These bacon and blue-cheese stuffed burgers are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. This recipe uses a great technique we picked up from America – putting the bacon and cheese in the burger mix keeps the patty incredibly juicy.



  • lean steak mince 500g
  • lean streaky bacon 100g, very finely chopped
  • stilton 75g, crumbled
  • red onion ½
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • celery salt ½ tsp
  • chilli flakes a pinch


  • brioche burger buns 4, toasted
  • mayonnaise or curly lettuce or sliced tomatoes or sliced gherkins or red onion slices or American mustard


  • Step 1

    Put the mince, bacon and cheese in a bowl. Grate the onion on the coarse side of a box grater. Add the grated onion to the mince along with a splash of Worcestershire sauce, the celery salt, and chilli flakes.

  • Step 2

    Mix everything with your hands and divide into 6 equal portions. Flatten each portion into a thin patty, making a slight dip in the middle (this will stop them doming as the meat cooks). Heat a non-stick frying pan on a high heat. Fry the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through.

  • Step 3

    Put some mayo on each bun base. Add lettuce and a couple of slices of tomato. Add a burger then finish with gherkins, red onions and mustard and the bun top.
