Instructions Checklist
  • Place blueberries in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped but not pureed. Mix blueberries, ground beef, flax meal, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; form into 12 burger patties. Freeze until patties are firm, about 10 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cook burgers on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

I use 90 or 95 percent lean ground beef for this recipe.

Kosher salt can be used in place of sea salt, if desired.

Grill patties depending on how you like your burgers cooked. The meat is lean and will cook quickly with no flare ups.
