blue cheese burgers

Want to throw a twist into your regular burgers? Try these blue cheese stuffed burgers! They are easy to make and are freezer friendly. We had them for lunch today with steamed broccoli and pasta and the whole meal took less than 15 minutes to have ready... talk about convenient! Ryan's vote was that they were a little too blue cheesy, and my vote was yummmmmy! (It just depends on your personal preference for blue cheese :) ) I would even suggest for next time stuffing with a piece of swiss cheese, a few blue cheese crumbles, and spices to mix it up.

what you'll need:
  • 1 pound ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 2+ oz. crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
 how you'll do it:
in a small bowl, combine cream cheese and blue cheese
add in the onion powder and parsley
season with salt and pepper
divide ground beef into 8 equal pieces
(I divided into 4 parts, and then halved those)
flatten out the halves and spread the cheese mixture in middle of one
top with the other half and squeeze edges to seal
cook on grill until done

be careful when you are ready to eat them, the center will be extra hot and gooey
(you may want to cut your burger first)

makes 4 burgers

Freezer directions: Place on cookie sheet and flash freeze. Place in gallon freezer bag, label, seal, and freeze. To serve: Thaw. Cook on grill until done.
