How to Make It

For the Beer Cheese Sauce

  1. Instructions: In a small saucepan, make a roux with the butter and flour, cook down until flour is cooked out and then add in the beer and whisk. Once it thickens, add in the blue cheese, the cheddar, and stir. If too strong, add a little honey. Season to taste.

For the Blue Cheese Burger

  1. Form a patty with the meat and sprinkle with salt on all sides. Grill the burger over high heat until you reach your desired doneness. If you don't have a grill, you can totally do this in a cast iron skillet with some butter. When it's done, set the burger aside.
  1. Meanwhile, toast your buns and smear some mayo onto each half. Add the cooked burger, then the blue cheese beer sauce, the red onion, the tomatoes, the basil, and then the other half of the mayo'd bun. Serve immediately.
