I think the burger would hold together well if the patties are chilled per the recipe and then allowed to dark crust on the grill (don’t move it) before flipping.
This recipe is so good every time I make it turns out perfect
This just completely falls apart. Don’t use this recipe unless you want to lose your burgers in the grill and then have to start over from scratch.
Hi Zack, chilling the patties first will help them hold together. Also make sure your cheese is well crumbled, not big chunks.
And add another egg to help stick together
Mix as 50/50 burger. Half sausage and half 80/20. Added shallots to the mix. Very tasty
I don’t know what I did wrong but my patties fell apart faster than my husband’s plans for sex. But so delicious.
We make these burgers using this recipe all the time during the summer and they are a regular hit with all of our guests. This is a great recipe!
Just made these as the Blue part of a Red White and Blue dinner. Very tasty.
Just wanted to report that I used lean hamburger because all I had was elk burger, and the burgers were still fabulous. Thank you!
Had a pound of organic, grass-fed ground beef, but no plan as to what to do with it for dinner tonight! I decided to check your website for some last-minute inspiration, and low-and-behold, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe! We served them on these super thin whole grain buns (EarthGrain brand if anyone wants to try them), and they turned out oh-so yummy! My husband and I have a definite new favorite that no doubt will become a regular. I can always depend on your recipes to be of “good taste” (pun intended, lol). Thanks for another good one!!
No water, and the egg is a little much but the taste is BAM. Thank you.
I made these last night (with regular ground beef) and with all the toppings, my husband commented that he didn’t think he’d be able to find a better burger at one of our favorite burger joints. It was delicious.
My family loved this, it turned out great,thanks for the recipe,Tash
We made these burgers yesterday and they turned out awesome! We used regular ground beef (71%)and the cheese stayed intact very well. We decided to pan fry on medium heat and take our time. The burgers came out juicy and delicious!
I’ve been making a variation of these for a while… definitely a crowd pleaser. Try raspberry chipotle sauce as a condiment instead of mustard/ketchup.
I make burgers with blue cheese sometimes as well, but I prefer to add some oatmeal flakes, red wine and crumbled cooked bacon on the meat before doing the patties.
Instead of onion and garlic, I use shallots.
So far they have been a hit every time.
These are wonderful! We have made them several times and just love them. Thanks for a great recipe!
These burgers are a favorite in our house, my kids love them. I saute baby portabella mushrooms then chop them fine and add that to the ground meat along with Maytag Blue cheese. I know what we’re having for dinner tonight!
Love your web site.I’m making the curried rice salad right now to bring to a lunch tomorrow. It smells wonderful!
Thanks for the great ideas.
I made these and they were delicious! We actually served them with your Spinach and Orzo Salad Recipe. They were great together.
I tried to follow the recipe as well as I could, but I did have trouble keeping the burgers together. I used 85% lean grass-fed beef which maybe wasn’t fatty enough, but our local butcher didn’t have anything else. The meat was also really cold from the fridge — maybe we should have let it sit out for a while? Or maybe I mixed it too much? I dunno, they just didn’t quite have the consistency I expected. Regardless, they were really good and I will have to try and make them again.
I tried this a couple years ago with cheddar, and I guess I didn’t make the chunks small enough, because the burgers fell apart. I may have to try this again.
Adding an egg to the mixture really helps preventing the burger from falling apart. ~Elise
Yesterday was my birthday and I gave this recipe to my husband and three teens. They made these burgers for dinner and they were fantastic!
