This recipe was inspired by the spicy black and blue burger on the menu of several local restaurants. Pastured eggs not only add flavor, but also healthy fatty acids and beta-carotene. The result?

        This was just the right amount of richness with the cream and bleu cheese that it tasted decadent but left us feeling full after one piece! Adding the Cajun seasoning and allowing it to toast smelled wonderful and tasted even better! Perfect!!

    Do you think I could freeze this after I bake it-would love to make for my son to have a later date!

      I haven’t tried freezing this recipe, but I think it would be okay to freeze. Just be sure to cool it completely and wrap it well before freezing. When reheating, you may need to cover the top with foil to prevent it from over-browning.

    I’m not a huge fan of blue cheese. Do you think goat cheese or feta would work?

      I hope you enjoy it! I have done the nutritional macros for most of my recipes. We didn’t do it when we first started, but I’m trying to go back through and add it to those recipes. I find that my followers really appreciate the calculations.

      Best,

    This sounds amazing! I’m interested in how you toast the hamburger mixture? Do you put it under the broiler? Thank you.

      Hi Sandy! It’s the spices that I toast. After the hamburger is removed, I add the seasoning to the pan to lightly toast the spices.
