Ingredients

1 pound 80/20 ground beef

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

Three 4-inch bakery-fresh hamburger buns

1/3 cup hot wing sauce

1/3 cup buttermilk ranch dressing

Directions

  1. Preheat your griddle to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Gently mix the beef with the salt and pepper. Try not to overwork the beef or else you will have a tough dense burger. Flatten the beef into six 4 1/2-inch patties. 
  3. Next, divide the cheese into 3 portions. Using your hands, press the crumbles into flat circular discs and put them in the middle of 3 of the beef patties. Place the other three beef patties on top of the cheese and press the 2 beef patties together, making sure to fully enclose the cheese without over-compacting the beef. 
  4. Grill the patties until cooked to your desired doneness, flipping halfway through. We recommend medium, an internal temperature of 150 degrees F, about 7 minutes. While the burgers are cooking, place your buns on the grill to let them toast. 
  5. Spread hot wing sauce on the bottom of the buns. Place the burger patties on top, spread on the buttermilk ranch dressing and top with the top bun.
