Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Give your burgers a fun makeover by stuffing them with sharp, creamy blue cheese. These Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers are juicy perfection.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers

It was a steamy, hot day today. It was one of those days where you just don’t know what to do with yourself. The kids and I ran errands, took a walk (what was I thinking?!?) and ran through the sprinkler. Because I wanted to. Finally, we gave in and collapsed onto the couch with the air conditioner on (remember how I was boycotting the a/c this year? I still am … but we did install one unit in an unused window).

When it came to dinnertime, I didn’t want to cook. Who would? But that’s exactly why I plan our meals for the week. When the plan is laid out for you, it makes it way easier to just give in and go for it … so I did. And really, when I realized what I had planned for tonight, I couldn’t say no.

That delicious burger above was worth every bit of heat and torment to create it. It’s just that good.

Inside this juicy burger is an oozing center of juicy, savory deliciousness. You bite into it and it spills warm juices down your chin, leaving you to lap them up wipe it away with your napkin. I first made these about two weeks ago and feel instantly in love. Since then, we’ve had them several times … they are rather addicting.

I have to give the credit for this one to Shawn, who wanted “something, some cheese to stuff the burgers with,” one day when I was heading to the store.

Coincidentally, the hamburger is a total New England food. The hamburger – a ground beef patty stuck between two slices of bread- was created right here in a little restaurant in Connecticut. The first burger was created by Louis Lassen, who ran a small lunch cart in New Haven that he called (so creatively) Louis’ Lunch.

Today, Louis’ is still run by the Lassen family and is now located in a small building on Crown Street. It’s a favorite for Michael and Jane Stern, who have written about it on their website Roadfood as well as naming it one of their picks for “20 Burgers to Eat Before It’s Too Late,” in the June issue of Gourmet. I daresay, I will be trying that little hamburger joint quite soon …

Back to my delectable burger, it’s worth every single second and bite. Try it.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 oz blue cheese, cut into four 1/2 oz slices

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into four equal-sized balls (they should be 4 oz each). One at a time flatten the ball to 1/4 inch thickness. Place one 1/2 oz slice of blue cheese in the center and fold the ground beef in around it, like a package. Seal the edges, shape into a patty and press your thumb into the center. Repeat for the remaining three patties.
  2. Cook the burgers on a hot grill, flipping once, to desired doneness.
  3. Serve immediately on a soft bun.

[...] Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers – This is another dish that made a frequent appearance on our table over the summer. When you bite into one of these babies, you get tender, flavorful meat and some of the creamy, melted blue cheese (which admittedly sometimes also dribbles down your chin). Just amazing. [...]

Mmm, love a good cheese-stuffed burger, particularly one with bleu cheese. Sounds like a perfect way to end the day ... particularly the hot and steamy kind. I happen to have ground beef defrosting in the freezer ... hmmm.
