This is a recipe our dear friend Jim Thompson brought back
from his trip to England in the early 1990’s, there he enjoyed
Stilton Burgers served in a pub. My research indicates there
are lots of recipes for Stilton burgers, but Jim’s is the best.
You can see the beautiful Stilton cheese juice seeping
out of the burger. It’s incredibly delicious. I have made
these burgers 6 different ways. We have found chopped
sirloin works the best; mix 3 parts beef to 1 part
crumbled Stilton. Gently fold together, take care not to
compress the meat, which makes it tough. Add salt and
pepper on top. Place a skillet on medium low drizzle with
oil or healthy lard.
Cook patties until done. Here I have added sweet onion
fresh garden lettuce, my home-made black garlic aioli,
and low carb bread. Best served with a craft IPA beer,
or Mikami Vineyards Petite Sirah
