Rosemary Burger (Bun free) with Blue Cheese

rose2

I love the taste of rosemary, as well as the smell of rosemary. If I am out and about and spot a rosemary scented candle, I can’t seem to pass it up. Rosemary makes me think of fall, and as we know, fall is here. I decided to season my hamburgers tonight with fresh rosemary and top it with blue cheese. I wanted nothing more on the side of my burger than a simple arugula salad and sliced tomato for tonight’s meal. The flavoring in this burger is so good, I wanted to forego the bun.

I mixed 1 pound of extra lean ground beef together with kosher salt, pepper, ground mustard, onion powder and fresh, minced rosemary. I cooked my burgers on the stovetop in a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of butter that I melted together.

Once the burgers were done, I served it with arugula dressed with a slight drizzle of olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. I also enjoyed sliced tomato as a side to my burger.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra lean (93%) ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • blue cheese
  • Directions
  1. Mix ground beef together with salt, pepper, ground mustard, onion powder and rosemary.
  2. Form into 3 patties.
  3. Melt butter into olive oil.
  4. Place burgers into hot oil and cook on first side 3-4 minutes, flipping and cooking 3-5 minutes on the second side.

Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris
