SERVINGS: 4 burgers



  • 1 pound ground beef (16-20%)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Gently mix ground beef with the other ingredients:

Put ground beef, mustard, garlic, onions, blue cheese, water, egg, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper into a large bowl. Use your hands to gently mix the ingredients together until just incorporated. Do not over-mix.


Shape into patties and chill:
Shape into patties, about 1/2 inch thick and larger than your bun. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to cook.

Prepare grill for cooking over high direct heat:
Using tongs and a folded up paper towel dipped in vegetable oil, oil the grill grates. Make sure grill is hot and well oiled before laying down the patties.

Season and grill the burgers:
Season patties with salt and pepper. Place the patties on the clean, well-oiled grill grate. Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes per side. Do not press down on the burgers while cooking.
