Sun-Dried Tomato and Blue Cheese Burgers on Homemade Buns

Sun-Dried Tomato and Blue Cheese Burgers

3 pounds uncooked lean ground beef
1 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
4 ounces blue cheese
1/2 cup minced fresh chives
1 tablespoon steak sauce
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
12 hamburger rolls

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, sun-dried tomatoes, blue cheese, chives, steak sauce, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, salt, and mustard. Cover and refrigerate for two hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Gently form mixture into twelve equally-sized patties.

Grill burgers for five minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Serve on rolls.


Bread Machine Hamburger Buns

1 1/4 cups milk — slightly warmed
1 beaten egg
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast


Place all ingredients in pan of bread machine according to manufacturer’s directions.

Select dough setting.

When cycle is complete, turn out onto floured surface.

Cut dough in half and roll each half out to a 1″ thick circle.

Cut each half into six 3 1/2″ rounds with inverted glass as a cutter.

Place on greased baking sheet far apart and brush with melted butter.

Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour.

Bake at 350° for 9 minutes.

Note: Oven temperatures vary so check after 9 minutes to see if done. Some reviewers baked these anywhere from 12 to 30 minutes.
