"Hamburgers? Yes. But basic fare? Definitely not! What a treat they are, and the wise cook will make up a dozen or so for the freezer. If you like blue cheese, you'll never forget these burgers." — QUIKSMYLE

These were really great!! I did do a few changes though...first was the addition of bacon. I fried and crumbled a pound of bacon and added it to the mixture. I also added an additional tsp of Worcestershire sauce and when they were all done, melted some additional blue cheese crumbles on top. My family (including 2 really picky son-in-laws and one realll picky daughter)all LOVED them. They are definitaly going to be on the menu again and again here. I also recommend you use an 80/20 ground beef. You do need some fat in these for flavor. Try them....if you like the tang of blue cheese, you will love these and if you aren't worried about the calories...go for the bacon addition!
We were not at all impressed by these burgers. We did them for father's day and expected something more. If you love blue cheese, keep looking.
Very good. I wanted to try this exactly by the recipe to fairly evaluate as written but I must admit I added a little bit of minced garlic and used more bleu cheese because I love the taste of it. I was very pleased with this recipe.
Great burgers. Made this for a Father's Day dinner for my husband and his best friend. They each had two. Raves from everyone. I was expecting a very different taste. Excellent recipe. Will make again and again. Served with corn on the cob with a herbed butter and a grilled potato and green onion salad served on top of mixed greens with a blue cheese vinigarette. Did increase the blue cheese to four ounces for six burgers; also increased the sauces.
Great recipe. Tasted even better then it sounded. I would suggest changing the hot sauce to the new Tosbasco Chipotle sauce. It is amazing. Also next time I will try blending the gound beef half and half with ground pork! P.S. use less salt as the cheese is generally salty on its own.
I do not like blue cheese even a little, however, these are FANTASTIC! No more boring burgers in this house again! The flavor is just perfect, I didn't like the smell of the blue cheese while I mixed it in, and did it quick so nobody would see, and everybody loved them except my daughter,she LIKED these the best of all beef burgers, she normally eats veggie burgers only!
Super good! I added more blue cheese and only used about 2 lbs of beef. Very moist and the blue cheese/chives really stood out. (I thought the flavors would get lost inside the burgers.) These will be a standard... I've made them twice already. Try them!
Excellent burgers! I saw something like this on Food Network and had forgotten about it. A must is the sauteed onion and mushrooms... Next time I'm going to try this with ground turkey and feta, the possibilities are endless!
