Bacon Blue Cheese Ultimate Hamburger

It's been a slow posting week (in terms of personal content). Me and Honey Pie haven't gone out very much because of the heat. Wednesday we just stayed home and ate bacon / blue cheese burgers we cooked on our little gas grill on the porch. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. (recipe below) and then we watched a couple Samurai Champloo episodes and a corny Star Trek episode and then fell asleep with the windows open and the fan on.  And that's kinda been it. boring week 'cause of the heat.

Aaaanyways, go to Trader Joes and get an Ultimate Burger. Best burger ever.  If they're out, here's how to make them. 

Cook up a pound of bacon.  It should cook down to about a cup.  Chop it up into uneven pieces.  SAVE THE BACON GREASE.

Get some lean hamburger, about a pound and a half. Dump the bacon and a couple tablespoons of bacon grease onto the meat and mush it up with your hands.  MMMMMMMM,  Divide the meat into 8 even balls (I laid them out on my plastic cutting board). Flatten the bitches down with your hand (not too flat, as big around as a coffee mug bottom, maybe a little bigger).  Put a heaping table spoon of Blue de Basque (the best blue cheese on the planet IMHO) which I bought at San Francisco's Say Cheese near my house. If you don't have a cheese shop near by, then get the strongest blue cheese you can find in your crappy grocery store.  Take a heaping table spoon of blue cheese and plop it down on one of the little meat disks. Take another meat disk and put it right on top of the one with the cheese and mush down the edges like you are sealing filling inside a ravioli.   Put it on a gas grill, five minutes per side should do it.  (for extra indulgence, put some sharp cheddar on the burger a couple minutes before you pull it off the grill). 

Now, I wouldn't eat these every day if I were you. HP and I eat them only once a month or so.

    Oh, it's good! The secret is the bacon grease, I think. The leaner the hambuger meat, the more you can add. 🙂
