  1. Remove your burger from the fridge so it can come down to room temperature.
  2. Mix you cream cheese and blue cheese together in a bowl. I usually use crumbled Gorgonzola, but any crumbled blue cheese will work.
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper to the hamburger meat. Squish it together until it is evenly mixed.
  4. Depending on the size of burger you want, divide the meat into 2 or 4 even balls.  Flatten them out with a divot in the middle .
  5. Add a tablespoon or 2 of the blue cheese mixture to the divots.
  6. Then gently cover the blue cheese with the burger. Don’t squish them down! 
  7. Allow the burgers to rest while your butter your buns. Some times I don’t use butter, but left over bacon fat on my buns. It just adds a little extra bacon flavor!
  8. Toast the buns in a skillet over medium high heat for a minute or 2. You don’t want them to burn, so watch them closely.
  9. Place you burgers into the skillet or onto the grill. Let them cook for 4-5 minutes before flipping them over. You only want to flip them once!
  10. After you flip them, allow them too cook for an additional 4-5 minutes per side.
  11. While the burgers are cooking mash up your avocado and spread it on to the bottom buns.
  12. Get out your cooked bacon, slice your onion and tomato if desired.  I usually have pre-cooked bacon in the fridge for snacking and sandwiches. I cook it in the oven. Check out my Oven Baked Bacon.
  13. When the burgers are done place them onto the avocado spread buns. Dollop them with more blue cheese sauce. Top them with the bacon, onion, and tomatoes.
  14. Enjoy with extra napkins!
