PARTNER POST – Get inspired with creatively crafted Castello Blue Cheese as we celebrate a Summer of Blue with #BluesdayTuesday.
Make a customer burger this summer, filled with gooey, rich cheese punctuating every bite. Watch your eaters devour the spicy patties cooled down by the creamy blue cheese.
By Keith Jackie
Summertime is burger time, and our grill is in full swing!! With Fathers day right around the corner, we cooked up a special treat for dad: a spicy mouth-watering burger stuffed with rich and creamy blue brie cheese. Dads everywhere love a burger prepared on the grill, but at Superman Cooks, a plain old burger just won’t cut it. Our friends at Castello sent us some delectable Saga Blue Brie, and we thought its rich taste and texture would be perfect stuffed inside this special burger. We combined ground chuck with spices and fire-roasted Serrano peppers, and (as if that wasn’t enough) we served it on a warm homemade pretzel roll.
This burger is custom-made for Dad. Serve it up warm, with the gooey rich cheese punctuating every bite. Then watch him devour it and head for the recliner to settle in for a nap. As a dad, this is what I think father’s day is all about. The creaminess of the blue brie cheese helps to cool the subtle heat of the pepper. This burger is packed with juicy flavor!
Now you can make potato salad, grilled corn, or many different side dishes to accompany our burger. Just make sure you make two burgers for good ol’ Dad. We recommend a side of our Hillbilly Potato Salad. Seriously, this recipe specially created to make sure Dad is happy on his special day. While Jackie and I prepared this meal, we kept snacking on the homemade pretzel buns as they were still warm from the oven. We even spread some of the Costello Blue Brie cheese on the warm pretzel rolls and OMG,what an amazing snack in itself! We are confident that dads everywhere will be happy with this special burger on this special day.
