Blue Cheese Burgers

A few weeks ago, I made Blue Cheese Burgers and put them in the freezer for a crazy night when I didn't have time to make anything. Tonight was just such a night. Andy had to be in charge of dinner, so he thawed the burgers and cooked them on the grill pan. He also baked french fries and cut up some fruit. It was very nice to walk in to dinner. Thanks, Andy!

Blue Cheese Burgers
Combine 1 lb. ground round or sirloin, 2 tsp. grill seasoning, 2 oz. crumbled blue cheese, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Form meat into patties. Grill burgers until done; serve on buns. (My favorite buns are from Whole Foods bakery and French hamburger buns from Publix bakery.)

Oven-Baked French Fries
Andy recommends that you don't stick your face too close to the oven when you are getting out the fries. They make a lot of steam!
Making baked fries is super easy. To make them, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place frozen french fries in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 450° for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp.

The burgers sound yummy! I will have to try them. I need to get better about making things ahead and freezing it for easier dinners.
