Bacon Blue Cheese Burger with Balsamic Mayo
This juicy Bacon Blue Cheese Burger with Balsamic Mayo features the briny flavor of crumbled blue cheese, crisp bacon, and the sharp tang of balsamic vinegar!
Servings: 1 burger
- 1 pretzel bun sliced
- ⅓ pound 80/20 hamburger flatted and shaped into a patty
- 1 slice of bacon cut in half
- 2 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
- 1 leaf green leaf lettuce
- 1 slice Red Onion thinly sliced
Balsamic Mayo (enough for 4 burgers)
- ¼ cup Mayo
- ¾ tsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 4 grinds of fresh ground pepper or to taste
Cook bacon till crispy and set aside.
Place hamburger patty in hot skillet and cook on medium high until the top of the patty starts deepening in color, then flip.
Add crumbled blue cheese to patty and top with slices of bacon and cook the patty to the desired doneness. Cooking time will vary depending on patty thickness and skillet temperature.
While patty is cooking, butter the inside of the buns and lightly toast them face down in a separate skillet.
To assemble, place green leaf lettuce on bottom bun, topped with onion, then burger patty, blue cheese, and bacon. Add ~1 tbsp balsamic mayo to the top bun and cover!
Do NOT press the patty as it is cooking. This will squeeze out the delicious juices that prevent the patty from becoming an overly dry hockey puck.
Let the burger patties rest for a couple minutes prior to serving so the juices are able to settle back in.
