Juicy Lucy Bacon Burger – Stuffed with Blue Cheese & Olives


by 365daysofbacon


Hail to the King of Burgers: the Juicy Lucy.

Are you familiar with the Juicy Lucy phenomenon? No??! This is tragical.

Please, let me explain:

2 burgers + cheese in middle = Juicy Lucy

Those are minimum requirements for a Juicy Lucy. The variations are endless. It’s a Minnesota thing. Go crazy with it. (Read Wikipedia’s entry on Juicy Lucys)

Yeah, I made a Bacon Juicy Blucy. I am not ashamed.

Juicy Lucy Bacon Burger – “Juicy Blucy” – Stuffed with Blue Cheese & Olives


  • 1 lb beef
  • package bacon
  • blue cheese crumbles
  • green olives, sliced
  • (optional) roasted red peppers
  • (optional) bacon grease for frying
  • (optional) lettuce type greens for serving (I used kale)


  1. Cook bacon. Drain and set aside.
  2. Slice olives and roasted red peppers, if using. Break bacon strips in half.
  3. Pat out hamburger meat into 4 equal patties.
  4. Lump blue cheese crumbles and olives in the center of two patties.
  5. Place the 2 remaining patties on top of each of the cheesed patties.
  6. Pinch and form the top patty around the cheese, sealing well. (We don’t want a cheese leak!)
  7. Fry on stove top. Or grill. Or bake. Your choice. Take out 1-2 minutes before “done.”
  8. Layer bacon and red peppers on burger. Crumble additional blue cheese/olives on top. Place back in oven, just to warm cheese.
  9. Feast. You’ll need extra napkins.
  10. Send me your tokens of gratitude. US dollars only. No small bills please.  :)P
