Hamburger recipes don’t get much easier than this.

Sure, there are more gourmet recipe options out there for a blue cheese burger, but if you have frozen patties at home, this is a sure-fire way to add a touch of surprising flavor and, of course, a nice pop of heat via jalapeño. The teriyaki sauce adds a bit of tang to the burger, and it works very well with the richness of the blue cheese.

Try it with some chipotle-dusted french fries. You won’t be disappointed for such a quick-to-prep-and-cook meal.

  • Burger patties fresh is best, but pre-made frozen works
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Pickled jalapeño slices
  • Teriyaki sauce


  • Set oven broiler to high.
  • Brush teriyaki sauce on both sides of the burgers.
  • Broil burgers for four minutes, then flip and broil for four additional minutes.
  • Remove burgers from the heat and top with blue cheese crumbles.
  • Place burgers back in the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes (until the blue cheese has melted).

Grilling the burgers is also an option. Grill the burger to the desired temperature and then follow through with blue cheese instructions.
