Serves: 8 to 10 burgers 


2 lbs ground chuck 
1 lbs ground sirloin 
½ C seasoned bread crumbs 
½ C steak sauce
3 extra-large eggs
1 ½ tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
8 to 10 hamburger buns
8 oz blue cheese, sliced
Sliced tomatoes


Carefully mix the meats, bread crumbs, steak sauce, eggs, salt, and pepper with the tines of a fork, but do not mash them.
Lightly form hamburger patties and press lightly into shape.

Prepare a charcoal or a stove-top grill.

Cook the hamburgers for 4 minutes on 1 side, then turn and cook 3 minutes on the other side for medium-rare.
Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, grill the buns, cut side down, for 1 minute, until toasted.
Place a hamburger and a slice of blue cheese in each bun, plus arugula and tomato, if desired, and serve hot.
