Tips and Tricks

Choosing the Right Beef

For the best results, use lean ground beef. It holds together well and provides a good balance of flavor without being too greasy. Look for ground beef with a lean-to-fat ratio of about 85/15.

Mixing Ingredients Evenly

To ensure that the blue cheese and seasonings are evenly distributed, use your hands to mix the ingredients gently. Overmixing can make the burgers tough, so mix just until everything is combined.

Forming Perfect Patties

Make the patties slightly larger than the buns since they will shrink as they cook. Press a small indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb. This helps the patties cook evenly and prevents them from puffing up in the middle.

Keeping Patties Cold

After forming the patties, place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before grilling. This helps them hold their shape better during cooking.

Grilling to Perfection

Preheat the grill to high heat and oil the grates to prevent sticking. Cook the patties for about 5 minutes on each side for a well-done burger. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 160°F for safety.

Toasting the Buns

For an extra touch, lightly toast the hamburger rolls on the grill. This adds a nice crunch and helps the buns hold up better to the juicy burgers.
