Instructions

Barbecue Sauce:

  1. Sauté onion in olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, honey, chipotle peppers, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard.

Burgers:

  1. Grease grill grate. Heat grill to medium.

Form into patties, each about 1/4-inch thick. Place blue cheese in the center of four patties. Top with remaining patties; press meat edges to seal. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted into patties reads 160°F.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Crumbling a blue cheese wedge is easy! Place the wedge into the freezer for about 30 minutes; then crumble with a knife. Blue cheese softens quickly at room temperature. For best results, keep the cheese cold for easier handling.
