Firecracker Blue Cheese Burgers

Firecracker Burgers

This is a great summer night recipe.  Easy to make the 10 servings and freeze the burgers.  For a more healthy recipe leave out the bun, and just have with your vege’s.  For a fun twist, add 4 ounces of blue cheese. My husband loves this!




1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 large egg yolks (I always buy free range organic eggs)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (we use grass fed 85% lean beef)
10 whole-grain buns (we use gluten free)

Makes 10 servings


1. Whisk together mustard, onion, garlic, egg yolks, and cayenne in a large bowl.


2. Add beef and stir until combined.


3. Form mixture into 10 patties, about 3/4″ thick.


4. For my lovely husband, here are the blue cheese ones


5. Lightly oil a grill or grill pan and heat to medium-high. Cook burgers 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.  Lightly grilled buns.


Place in cling wrap first.  Then put in air tight bag.
