Nothing beats a juicy burger – especially when it’s topped with blue cheese! These Blue Cheese Burgers are simple yet filled with flavor.



  • 1 pound ground chuck (80-85% lean)
  • 1/2 pound ground sirloin (90% lean)
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 oz crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 tablespoons blue cheese dressing
  • Lettuce, sliced tomatoes and sliced onions


  1. In a large bowl, carefully combine the meats, steak sauce, egg yolks, salt and pepper, being careful not to overwork the mixture. Form into 4 patties, slightly wider than the buns.
  2. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat, or heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook the patties for 4 minutes on one side, then flip over and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes (for medium doneness). When there is a minute left, add 1 tablespoon of blue cheese to the top of each patty. When done, remove to a plate and cover loosely with foil.
  4. Place the buns on the grill or in the skillet and cook until the cut sides are toasted.
  5. To assemble, spread 1 tablespoon of blue cheese dressing on the bottom bun halves, then place the patty on top. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and the top bun and serve.
