Mini Bacon and Blue Burgers


1 pound ground beef

3 ounces crumbled blue cheese

3 slices bacon, cooked crisp and chopped

Leaf lettuce

8 mini rolls or buns

1 head roasted garlic (optional)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Divide ground beef into 16 equal pieces and shape into flat patties. Combine blue cheese and bacon; place 1 heaping tablespoon on each of eight patties; top with remaining patties. Press edges together and reshape. Preheat grill on high. When hot, reduce temperature to medium. Season burgers with pepper and grill to desired doneness (160° recommended internal temperature). Place lettuce on buns. Top with burgers, roasted garlic and a dollop of mayonnaise.
