Beefy Blue Cheese & Salami Burgers - Low Carb

This evening we had grilled Beefy Blue Cheese and Salami Burgers. Blue cheese is one of hubby's favorite cheeses. I am not a big blue cheese fan, but absolutely loved it in these burgers. Besides mixing in blue cheese, I also added diced uncured spicy salami. I preferred adding the salami to bacon because the salami is fully cooked and the fat that melted out as they grilled kept them moist and flavorful but also left the little crispy bacon-like textured salami bits inside the burgers. Salami didn't cause as much flaring of the flames that bacon would have caused on the grill either. I seasoned the ground beef with McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning and a couple squirts of ketchup and mustard.

These burgers were absolutely delicious alongside a nice fresh Superfood Salad. If you prefer your burgers on a bun, you could serve these burgers on one of my awesome Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns, too. Because I piggybacked grilling these burgers last night along with the chicken I grilled for last night's dinner, tonight's meal was super quick and easy to put on the table. The burgers only took a couple of minutes to reheat and I simply had to add the salad to our plates. I snapped a photo below and included the easy peasy recipe for the burgers. Enjoy!

Beefy Blue Cheese and Salami Burgers


1-1/2 pounds 85% to 90% lean ground beef (like sirloin, round, or chuck)
1/4 cup finely diced salami (preferably uncured)
1/2 cup (about 4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
2 teaspoons McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 tablespoons ketchup (no HFCS)
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix together using your hands, until evenly combined.  Divide mixture into 4 equal sized portions. Using wet hands, shape into patties, approximately 1-inch thick.

Grill burgers on a preheated grill for approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked to your liking. Serve topped with additional crumbled blue cheese, if desired.
