Jalapeno Burgers with Bleu Cheese Sauce

I wanted to  jazz up some traditional burgers for a nice summertime BBQ, so I decided to use some Venison Meat. I love throwing things into the patties, gives it so much more character and texture… DELISH!

I prepared the meat, left the grill to the boys while I worked on this delicious Bleu Cheese Sauce. What was nice about this was the extra texture and flavor of the leeks, it really made such a nice difference. The contrast in the spicy burger with the rich creamy sauce paired beautifully!

I ended up sopping up some of the sauce with the buns… you know me and condiments… everyone was calling me Kobayashi since my burger was so “wet” 😉 haha

Tasted delicious though!!
