  • Yield: 4 servings

Mixed-up burgers like these can also be broiled or pan-fried. In place of ketchup, try horseradish-spiked mayonnaise. If you opt out of using the egg, take care while flipping as they’ll be a bit delicate.


1pound ground beef
5ounces bacon (about 4 strips), chopped and fried until crisp
3ounces aged blue cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes and chilled
1 egg (optional)
1/4teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Break up ground beef into mixing bowl. Add egg, if using, and mix thoroughly. Gently add in bacon, blue cheese until combined.
  2. Shape into four 4-inch wide and 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  3. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to high heat. Season both sides with salt and grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
