Blue Cheese Burgers from Marcelle Beinvenu
Updated: Jan 4
This is an example of a burger called a Juicy Lucy. Originally in Minneapolis, someone put cheese in between two patties instead of on top of the patty. This burger takes the Juicy Lucy more upscale with the inclusion of Blue Cheese.
2 pounds lean Ground Beef
1/2 pound lean Ground Pork
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Chives
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
4 to 6 tablespoons crumbled Blue Cheese
4 to 6 Toasted Buns
Combine the beef, pork, chives, salt, pepper, soy sauce and olive oil in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Shape the mixture into patties. Then, make a pocket in the center of each patty and fill each with a tablespoon of blue cheese. Close the pocket by pinching the meat together. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes on each side; or until all pink disappears. Serve on toasted buns with whatever condiments strike your fancy.
