Blue Cheese Burgers

We love burgers. Really. Like, could eat them every single week at least once love them.

But, it’s been awhile since I posted a burger recipe. When I heard this month’s Improv Cooking ingredients were red, white, and blue my mind went right to a burger with blue cheese.

I am so glad I did because these are amazing. The blue cheese sauce was so flavorful and added a whole nother layer of tastiness to the burger. It’s also so easy to make.
