Amazing Blue Cheese & Bacon Burgers

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?

Instructions
  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix ground beef, blue cheese, real bacon bits, steak sauce and hamburger seasoning. I use my hands (clean of course) to mix it all up. It works so much better than a spoon and really gets it all incorporated into the meat.
  3. Divide meat into equal portions and shape into 8 patties (for hamburgers) or 12 patties (for sliders).
  4. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Place buns, cut side down, on grill for the last 2 minutes to toast the buns.
  5. Fill buns with burgers, and desired toppings.
  6. Enjoy!
  7. Serves: 8 hamburgers or 12 sliders

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken

As soon as the weather just hints at warmer days to come, I start craving that warm weather food! You know, like grilled burgers, cold salads, corn on the cob!!! OMG Corn on the cob! One of my favorite things to eat during the warmer seasons. I saw a pile of it at the grocery store on my last trip, and took a peek at them, and they were beautiful! Can’t believe I only bought 3! I knew I was only really feeding it to myself and kids, but it was perfect corn! I’m hoping they have some more when I go back this week. Oh, and yea, just myself and my kids on the corn. If I haven’t mentioned this before, my husband is to corn like a vampire is to garlic. Not kidding. He hates the stuff. Not even corn bread! He won’t touch it. I could complain, but honestly, more for me!! HA!

Another one of my favorite foods during the warmer months are shredded (or pulled) meat sandwiches, put on a hamburger bun or Kaiser roll, dripping with delicious sauce, and topped with yummy coleslaw (or like my kids, put the coleslaw on the side). I normally decide on the main dish and THEN figure out the side dish, but since I saw this corn, it came first and I needed a main dish. I wanted something that was really going to wow my taste buds, and make my kids cheer my name. I have thousands of recipes in my files, but seriously, nothing jumped out at me 😂 so I hopped on over to Lemon Tree Dwelling, one of my favorite food blogs. If you haven’t checked it out, you should! Cathy over there, really knows how to wow your taste buds! I took one look at her Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken and already knew it was perfect! So that’s what I’m sharing with you today, is her perfect, delicious, out of this world, Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken. You can’t go wrong with this one folks. It’s so easy, and one bite, you’ll think you’re in heaven! Here’s my insanely bad picture, (😂 I’m trying to get better! I swear!) and her wonderful recipe. Make this!! Take it to a potluck, or just serve it to your family because it’s pure love! You won’t regret it!
