Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers Wrapped in Bacon (FOOD PHOTO SHOOT)

in food •  last year

If it’s okay with you guys………..we’re havin’ burgers tonight!

I know today is already July 4th but I figured it's only the beginning of grilling season so these are on cue. So who’d like a towering, two-hands-required, cheese-stuffed burger served hot off the grill????

So, question; do you guys go through random food phases/ruts too?

I mean, you’d think with the fact that I cook and try new recipes basically everyday I’d switch up more often but my family still has their favorites that we gravitate towards and I still have my arsenal of easy go-tos for days when I’m not feeling very creative. There are just so many food possibilities and so many things I’m always wanting to try but having such a big fam works both ways.

What I mean is that, yes, there are more people to try new things than your average family and therefore I can usually count on at least one person to like my latest experiment, but there are also more palates to please so when I’m attempting to please them all at once my choices are a lot more limited. Does that make sense?

Grilling out always makes the whole gang happy though, and we’d do it more but the style of grilling for this size of family is a bigger ordeal than just heating up a small gas grill. But we decided to make the most of a recent sunny day and grill burgers because it's summer!

We didn’t grill out nearly as much as we wanted to during the Spring so everyone was acting as if they’d never had a burger before and totally loving them, which was really amusing to me for some reason. There’s nothing like watching the carnivore inside a teenage boy come alive.

Okay, and now that I’ve been rambling on and on I’m finally going to get to actually talking about this recipe. These monster awesome burgers will totally complete your mother’s, father’s, or just just plain old boring week day! Those of you who live up North have all kinds of summer holidays coming that you’re probably gonna need inspiration for so you have no excuse, you’ve gotta try these! They’re also so simple people, for reals. Here, let me break it down to prove my point;

DSC_0871.jpg

All you do is heat the grill then season and pat out the meat, stir up the filling and stuff the burgers, then wrap in bacon and let em have it with some heat, now gather your toppings and buns and put it all together like a pro and you’re DONE!
Ready, Set, Devour!!!!

BACON!? AGAIN!? What are you trying to do to me! ;)

·

Haha, so sorry for tempting you too much @movievertigo! Thanks for your funny reply.

Can I have the recipe? It looks delicious.

·

Of course @rockjon! I'd be happy to share!

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
16 slices uncooked bacon
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/3 cup cream cheese, softened enough to be spreadable but not warm
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 hamburger buns, split (gluten free if needed)
Onion, avocado, and/or tomato, thinly sliced
Lettuce leaves
favorite condiments: hot sauce, spicy mustard, bbq.....

Instructions

  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat (If you don't have one you can cook the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat or bake them on a foil lined baking tray at 350 degrees F (180 C).
  2. Mix the softened cream cheese and egg yolks in a small to medium bowl until combined. Stir in blue cheese, salt, and pepper until combined then set mixture aside for a moment.
  3. Mix together the beef and worchestershire in a medium mixing bowl then divide into 4 burgers. Flatten the patties out on a foil lined tray until about 3/4 inch thin. Spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of cheese mixture onto each patty then fold up the sides around the cheese mixture like you're wrapping a present and press it together to seal as well as you can. Now wrap each burger in 4 slices of bacon.
  4. Place the patties over heated grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. (If you think you may have trouble keeping the burgers together over the open grill they can be grilled on top of the foil as well) Toast hamburger buns during the last minute of grilling if desired.
  5. Serve hot with any of your desired toppings.

Dudelicious, what the hell! I keep getting so hungry every time I get on Steemit. That's a burger - very much so. Photos very much not bad either!

Blue cheese on (or stuffed into) burgers is my weakness... I crave them... I have an obsession... they are to die for!

Now that is proper nourishment!

·

You got that right!! Maybe a tad of a stretch on the 'proper' but I get what you mean and could not agree more! Thanks for taking the time away from the pool to comment @brianphobos!!

Oh my yes, The knife down the middle tells it all! I don't have a grill right now but love the flavor of grilled burgers. Love blue cheese! Great pics. Great burger. Enjoyed. :)
