Bleu Cheese Stuffed Burgers

I rarely eat beef, let alone burgers.  But when I do cook a burger, I want it to be packed full of flavor.  Actually, I should correct myself, my husband was the one actually standing by the grill cooking the burgers.  Now that we have access to a grill, he was really itching to do some grilling, haha.  I just created the concept for dinner, did all the prep work, sauteed the zucchini/summer squash that we ate the burgers with, and the plating.  Figuring out how to stuff a burger with cheese took a little bit of finagling at first, but I figured it out.  It turns out the easiest way to to stuff burgers that I found is to make two super thin patties and sandwich them together with the stuffing in between.  It worked great!

Photography note – we cooked these after it was dark, so I had no natural light available.  Taking photos in artificial light is very hard to do!  I suggest keeping your food as far away from direct light as possible, and trying to position yourself to minimize the shadows.  I am still not 100% pleased with this picture because everything still looks very “shiny”, but it was the best that I got.

I love blue cheese burgers!! They are my favorite! Next time, instead of bbq sauce try out A1 (if you like it), it really balances well and adds a great depth to it…at least I think it does!

I’ve never had stuffed burgers before, though I’ve been told about them. I love blue cheese with anything, so I don’t need much convincing to try this out! Though if I did, that mouth-watering picture would do it. :-)

Oh yum! I’m now dying for some burgers. This looks scrumptious and great photos as well.

“print recipe” option is not working ;/. The blank page appears.

Hi Piotrek – thanks for letting me know, I’m looking into it – actually I’m working on converting my recipes to a new system that works a lot better – I’ll put this one on my priority list to make it printable for you!
