1/2cupblue cheese crumblespacked, + extra for topping the burger, optional
salt and pepper
Mushroom and Onion Topping:
2TBextra virgin olive oilor butter, ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil also work
1cupsliced mushroomsI prefer cremini or mini portobellos but any variety will work.
1cupsliced yellow onion
1pinchsalt and pepper
Heat the grill to high (about 450F). In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, chipotle powder, and blue cheese crumbles. Form the beef into 4 equal-size patties. Sprinkle the patties on each side with salt and pepper (just enough for a light seasoning and flavor). Place the burgers on the grill. Grill the burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your desired doneness. If you'd like toasted buns, place the buns on the grill, but away from the direct heat, during the last 4-5 minutes of cooking time.
While the burgers cook, prepare the mushroom and onion topping. Warm the olive oil in a skillet, then add the sliced mushrooms and onion slices. Sauté the mushrooms and onions for 5-7 minutes, until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are tender. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper over the mushrooms and onions.
To build your burger: top your burger, on the toasted bun or on a plate for a fork and knife burger, with arugula (spinach or lettuce also work), extra blue cheese crumbles (optional), mushrooms and onions, and homemade mayo (or cleaner store-bought mayo--see options in the story above). I also love to add a few slices of avocado to this burger...yum!!
