Bleu Cheese Burger Recipe


Decadent Bleu Cheese Burger recipe courtesy of AvinoDos Wines via The California Wine Club.

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 35 Minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1/4 lb ground bacon
  • 3/4 lb ground brisket or lean beef
  • olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 8 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 c button mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 oz Point Reyes original bleu cheese
  • 4 English muffins


  1. Roughly mix ground bacon and brisket and, using a scale, break into four 4-oz balls; line a circular lid with plastic wrap and press patties out (you can do this by hand however the patties will not be as uniform).
  1. Over low-medium heat, add olive oil to skillet and bring up to temp (check by flicking water into pan - if it sizzles it's ready). Add onions and garlic, stirring occasionally until onions are translucent and garlic is aromatic; add mushrooms and cook for about 20 minutes, until mixture is caramelized.
  1. In a separate pan heated to medium, add patties and sear both sides; add bleu cheese to tops and warm until slightly melted.
  1. Put English muffins in toaster oven for 5-6 minutes until warm and crispy. Assemble burgers with desired toppings and serve immediately.

Wines to Pair: This burger will pair nicely with AvinoDos Wines Oak Knoll District Napa Valley Malbec.
