  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes; drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Crumble the bacon once cooled enough to handle.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Add the crumbled bacon, light mayonnaise, blue cheese, and black pepper to the onion and garlic; stir to combine.

Wow! Great way to perk up a regular 'ol burger! My husband is a huge fan of bacon and I adore blue cheese so this combination for a burger topper was a must try and it definitely didn't disappoint. Very easy to do and perfect over grilled burgers and I'm sure would be just as good on grilled chicken sandwiches too. I can't wait to try it as a dip for crackers and veggies! Thanks for a great recipe Christina!

This was okay. I think that next time I will try adding a little diced sun-dried tomatoes though. Also, if you have left-overs make sure that you take it out of the fridge well in advance of serving... I didn't do this and figured that I'd microwave it for 20 seconds in order to "soften it up" enough to spread. Essentially, that ruined it. If I do this again, I'll make sure that I don't have left-overs. :)

Most definitely a 5+ star. The first time I made this I did so 3 different ways. We had company and I'm the only one who eats Bleu Cheese. I made 1 full batch with Bleu Cheese, I made another full batch with Feta cheese and the third batch (recipe scaled down to 1 serving) with shredded Cheddar cheese. Everyone loved their hamburgers with this topping. What to do with the leftover Bleu Cheese topping? Later in the week I spread the leftover Bleu Cheese mixture on the leftover hamburger buns and popped them under the broiler. It melted up so nicely and got a golden brown color. My BC hating husband thought the bread was delicious. I didn't tell him what he was eating! This recipe is so delicious Christina, I've given the recipe out a few times. It will be made again and again and again in this house. Thanks for sharing.

Yummo! I didn't have any blue cheese on hand but I did have feta and it turned out great! Thanks for the recipe :-)

This was pretty good but I had a hard time getting past the not so appetizing grey-ish appearance. I probably won't make this again since to me it was just so so. My husband liked it and gave it four stars. Nothing wrong with the recipe just not for me.

It's easier to cut/dice the bacon before cooking. Then cook bacon in a saucepan, drain well. - When making anything with blue cheese the result is always better when you buy a good blue cheese. Lately I've ran across a few blue cheese's I was disappointed in on taste.

I didn't exactly follow this recipe, but used it as a baseline. I didn't measure anything, just mixed mayo, blue cheese, bacon, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and liquid smoke to taste.

This was soooo good & quick to throw together. I just nuked my bacon. It'll def be a repeat! Thanks Christina!
