Curt's Grilled Black and Blue Bacon Angus Burger Recipe

Monday, April 23, 2012
Another bragging post of course... A proud mom seeing her youngest son excel in the world of cooking adding many new ideas. Curt is one of those kids (oops men) that loves food. There are no boundaries when taking good quality ingredients and taking it to the next level.

He took over the grill with his determination to make mom not only proud but prove he had the better combination of flavors in making a mouth watering burger. I was not surprised to take one bite and fail my 8 months of dieting with no meat to succumb to eating the whole burger... Blue cheese, bacon crumbles and Angus Beef? Really too tempting to resist! My will power just went out the window! What a great way to celebrate my birthday and weight loss... I have no regrets! You only live once right? I am so happy to have two sons that love to cook.. Chad is more the dessert maker in the family and breakfast lover and Curt loves to create his own dishes based on what he loves....

Use an age Danish Blue Cheese he said, at least aged 60 days. He said you don't need much. A little on each burger will go a long way, it's a very strong tasting cheese.

I love blue cheese so there is no such thing as too much for me!

Here's what you will need to make this burger:

Worcestershire Sauce

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

garlic powder

6 to 8 Angus burger patties or sirloin burgers

Cooked and crumbled maple flavored bacon or use your favorite kind

Danish blue cheese aged at least 60 days buy a good grade cheese


Buns of your choice lightly buttered and toasted on the grill

Garnish suggestions: mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, sauteed peppers , mushrooms, fresh sliced tomatoes, avocado, lettuce leaves, minced garlic, pickles or whatever your heart desires on a burger

Sprinkle each burger with Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Heat the grill on high for around 10 minutes and set to low.

Set seasoned burgers on the grill.

Grill on low for around 10 minutes. ( Depending on how you like your burger, less time for medium rare or rare). Flip and continue to cook another 10 minutes and baste with a few more drops of Worcestershire sauce to your desired doneness. Toast buns on the grill at this point. Top each burger with some crumbled Danish blue cheese and crumbled crispy bacon. Close the lid for around 2 minutes allowing for the cheese to melt for creaminess.

Place the cooked burger on a buttery toasted bun. Garnish with toppings and condiments of choice, enjoy.
