Bacon, Basil, and Blue Cheese Burgers

Course: Beef
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1.5 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1.25 pounds ground beef
  • 8 thick slices bacon
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 1.5 cups torn frisée lettuce or 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 thin slices red onion

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the cheese, basil, mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • With dampened hands, shape the beef into 4 patties, about 4 1/2-inches in diameter and 3/4-inch thick. Set aside.
  • In a very large skillet or griddle over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp and golden, 8 to 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  • Prepare a grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Sprinkle both sides of the patties with the salt and pepper. Grill to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. During the last minute, place the buns on the grill, cut side down, to lightly toast.
  • Arrange the bacon on the bun bottoms. Top with the lettuce, onion, patties, cheese mixture, and bun tops and serve.
