We had these burgers a few nights ago out of a desperate craving for wings. These made up for it and more. Seriously so good. While I was putting them together, I realized I didn't have any rolls so I whipped up my trusty Hamburger Rolls that take minutes to make and only 30 minutes to rise. If you haven't made them yet, add them to your recipe arsenal. They come in so handy when you're in a time crunch. And they taste great.
Top these off with as much or as little hot sauce, blue cheese, and blue cheese dressing as you want. A dipped his in extra hot sauce.
If you're grilling these, be careful in flipping them. Some of the burgers are more crumbly than others. You can use aluminum foil underneath them if you find them falling apart too much.
Happy Thursday and almost TGIF!
