Ingredients for Gourmet Blue Burger:

Blue Cheese Sauce

  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola (2 1/2 oz) or another blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, grated (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 large cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • Good quality burger buns (toasted if preferred)
  • Optional toppings such as sautéed onions, baby arugula, or other traditional garnishes (as preferred).



Blue Cheese Sauce:

  • Combine blue cheese with sour cream, milk, vinegar and garlic (if using); season with salt and pepper (to taste). Set aside.


  • Preheat grill or a cast iron skillet to medium.
  • Stir egg yolk with garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, rosemary, salt and pepper until well combined. Crumble in beef and mix gently by hand until uniformly combined. Form beef into 4 patties (about 3 1/2-inch in diameter), pressing a thumb-sized indent in centers to help patties keep shape during cooking.
  • Cook patties, on grill or in skillet, for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through (or until an instant-read thermometer inserted through side of patty registers 71°C/160°F). Serve on buns topped with blue cheese sauce and other toppings as preferred.

Recipe Tip:

For sautéed onions, cook sliced onions in butter or olive oil until golden. (Add a little water as needed to help onions soften without scorching.) Season with salt, pepper and a splash of Worcestershire (to taste).
