Father's Day Blue Cheese Buffalo Burgers

If Dad loves grilled burgers, and if he enjoys tangy Buffalo style chicken wings, treat him to the best of both worlds with this easy recipe (or let him grill it himself if his ideal Father's Day is spent manning the grill). This recipe makes 4 hearty burgers. Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there!

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
salt & pepper to taste
Dad's favorite Buffalo style wing sauce
4 hamburger buns
8 oz crumbled blue cheese
Chunky blue cheese dressing - I recommend Anchor Bar Bleu Cheese Sauce

Preheat your grill to medium-high. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beeth, salt and pepper, and a splash of Buffalo wing sauce. Shape the meat into 4 half-inch thick patties, with the middle less thick than the edges (this will prevent the burgers from puffing up while they grill). Grill the burgers over medium-hot coals to desired doneness (well-done is recommended for food safety). Just before the burgers are done, carefully place some blue cheese crumbles on top and let the cheese melt a little as the burgers finish cooking - you may want to close the lid on the grill for a little bit. As the burgers finish cooking, toast the inside of each bun over indirect heat on the grill, careful not to burn. Remove the buns onto a platter and smear a little wing sauce on the toasted inside of each bun. When burgers are done, remove from grill and place a burger in each bun. Top with remaining blue cheese, carefully spoon a little blue cheese dressing on top. Enjoy!

Zestfully yours,
