself. You can take sesame seed buns or a normal bun, and there is no rule!
