Black and Blue Burgers
Hearty beef burgers crusted in spicy Cajun seasonings complemented by cool, creamy, crunchy blue cheese coleslaw!
- 1 lb raw 95% lean ground beef
- 1 oz blue cheese crumbles
- 3 teaspoons blackened seasoning
- 1 cup dry coleslaw mix
- 3 tablespoons light blue cheese dressing
- 4 lettuce leaves
- 4 hamburger or sandwich buns, I used Wegmans Soft Sandwich Rolls
Pre-heat your grill.
Combine the ground beef and blue cheese crumbles and mix them together until well combined. Form into 4 equal-sized patties. Sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon blackened seasoning over all sides of each patty until coated and rub lightly into the surface of the burger to form an outer crust. Place the patties on the grill and cook to your desired doneness, flipping when needed.
Combine the cole slaw mix and blue cheese dressing in a bowl and stir until well coated. Place a lettuce leaf onto the bottom half of the bun and place a cooked burger on top. Put ¼ cup of cole slaw onto each burger and top with the other half of the bun.
