This summer has been quite amazing so far! We’ve had a lot of cookouts, and a lot of time spent with family and friends. Although back to school is coming, and coming fast, it may feel like summer is coming to an end. In reality, we still have quite a bit of summer left! So lets not waste it! Fire up that grill! I’ve got something amazing for you!
I recently had my dad visiting from South Carolina. Although some would say my dad is a very picky eater, I wouldn’t classify him as picky. I would put him in the “simple” category. He’s a very simple person when it comes to food. He’s all about easy, traditional, and a meat & potatoes kinda guy. So for me, that’s super easy to cook for. I know the man pretty darn well, and I know that there are three things he loves a lot! That’s burgers, blue cheese, and bacon. So I created this Amazing Blue Cheese & Bacon Burger for him, which I slightly adapted from a Kraft. Before I get into the recipe, I just want to let you know that although I mention McCormick Grill Mates specifically, this is in no way a compensated post. I just really like the stuff.
Burgers, in my opinion, are always simple. Especially since I don’t run the grill. If you have yourself a personal grill master, all you have to do is mix it all up, smash some patties together and present them to the grill master! Your work is done! I happen to absolutely love my grill master. 😉
So take all of the ingredients listed, except for the bun of course, and mix it all up. I use my hands for this. Clean hands of course! Sometimes, you just gotta get down and dirty to get all those ingredients mixed up completely. It works really well. I do the same thing when I make meatloaf.
When it comes to the bacon bits, please don’t use that dried up nasty crunchy stuff like Bacos. I am using Real Bacon Bits which are located with all of the other salad toppings, usually in a plastic resealable bag. It makes a world of difference. You can also fry up some bacon and crumble it. The real bacon bits just save me that step and make it more convenient.
Feel free to top your burgers with your favorite toppings. We had lettuce and tomato for ours, but you could add pickles, and onion and all sorts of things. The sky’s the limit! Whatever you like!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this juicy burger! I kept this very simple by serving it with some potato salad. But you could do a pasta salad, or perhaps from potato wedges or fries. What do you like to serve your burgers with?
