Servings 6 burgers


  • 2 lbs ground chuck beef
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp seasoned salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 Blue Cheese slices
  • 1 cup fried onions
  • ¼ cup bacon bits
  • 3-4 peperoncinis per burger
  • Your choice of burger buns


  • Combine beef and seasonings in a large bowl and work the seasoning into the beef so it's all combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal parts and form into patty shape.
  • Place the raw patties on a baking sheet & brush with olive oil.
  • Preheat your grill to 350 degrees.
  • Once the grill is ready - place patties on the grill to sear - flipping once to seer both sides.
  • Once seared, lower temperature & allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes flipping only one more time. Don't press down on them - or you will press all the juices out. You want to just let them cook without being disturbed, slow & steady.
  • When you are getting close to your time insert a meat thermometer - if it reaches above 160 degrees (if not continue cooking a little longer) - add your cheese & allow to melt slightly before removing patties from the grill.


  • Place several slices of blue cheese on your bottom burger bun (it will melt from the heat of your other ingredients), followed by the burger patty.
  • Top with bacon bits, fried onions & finally your peperoncinis.
