Bllue Cheese Sauce
  • 70g Colston Basset Stilton
  • 25g butter
  • 15g plain flour
  • 150ml whole milk
 
Burger
  • 4 Dukeshill steak burger
  • 8 smoked dry cured streaky bacon rashers
  • 4 burger buns
  • drizzle of olive oil

 

Directions
  • Step 1 Melt the butter in a pan then mix in the plain flour until it thickens. Slowly add the milk, stirring as you go until you have a thick creamy sauce. You can stop adding the milk if the consistency is already to your liking or you can add more if you would prefer a runnier sauce. (This blue cheese sauce also works well drizzled on steaks or with chicken and salads) Once you have the roux to your liking, you can crumble in the stilton and stir to combine.
  • Step 2 Preheat a frying pan over a high heat with a drizzle of oil. Place the bacon rashers in the hot pan and fry for 4-5 minutes until nice and crispy, turning them over halfway. Keep this pan ready for the burgers once you have put the bacon to the side.
  • Step 3 Brush each burger with a little oil and place in the bacon pan over a high heat. Do not turn the burger until it has naturally released from the pan or grill after around 4 minutes, (too much handling of the meat can make it dry and split). Flip the burger and cook on the other side until when pressed with a spatula the juices are running light pink or clear in colour, this should be around 3 minutes.
  • Step 4 Press the bottom burger bun into the pan to soak up the bacon and burger juices then place sliced tomatoes and lettuce on the bun. The steak burger can then go over the vegetable garnishes ready to pour the stilton sauce and place the bacon on top of the steak burgers to serve.
