Black and Blue Burger

Serves 4
Cuisine: American
Category: Burgers, 30 minutes or less, On the Grill
Blackening seasoning gives the burger patty a little extra kick while the sharp and creamy blue cheese adds some complex flavors. Grilling the onion and toasting the buns are the finishing touches to this modern classic. You could either use a store-bought blackening spice or make your own.
