In every bite of this cheese burger, there is something American about it. From the Pennsylvania bacon to the Midwestern bleu cheese, the Red, White and Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger is a tribute to what makes this country great, its people!


Americans are hard workers that do not give up and inspire others to take a chance on life.

Why use bleu cheese?


Bleu cheese is a massive compliment to the bacon & beef on the Red, White & Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger. The tanginess of bleu cheese is one of my favorite attributes about it.

It really brings a different burst of flavor to any food that you add it to. I love the creaminess of bleu cheese as well. This tends to balance out the crunchiness of the bacon and the saltiness of the burger. Definitely a must for making this bleu cheese bacon burger.


How can I make this burger better?


Well, I don’t really think there is a way to make this burger better. But, you could definitely add some Bacon Wrapped BBQ Jalapeno Poppers to the side for this Independence Day meal.

The Jalapeno Poppers are a really great option for an appetizer before you devour the Red, White & Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger. Add them to your list while you are shopping for the burger ingredients.
