Grab a burger stuffed with blue cheese.

It’s no surprise that in warmer weather I can usually cook dinner on the BBQ. And whether I’m preparing a quick weeknight dinner or something special for Father’s Day, I know I can find fresh and delicious ingredients at my local D&W Fresh Market. I knew I wanted to cook something fun for Father’s Day dinner, so I grabbed some ground beef and blue cheese from the deli counter to make these blue cheese stuffed burgers! And by packed, I mean picked up, because if curbside pickup is an option, this busy mom takes it!


  • Floor Beef: I love getting my ground beef from the deli counter as you can easily specify how much you want based on how many you are feeding and you can choose the fat content! I tend to go a little fatter on my burgers for flavor, so I opted for a ground ground beef.
  • seasoning salt: A mixture of salt with herbs and spices, usually paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. You can buy some in the store or make your own!
  • Worcester sauce: Gives the burger patty a wonderfully smoky undertone.
  • All-Purpose BBQ Seasoning: A blend of herbs and spices that typically includes red pepper, oregano, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper. Just like with the seasoned salt, if you don’t have a store-bought mix, you can always make some at home.
  • Pepper: Classic black pepper gives the meat a great flavor.
  • Blue Cheese: Spicy and salty flavor in a soft, crumbly cheese that melts creamy and adds a nice flavor to the burger.
  • sesame bun: Be sure to check out the bakery section for the day’s freshly baked bun options. I love a sesame bun for my burger.
  • Spices: Grab your favorite toppings! Fresh Market has amazing product options that I love using like red onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. But their brand “Our Family” also offers perfect cucumber chips and sauces that you can use.

How to make burgers stuffed with blue cheese

Add grill seasoning to the meat

Start your blue cheese stuffed burgers by tossing the ground beef into a large bowl. Then sprinkle the seasoned salt, all-purpose grill seasoning, and pepper on top.

Add Worcestershire sauce to the meat

Next, drizzle over the Worcestershire sauce.

Mix the ground beef by hand

Then use the best tool for mixing ground beef: your hands!

Once all of the spices are evenly mixed into the ground beef, begin shaping your patties by forming a disc shape. Then make a well in the middle with your thumbs and fill it with blue cheese.

Including blue cheese in the burger patty

Then, gently wrap the edges around the center of the blue cheese until completely encased.

Shape burger patty

Keep working the meat until it’s a perfectly puck-sized patty with the blue cheese in the center.

Sprinkle patties with salt and pepper

When all the patties are done, season with a little salt and pepper.

Grilling burgers on the grill

Next, cook on the grill over high heat for 3-5 minutes per side before removing from the grill and letting rest.

Cutting toppings for burgers

While the beef patties are resting, prep your condiments! Slice a red onion and a tomato, chop up some lettuce and toast your buns to your liking.

Assemble blue cheese burger

Then stack your burger and toppings, plus some blue cheese if you like, before tossing the sesame bun on top.

Serve and enjoy your blue cheese stuffed burgers!

Simple Substitutions

  • Swap out the cheese. I know blue cheese isn’t everyone’s favorite cheese, but cheese is a great way to ensure you and your family are getting enough dairy every day. You can choose from all sorts of cheeses at the Fresh Market deli counter and a Swiss cheese or Colby Jack would taste great too!
  • Try different toppings. Fry up some bacon and make blue cheese burgers with bacon, or use different onions or lettuce to try new textures and flavors!

Frequently asked Questions:

How can you tell if a stuffed burger is done?

It is best to use a meat thermometer and pay attention to an internal temperature of 165 °C.

What cheese melts best on a burger?

Usually made with American cheese, the classic cheeseburger melts easily over a freshly grilled burger patty. But cheddar, colby-jack, and pepper-jack are also great options.

Is something pink okay in a burger?

When it comes to safety when eating cooked meat, temperature is more important than color. As long as your burger hits 165, a little pink is definitely okay!

Burgers stuffed with blue cheese

Perfect for BBQ season or under the grill any time of year, these delicious blue cheese stuffed burgers are made with juicy beef and filled with creamy blue cheese. This easy recipe is a must for burger lovers!

PREPARATION: 15 protocol

COOK: 15 protocol

Servings: 4

  • 1.5 Pound bottom lining
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
  • 2 teaspoon All-Purpose BBQ Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces blue cheese
  • 4 sesame bun (Splits)
  • condiments for serving (like red onion, tomato, lettuce, etc.)
  • Place the ground beef in a medium bowl, then sprinkle over all the spices and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix with your hands and then divide into four equal parts. As you do this, start by gently shaping the ground beef piece by piece into a thick, round beef patty, almost like a large meatball.

  • Carefully make a small indentation in the center of the patty with your thumb and place the blue cheese in the center (about 30 grams per burger). Gently shape the ground beef around the blue cheese, making sure the cheese is completely encased in the patty. Gently form the patty into a burger about 1cm thick. Place the formed patties on a plate and continue until all four are done.

  • Preheat the grill to high heat. Sprinkle the patties with salt and pepper before placing them on the grill. Cook 3 minutes per side for medium to rare cooking. If you want them to be more cooked, cook them a little longer or until you’ve reached your desired doneness. Let rest 5-8 minutes before serving with rolls. Garnish with your favorite spices.
