This is an EXCELLENT burger recipe and one of the most flavorful that I've had. I was a little hesitant thinking that it'd be too spicy and the blue cheese overpowering, but with the positive reviews, I had to try it and am glad I did. It had just enough zing for the taste buds and the perfect amount/blend of seasonings. Read More

I was really looking forward to these but was disappointed. I cut the jalapenos back to 4 peppers and it was still way too hot for our tastes. I think it might be better if you boiled or sauteed the jalapenos first. That may mellow the heat and make them softer. As is the jalapeno "crunch" in the burgers just didn't taste right. Read More

These fell apart on us...not sure why. Hubby couldn't get them to stick together after mixing in the soy sauce so he added some egg to bind them together. I think the egg "helped" them stick to the grill. I did use really lean meat..maybe that was the culprit although hubby swears it was thawing the meat in the microwave ( he says it makes the meat watery which inhibits it from holding together). Flavorwise these were all right...the jalapeno didn't add as much as I had anticipated though. For us this was at best 3 stars but I am giving four since I know somehow it has to be hubby's fault.

This is by far the best darn burger yet! We have always made the blue cheese burgers found on this site but this recipe is far better! Wouldn't change a thing and we'll continue to make these every week! Read More

I made this for a dinner group and since then a couple people have asked me for the recipe. I thought it called for too many jalepenos so I didn't use them all but I wish I had. The combination of bleu cheese and jalepenos is excellent. The portions of this recipe are generous. Read More

Excellent burger! I did not add the salt though. The soy sauce I used has plenty of it already. Also it said to make 4 patties out of 2 lbs. of ground beef. I'm more of a quarter pounder kinda girl so this really yields 8 healthy size burgers. I added some finely chopped cilantro and left the seeds of 2 out of 6 jalapenos in just because I love spicy food. If you're not a fan of Swiss Cheese like me just add your favorite instead. I used Cooper Sharp cheese. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing! Read More
