Step 1

Prepare gas grill for medium-high to high heat and let warm up during preparation.

Step 2

Mix the ground chuck with next 7 ingredients (using only 2 tablespoons Frank's Hot Sauce)

Step 3

Form into six equal size balls and pat into patties until they are about one inch thick. Make an indentation in the center of each patty to help prevent swelling in the center.

Step 4

Brush or spray one side of each patty with the olive oil and then sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on each burger (you will do the other side after you have placed the burgers on the grill).

Step 5

Place patties on the grill, seasoning side down, and let grill for 4 minutes with cover down. Open cover and brush some olive oil on the uncooked side of the patties, sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning and flip the burger. Let cook again for 4-5 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

Step 6

While the burgers are cooking, brush rolls with melted butter and then mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter with 4 tablespoons of hot sauce.

Step 7

During the last minute of cooking, place equal amounts of bleu cheese on each patty, then place the rolls, buttered side down, over the flame and let toast for 30 seconds to one minute. Lower the cover one last time to help melt the bleu cheese

Step 8

Remove rolls first, then place patties on the bottom portion of the toasted buns. Brush top of the rolls with the hot sauce/butter mixture, then top with your favorite toppings and serve.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The flavors of this burger are good, we will add a little more heat next time. Cooked these over coals with great success. The only thing wrong is the thickness you suggest, we never make our burgers more then 1/4-1/2 inch thick, will do this the next time. Thanks for a good recipe, will save.

Wonderful flavour loaded burger that goes right up there with my top favorites. When I first looked at the ingredients I thought this is going to knock my socks off - not so it is just right with the amount of heat. I don't BBQ so I pan fried. Your step 4 spray with oil and sprinkle on Cajun - just great . I pan toasted the bun then brushed with hot sauce, neat idea. TBones thanks for posting this super burger.
