Directions

Garlicky Blue Cheese Spread: Combine mayo, salt pepper, red wine vinegar and garlic. Mix well and stir in crumbled blue cheese. Store in fridge until ready to use. Burgers: Heat a grill pan on the stove top, or an outdoor grill to medium-high heat (george forman grill also works great). Combine beef, 2 T BBQ sauce, salt and pepper. Divide and shape mixture into 8-10 3/4 inch-thick patties (keep the size of your buns in mind as well the fact that the burgers will shrink quite a bit while cooking when shaping the patties). Grill for 2-3 min and then flip. Brush the top side of each burger with remaining sauce. Continue grilling for another 2 minutes and flip burgers again, brushing the other side with additional sauce. Continue to cook and baste until burgers are done. To assemble: Lightly spread the bottom half of each bun with garlicky blue cheese spread and top with a lettuce leaf. Break each bacon piece in half and place on top of lettuce leaves. Place burger on top and drizzle with additional BBQ sauce if desired. Top with a small handful of crispy shoestring onions. Spread remaining garlicky blue cheese spread on top halves of buns.
