Black and blue burger

The black and blue in these homemade steak burgers comes from blue cheese and the black treacle-caramelised bacon. Served in a seeded brioche bun with red onion, pickles and burger sauce, it has a unique, delicate balance of sweet and salty flavours.

If you don’t have a mincer or a food processor powerful enough to finely chop meat, just buy the best quality steak burgers you can. This recipe is based on the Black and Blue burger served at Dope Burger in Hull. It has been adapted to make it easier to cook in a domestic kitchen and offers substitutes for any elements they wish to keep secret (such as the burger sauce).
