A CookTale

Cathie went to dinner with our dear friend Louise, leaving me to my own devices. I opted for a Burger filled with savory Blue Cheese, condiments and spices. Rather than a roll, the Burger was surrounded with a Tomato, Avocado & Basil Salad. Not an earth-shaking creation, but a mighty tasty way to serve a Burger.


1 lb of lean ground Sirloin (makes three 5 oz Patties)
4 oz of crumbled Blue Cheese
1/2 C minced fresh Chives or Scallion greens
1/4 tsp of any hot Pepper Sauce
1 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp of coarsely ground Black Pepper
1-1/2 tsp of Kosher Salt
1 tsp of dry Coleman Mustard
1 TB of EVOO


1. In a large bowl, mix the ground Sirloin, Blue Cheese, Chives, hot Pepper Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, black Pepper, Salt, & Mustard. Cover, & refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Preheat a cast iron grill pan on high heat. Gently form the Burger mixture into 5 oz Patties. Grill the Patties 3 minutes per side, or until medium rare.

3. The alternative is to broil the Pattie about 5″ from the flame, 3 minutes to a side for medium-rare.

4, Plate surrounded by the Salad & a splash of EVOO & serve.
