      Savory blue cheese and bacon make these burgers extra special.
    Alicia Ross/Desperation Dinners

 

8 slices bacon

1 pound ground sirloin

cup crumbled blue cheese

4 toasted onion rolls

Condiments of choice

Baby field greens or other greens, if desired

Pan fry or microwave the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels, coarsely chop, and set aside.

Crumble the beef in a bowl, and add the cheese and bacon. Mix well, making sure that the bacon and cheese are evenly distributed throughout. Divide the meat into four equal pieces. Form each into a ball, and then flatten into a -inch-thick patty.

To grill: Place the burgers on a hot grill, and cook 3-5 minutes on each side or until cooked to personal preference.

To pan fry: Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the burgers, and cook four to five minutes on the first side and three to four minutes on the second side or until cooked to personal preference.

Serve on toasted onion rolls with condiments of choice and greens, if desired.

Serves four.
