Blue Cheese Breakfast Burger Castello

Have I mentioned before that I’m a “meat & potatoes” kind of girl? I will rarely turn down a good burger. One of my ALL TIME favorite ways to eat a burger is with blue cheese. In fact – it’s also my favorite topping for steak. Can’t get enough!

I absolutely LOVE blue cheese & yet it’s so hard to try to melt the crumbles on my burger. So I was SUPER EXCITED to see that Castello now offers a Burger Blue blue cheese. It’s made just for people like me that really love a good blue cheese. At first I thought I might share with you one of my favorite ways to enjoy my blue cheese burger – you know, with some beer battered onion rings & bbq sauce. But then I had an even better idea & I’m swooning.

I’m practically giddy to share this Blue Cheese Breakfast Burger with you! It’s been all I could do to not let the cat out of the bag because it was INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS. The last time I was back home in So Cal we visited this place a couple times for dinner. Each time my brother chose this burger with a over easy egg on it. It was gooey & messy & all things that make for a great burger. So I decided to take that up a few more notches & add all my other favorite breakfast foods on there too.

Recipe Type: Main
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • Worcester sauce, salt, pepper, season salt, granulated garlic to taste
  • Castello Burger Blue Cheese slices
  • 1 egg (per burger)
  • 2-3 pieces of bacon (per burger)
  • 1 hash brown (per burger)
  • Your choice of burger buns
Instructions
  1. Preheat your grill
  2. Prepare your patties while your grill is heating by forming into patty shape (do not season yet)
  3. Place raw patties on baking sheet & brush with olive oil
  4. Once grill is ready - place patties on the grill to seer - flipping once to seer both sides
  5. Once seared, lower temperature, add desired seasonings & Worcester sauce & allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes flipping only one more time. (grass fed beef will cook a little faster than grain fed beef) Don't press down on them - or you will press all the juices out. You want to just let them cook without being disturbed, slow & steady.
  6. When you are getting close to your time insert a meat thermometer - if it reaches above 160 degrees (if not continue cooking a little longer) - add your cheese & allow to melt slightly before removing patties from the grill.
  7. **Have someone inside preparing the other ingredients (cooking the bacon, eggs & hash browns)
For the bacon
  1. Lay out on a foil lined baking sheet & cook in a 400 degree oven for approx 20-30 minutes depending on the thickness of your bacon & how you like it cooked
Eggs
  1. Cooked sunny side up, crack into a small skillet & cook over low until all the whites of the egg have firmed (about 5 minutes)- keeping in mind that the egg will continue to cook after you have removed it from the heat - do not flip
Hash Browns
  1. Preheat a couple tablespoons of peanut oil in large skillet
  2. Once the oil is hot- drop in your hash browns - cooking several minutes on each side until cooked through
  3. Remove & place on a wire rack to drain & crisp
  4. Once all your ingredients are prepared it's time to assemble this amazing burger
  5. Place several slices of blue cheese on your bottom burger bun (it will melt from the heat of your other ingredients)
  6. Add your hash brown, then your burger patty
  7. Top with bacon & finally your egg
