Today she's sharing her recipe for Blue Cheese Bacon Burgers just in time for Summer!


"I know that blue cheese may not be everyone’s favorite cheese, but it is one that brings the flavor. This is especially true when it is added alongside bacon. These blue cheese bacon burgers are the perfect burger to enjoy with a side of homemade french fries." - Clair Cook from The Southerly Magnolia


3.5-4 lbs ground beef, (80/20) or (90/10)
1 egg
1/2 cup of cooked bacon pieces
1/2 cup-1 cup blue cheese crumbles
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Garnish: 1 purple onion, buffalo mayonnaise (1/4 cup of mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons of buffalo sauce)
Crustini buns


  1. Place the hamburger meat into a large mixing bowl; add the egg and mix well
  2. Add salt and pepper, and mix up
  3. Add the bacon pieces, mix in. Then add the crumbled blue cheese.
  4. Gently mix up; form the burgers into large balls
  5. Place the burger balls onto a heated grill or griddle; cook on one side for 2-3 minutes, then flip
  6. Press down the balls; cook for 7 minutes; then flip over again and cook for another 4 minutes
  7. Remove the hamburgers from the grill
  8. Mix up the buffalo mayonnaise and slice up the purple onion
  9. Toast the crustini buns if you want; then add the buffalo mayonnaise and purple onion. You can add one blue cheese bacon burger patty or two. Up to you!
  10. Enjoy!
