Blue Cheese and Caramelized Onion Burger

I had some leftover blue cheese in the fridge so I decided to make blue cheese and caramelized onion burgers.


I used meatloaf mix (since I have to cook meat all the way through using the mix keeps the burgers moist), mixed with an egg, bread crumbs and chopped parsley and basil from my garden. I slow-cooked some thinly sliced onion until it was soft and sweet and topped each burger with some of the onions before adding crumbled blue cheese. I used foil to make a tent to melt the cheese and served the burgers with lettuce and tomato.


Delicious and easy. I love the tang from the blue cheese and the sweetness from the onions. Making new and different burgers is a lot of fun.

  1. I used to read your blog all the time, but haven't been on the computer as much lately. But man am I glad I got back on today. The burger looks awesome! I have yet to master the art of carmelizing onions. I never can seem to get the heat low enough and they get too crispy.

  2. I love crisp, fresh salad on a burger, it's so delicious and the colour contrasts look fabulous too. I'm not a fan of blue cheese but it does make the burger look more exotic - I can imagine it was delicious!
