Hamburger with Blue Cheese Sauce y Wine Onions

This recipe was featured in “Hamburger Season”of La Tercera, a Chilean newspaper. My mission was to create something rich with one of the La Crianza burgers and, when I saw they had one called Mastodon I had no doubts: I HAD to use it!

The wine onions and blue cheese sauce mix worked perfectly with the burger, that is truly big!

My tip for you is to look for a special hamburger, big, and follow the instructions to have a juicy and medium rare meat. Other than that, help yourself with a good beer!!! 🙂
