Mike’s Famous Burger


  • Hamburger ground however you like it and from whatever cuts you like but I recommend 80/20 in the final mix and formed into 1/3 lb. patties
  • 1-2 onions cooked slowly and caramelized
  • Good (not crap) blue cheese dressing
  • NuMex Heritage Big Jim (hot) or Joe E Parker (medium but hot enough to taste) chiles peeled, stems removed, and sliced lengthwise
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • Good (not crap here either) rolls
 I season the ground meat with salt, pepper, and a little garlic salt.  Grill burgers and when almost done add sliced peppers and cheddar cheese on top and continue to cook until meat is cooked the way you want it and cheese is melted.  Spread rolls with blue cheese, add burger, and top with caramelized onions.  If you don’t cook the meat to a grey death, you will experience a total brain orgasm and juices will run everywhere.  This just makes me weak thinking about it.

OK here is the “most excellent” blue cheese that is not crap:
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • 4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
  • Fresh ground black pepper

In blender, pour ¼ cup oil and ¼ cup vinegar.  Blend.  Add sour cream and blend.  Add the remaining oil and the seasonings; blend.  Add the bleu cheese to the mix and stir carefully.  Refrigerate.

This can be used as a dip as it is quite thick.
