I’m a big blue cheese fan! Whether it’s on a a crunchy cracker, in a sauce, or on a sandwich, I love it. I think the blue cheese adds so much to your typical burger and gives it a bit of a tang you won’t find in your average cheese burger. the creamy blue is balanced out with the sweet caramelized onions, salty bacon, and fried egg. It’s the perfect sunday brunch burger, or a burger to impress guests with.


This burger reminds me of my husband and his family. My husband and I lived with his mother for about a year after Clay finished up school at Ole Miss. Within that year we shared plenty of meals together. Luckily, I have a wonderful mother-in-law who welcomed me into her home and has a love for cooking just like I do. With all the meals we shared together in her home, blue cheese burgers were a once a week staple. It was a definite crowd pleaser and the perfect sunday dinner. We’d usually fry up some homemade onion rings and toss a fresh salad to go with it. I have so many fond memories with the blue cheese burger. It’s something I’ll continue to make for my family for the rest of our lives.
