Big Blue Burgers
Serving Size / Yield
- 1 1/2 lb. ground chuck
- 1 1/2 lb. ground sirloin
- 1/2 C. seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 C. steak sauce
- 3 eggs
- kosher salt
- black pepper
- 8 pretzel buns
- 8 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
Carefully mix the meats, bread crumbs, steak sauce, eggs, salt, and pepper with your hands, don't overmix. Lightly form hamburger patties and press lightly into shape, creating a small indentation in the middle so there's room for them to plump.
Prepare your indoor or outdoor grill.
Cook the hamburgers for 4 minutes on 1 side, then turn and cook 3 minutes on the other side for medium-rare, add about 30 seconds per side for each subsequent level of doneness.
Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the buns, cut side down, for 1 minute, until toasted. Place a hamburger and blue cheese in each bun, and serve hot.
