Blue Cheese Burgers With Mushrooms and Bacon - Love bacon burgers? These awesome Bacon Blue Cheese Burgers with Mushrooms are the perfect grilling recipe for your block party or just a delicious dinner at home #ad #blenditarian #CLVR #grillingrecipe #burgerrecipe #bluecheeseburgers #tailgating

It’s been several months since I took the blenditarian pledge and I’m on a roll! I started with an awesome turkey meatloaf recipe, then made some sausage and mushroom stuffed peppers. Finally, because we love mushrooms so much, I made a stuffed mushroom recipe to die for (seriously, my husband decided to make a meal out of these bite size appetizers).

I was ready to grab my mushrooms and make another recipe. Since we love grilling in the summer, I thought I’d try my hand at creating a tasty new burger recipe. I looked at the ingredients I had on hand and decided that a Blue Cheese Burger With Mushrooms and Bacon sounded pretty delish.

If you're a blenditarian, you already know the value of adding mushrooms to a meal.

I wanted mushrooms as one of the main ingredients because adding mushrooms makes ground beef go so much further. They also add flavor and nutrients like vitamins B & D, antioxidants and potassium. Plus, it’s a really easy way to trick encourage my girls to eating extra veggies!

Being a blenditarian involves just three simple steps:

  • Select your favorite mushroom variety and chop it to match the consistency of your meat.
  • Take your chopped mushrooms and blend them with the ground meat.
  • Cook your meat-mushroom blend and your recipe is complete.

Optional: Add more flavor to your recipe by roasting the mushrooms for 10-15 minutes before chopping.

When you add chopped mushrooms to ground meat, it goes a lot further

Blue Cheese Burgers With Mushrooms And Bacon

Once you have your ingredients, it’s time to start creating the perfect burger! I started with ground beef.

To make blue cheese burgers, you'll need to start with fresh ground beef.

Next I added chopped mushrooms. It’s amazing how much further the beef goes when you combine it with mushrooms!

Finally I added blue cheese and onions, then seasoned it with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Of course, you'll need plenty of blue cheese to make these delicious blue cheese burgers

I used a cookie cutter to shape my hamburgers but you can always do it by hand too.

While my hubby grilled the burgers, I cooked my bacon in the microwave. I put out some lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and a little extra blue cheese. The smell of both the bacon and burgers cooking made us hungrier by the minute!

We loaded our burgers onto kaiser buns and added all the goodies. How awesome does this look?!

These blue cheese burgers turned out mouthwatering good

I served these blue cheese burgers up with a side of potato salad and some watermelon. They were SO delish!!!

Serve blue cheese burgers at your next neighborhood cookout

These are perfect for summer cookouts but you can always just throw them in the frying pan for an everyday dinner. There’s no way you can go wrong when you serve these! I may even try using this recipe for sliders next time.
