Chef Jamie McFadden has shared his most requested burger recipe, complete with not one, but three cheeses, to create the very best burger you’ve ever tasted.  So fire up the grill and enjoy!

Chef Jamie McFadden’s ‘Very Best’  Burgers
Serves 4
•    2 lbs.     USDA Ground Chuck
•    2 Tbsp.   Fresh Chopped Garlic
•    1 Tbsp.   Bayou Cajun Spice
•    1½ tsp.   Kosher Salt
•    1½ tsp.   Fresh Ground Black Pepper
•    4 Tbsp.   Worcestershire Sauce
•    4- 1oz.     Balls of Bleu Cheese*
•    4 slices    Cheddar and Baby Swiss Cheese

Directions:  Mix first 6 ingredients and pat into four 8 oz. hamburgers. Place chilled Bleu Cheese Balls in the center (optional).  Grill until desired doneness, or approx. 8-10 minutes.  Place cheddar or Swiss on hamburger prior to removing from grill.  Top with bacon, lettuce and tomato, grilled onions, or your choice of condiments! Enjoy!

*Bleu cheese balls are 1 oz of cheese, or cheese crumbles rolled into a ball. Keep chilled just until prep.


Chef Jamie’s Grilling Tips

1.    Clean your grill with a wire brush before cooking (especially important if you use sauces!).
2.    Feel the burn! Make sure you preheat your grill before you start to grill. The right temperature will be too hot to hold your hand over the grates for more than two seconds.
3.    Don’t crowd the grill, as foods will cook more evenly if they have room for heat to circulate.
4.    To prevent sticking, keep flipping to a minimum.
5.    Brush on BBQ sauces and sweet glazes toward the end of grilling for optimum flavor!
