Burgers are one of our spring and summertime staples, but I have to admit that we usually opt for the pre-made burgers rather than take the time to make our own.  Yes, I know they are more expensive, but in this case, convenience almost always wins out over cost.

Not anymore!

Not only are these flavor-packed bacon & blue cheese burgers WAY tastier than any of the pre-made varieties, they are a snap to make!  We whipped up 12 patties in just a few minutes (at a fraction of the cost of the pre made burgers!)  To make these as part of a freezer cooking day, simply individually wrap the raw burgers in plastic wrap or freezer paper, and then into a ziploc freezer bag–no pre-cooking required!  Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as they are equally delicious thrown straight on the grill!

    I love this! We’ve been forming our own burger patties for years. We even found a hamburger press for about $3 at Wegmans to make uniform patties. We make about 4 burgers per pound and we stock up on ground beef when it’s on sale for 1,99/pound. That’s only 50 cents per burger!

    These look amazing and I’m making them immediately and freezing so I have this yumminess on hand anytime I want a blue cheese burger.

  3. Yes yes!! This is my all time favorite burger! My husband usually likes his with cheddar but I love the blue cheese!
