This is an EXCELLENT burger recipe and one of the most flavorful that I've had. I was a little hesitant thinking that it'd be too spicy and the blue cheese overpowering, but with the positive reviews, I had to try it and am glad I did. It had just enough zing for the taste buds and the perfect amount/blend of seasonings.
I was really looking forward to these, but was disappointed. I cut the jalapenos back to 4 peppers and it was still way too hot for our tastes.
I think it might be better if you boiled or sauteed the jalapenos first. That may mellow the heat and make them softer. As is, the jalapeno "crunch" in the burgers just didn't taste right.
These fell apart on us...not sure why. Hubby couldn't get them to stick together after mixing in the soy sauce so he added some egg to bind them together. I think the egg "helped" them stick to the grill. I did use really lean meat..maybe that was the culprit although hubby swears it was thawing the meat in the microwave ( he says it makes the meat watery which inhibits it from holding together). Flavorwise, these were all right...the jalapeno didn't add as much as I had anticipated though. For us, this was, at best, 3 stars but I am giving four since I know somehow it has to be hubby's fault.
This is by far the best darn burger yet! We have always made the blue cheese burgers found on this site, but this recipe is far better! Wouldn't change a thing and we'll continue to make these every week!
I made this for a dinner group, and since then a couple people have asked me for the recipe. I thought it called for too many jalepenos, so I didn't use them all, but I wish I had. The combination of bleu cheese and jalepenos is excellent. The portions of this recipe are generous.
These are wonderful!!! I used feta instead of blue cheese due to family choice. I did add one egg and had no issues. Yummy!!
Just love this recipe, new favorite !!!
Used gorgonzola cheese, even tried it
with ground turkey for a healthier twist. Thanks for a great recipe.
This recipe was out of this world!!! Absolutely delightful and different! Kudos and I encourage everyone to make this recipe!
