Introduction

I use extra lean ground beef. The blue cheese sauce on top makes it extra delicious and moist. Yes, it adds the calories, but it's a treat that's worth it!

Ingredients

    For the burgers You'll need: 1.5 pounds of extra lean ground beef, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 3 Tbsp olive oil, 1 egg, 1/2 cup light parmesan cheese, 3/4 Tbsp crushed garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper
    For the blue cheese sauce You'll need: 1/4 white onion (thinly diced), 8 oz crimini mushrooms (quartered), 4 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp flour, 1/3 cup dry white wine, dash of salt and pepper, 6 oz soft Blue vein cheese

Directions

To make the burgers: Mix all the burger ingredients together with your hands in a medium bowl. With edge of your hand, score meat into 6 evenly sized burgers (shape burgers into round disk shapes). Spray grill with a zero calorie, non stick olive oil spray. Pre-heat inside or outside grill (med-high heat). Place burgers on grill for 5-8 minutes on each side (depending on how well done you like your burgers).
To make the sauce: In saute pan on med heat combine onions, mushrooms, 2Tbsp butter, salt and pepper and saute, while stirring for 3-4 minutes. On side of pan add flour with additional 2 Tbsp butter and blend together well, to make a roux. Incorporate roux into rest of mixture. Whisk in wine and blue cheese until incorporated well. Let cook for an additional 7-9 minutes (stirring regularly) until sauce is reduced down a bit (slightly more viscous). Pour sauce over burgers. Garnish with chives. Eat burgers without a bun, or I recommend using a small croissant or high fiber piece of bread (for an open faced burger)
