  • Ingredients required 10 items


  • 12 oz. high-quality minced beef
  • 4 ounces of blue cheese from France
  • 2 hamburger buns or 2 pieces half French bread
  • 2 tbsp bearnaise sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 peeled and cut red onion into rings
  • cleaned and shredded lettuce
  • tomato slices
  • sliced cornichon
  • pepper


Directions to Prepare
Light your grill and let the flames die down.
Season the beef with pepper but not salt; salt sucks out the fluids and toughens the flesh! (You can add salt if you need to at the end.).
Form the minced meat into two patties/burgers with wet hands.
Cook the burgers to your taste, remembering to melt the blue cheese on top right before serving; toast the burger buns or French bread.
Assemble your burger in the following order: bottom bun: lettuce, tomatoes, Bearnaise sauce, and burger with melted blue cheese.
Spread the Dijon mustard on the top bun, then layer the burger with the onions and cornichons, finishing with an extra dab of Bearnaise sauce if desired - then top with the top bun.
If you're making these for a crowd, keep all of the condiments and salad fixings on hand and on a platter so that everyone can help themselves as soon as the burgers are done.
Although you could cook your onion, I prefer the taste of raw red onion in these burgers!
