Recipe Type: Main
 
The classic BLT hits a burger patty with a whipped blue cheese sauce to bring it all together. Take you BLT to a whole new level this summer.
Ingredients
For the whipped blue cheese:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used ⅓ less fat neufchâtel)
  • 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 heirloom tomatoes, sliced
  • Romaine or ice berg lettuce
  • 4 burger buns
Instructions
Prepare the whipped blue cheese:
  1. 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:
  1. Preheat the grill to medium and oil the grates.
  2. 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 ¼" 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, and grill for about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from heat, and cover loosely with foil.
  3. Turn the heat off of the grill and place the buns face down on the grill until warm and slightly toasty. Remove from heat.
Assemble the burgers:
  1. 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!
