For the Blue Cheese Sauce (quantity for 10 burgers)
  • 1 can evaporated milk

  • 100 gr. / 3.5 oz. blue cheese
  • 1 egg

Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
For the Onions and Mushrooms
  1. In a skillet add about 3 tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter and sauté the onions in medium heat.
  2. After couple of minutes add the sugar and continue to sauté.
  3. When the onions start to take a dark color, add the mushrooms and continue to sauté until they become soft and the onions will be caramelized.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
For the Blue Cheese Sauce
  1. In a pot pour the milk in medium heat.
  2. When the milk starts to smoke add the corn starch and whisk vigorously.
  3. Remove from heat and add the egg, the nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  4. Return to fire lower heat to low and throw the blue cheese and whisk.
  5. Don’t leave it too long; it is nice to have chinks of blue cheese inside the sauce (at least that’s what my boys want. I wouldn’t know otherwise haha)
  6. Remove from fire and set aside.
For the Burgers
  1. In a large bowl put all the ingredients of the burger and knead.
  2. Do not knead too much or the burger will become hard, just for everything to incorporate.
  3. Take a portion and form it as a burger.
  4. Take a nonstick skillet and place it on medium/high heat.
  5. When it becomes hot put the burgers and cook them about five minutes per side.
  1. Take a bun and cut it in half.
  2. Spread some blue cheese sauce and place one burger.
  3. Add some more sauce on top and onions and mushrooms.
  4. Cover it with the other half bun and serve it.
Note: You will notice that the onions and mushrooms portion is for 5 burgers. I did this because I didn’t make all the burgers in one day and mushrooms and onions are not kept well in the fridge. On the contrary, blue cheese sauce is kept fine in the fridge and when you want to use it again you only have to warm it and add some milk to thin it.
