Bourbon and Blue Burger
This is a gentleman's burger. Smooth, sweet, with just a bit of bite. The flavors of bourbon onions, blue cheese, bacon and the perfect all beef patty with the perfect touch of bourbon blended hot and spicy barbecue sauce make this Bourbon and Blue Burger a black-tie affair.
Servings 4 servings
- 1 lbs ground beef 70/30%
- 1 teas salt
- ½ teas freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teas Head Country Championship Seasoning, Sweet & Spicy
- ½ cup Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, Hot & Spicy divided
- ½ good bourbon or whiskey divided
- 1 Onion sliced into ¼” wedges
- 4 oz Blue cheese crumbles
- 4 slices Bacon cooked until crispy
- 4 fresh Hamburger Rolls
Mix the ground beef with salt, pepper, Head Country Championship Seasoning, Sweet & Spicy Blend and 1 TBSP Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, Hot & Spicy. Divide equally into 4 portions and shape into patties. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Preheat your grill.
In a small heavy-duty pan, whisk together the remaining Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, Hot & Spicy sauce and 2 TBSP of the bourbon.
In a heavy duty pan, melt the butter and add the onion slices. Saute for 2 to three minutes. Pour in the remaining bourbon and allow the liquor to cook down, stirring occasionally until the onions are golden and soft.
Grill the burgers, cooking to medium temp or 160F for ground beef.
Slide onto toasted buns, working quickly while everything is hot. Arrange the blue cheese atop the burgers to allow it to melt over the hot patties. Pile the onions and bacon on top and drizzle with the bourbon-infused Bar-B-Q sauce. Place the remaining bun half on top and serve.
