Grady Spears' Blue Cheese And Bacon Burger With Chipotle Mayo
From "Cooking the Cowboy Way" by Grady Spears with June Naylor/Andrews McMeel Publishing
Nothing beats the flavor combination of blue cheese, bacon, and chipotle. You get sweet, smoky, tangy, and a little bit of fire, all in one bite. This is a great burger any way you cook it, but if you use ground sirloin, you'll taste the difference.
Prepare a gas or charcoal grill or heat a skillet to medium-high heat.
Season each burger with kosher salt and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove the burger from the heat and let rest for 3 minutes.
Spread a thin layer of chipotle mayo on the top and bottom of each bun. Place a burger on the bottom bun, then layer the bacon, tomato, and onion on top, and finish with the blue cheese crumbles.
Put the top bun in place and serve warm.
In a bowl, combine the ingredients, mixing well. Season with the salt and refrigerate, covered, until needed.
