Ingredients

For the whipped blue cheese:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 ounces Castello traditional Danish Blue cheese crumbled

For the burgers:

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil for the grill
  • 1 lb. 85% lean grass-fed beef
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of thick cut bacon cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 large tomatoes sliced
  • 4 leaves romaine or ice berg lettuce
  • 4 homemade hamburger buns or store bought

Instructions 

Prepare the whipped blue cheese:

  • Place the softened cream cheese and blue cheese in a small bowl and beat at medium speed until combined and nicely whipped. Set aside.

Prepare the burgers:

  • Preheat the grill to medium and oil the grates.
  • While the grill heats, place the ground beef, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Using your hands, gently work the garlic and Worcestershire into the meat, careful not to overwork it as it will get tough. Divide into 4 patties about 1/4" larger than the buns you're using, and make an indent in the center with your thumb to keep shrinking to a minimum. Sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper, then grill for about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from heat, and cover with loosely with foil.
  • Turn the heat off of the grill and place the buns face down on the grill until warm and slightly toasty.

Assemble the burgers:

  • Place lettuce and tomatoes on the bottom bun, then top with a burger. Top the burger with a slice of bacon, and spread the whipped blue cheese on the top bun. Place the top bun over the burger, then serve immediately and enjoy!
