We blended the two best sandwiches—the burger and the BLT—to create a twist on both. We took it one step further by stuffing the burger with a piece of creamy-salty blue cheese. Warning: This is not for the faint of heart!
1Preheat the grill to medium (350°F), or get a grill pan hot over medium heat. Combine chicken, onion, basil, and salt. Divide mixture into 4 portions. Form each portion into a patty around a piece of blue cheese so that the cheese is hidden. Rub patties with oil.
2Grill burgers, turning once halfway through, until cooked all the way, about 15 minutes total for the burgers and slightly less for the onions.
3Assemble burgers using the grilled onions, bacon, lettuce, and tomato slice. Finish with the bun top spread with a bit of mayonnaise.
