Ball Park Zesty Black & Blue Burger

Elevate your burger with chopped bacon, spicy seasonings, and a hearty helping of Danish blue cheese for a burger that knocks it out of the park.

Ingredients

  • 10  Ball Park hamburger buns
  • 2  Pounds  Ground beef
  • Eggs
  • 1  Teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  Cup  Cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1  Cup  Green onion, chopped
  • 1  Tablespoon  Minced garlic
  • 6  Ounces  Danish blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1  Teaspoon  Dried oregano
  • 1  Tablespoon  Crushed red pepper
  • 2  Teaspoons  Fresh black pepper
  • 2  Teaspoons  Sea salt
  • 1  Tablespoon  Onion powder
  • 2  Tablespoons  Brown sugar

Directions

Preheat grill to medium heat. 

Whisk eggs in a bowl and stir in Worcestershire sauce, bacon, green onion, garlic, and blue cheese. 

In a large bowl, mix beef and egg mixture with a fork. 

Shape into six burger patties.

Whisk remaining ingredients together to make the blackening spice and dust onto patties. Be sure to lightly rub the blackening spice onto each side and let rest in the refrigerator for ten minutes.

Then place burgers on the grill and cook to desired temperature.

Burger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Burger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
