Blue Cheese & Caramelized Onion Burger

Blue Cheese Burger with Caramelized Onions

Blue Cheese Burger with Caramelized Onions is one of Wurstmeister Mike’s favorite burger recipes – salty blue cheese, sweet onions and juicy beef! 


  • Tbs. unsalted butter
  • medium yellow onions chopped about 2 cups
  • 1-1/2 lb. ground beef preferably 85% lean
  • Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon
  • Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • Vegetable oil for the grill
  • 4 oz. blue cheese crumbled about 1 cup
  • Hamburger Buns split


  1. Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire.
  2. Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until golden and soft, about 20 minutes; reduce the heat to low if the onions begin to brown too quickly.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the beef, tarragon, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce with your hands. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  4. Oil the grill grate. Grill the burgers, covered, for 3 minutes. Flip the burgers and top with the cheese. Cover and continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into a burger registers 130°F for medium rare, about 4 minutes more, or 145°F for medium, about 6 minutes more.
  5. When the burgers are nearly done, toast the buns cut side down on the grill until browned and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve the burgers in the rolls, topped with the caramelized onions.
