This grilled blueberry burger recipe starts with a simply seasoned beef patty, then goes all the way to gourmet with an exquisitely flavored blueberry sauce, jalapeño relish (optional) and a creamy, herb-laced goat cheese spread — all of which meld together perfectly into an unforgettable summer meal.



    2 pounds lean (85/15) ground beef

    1 teaspoon sea or Himalayan pink salt

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Black Pepper

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Garlic Powder

    4 brioche buns, split and toasted

    ½ cup jalapeño relish (optional)



    1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (we used wild blueberries)

    1 ½ teaspoons balsamic vinegar

    1 ½ teaspoons honey

    ¾ teaspoon Simply Organic® Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract

    1 teaspoon cornstarch

    ¼ teaspoon sea or Himalayan pink salt

    ⅛ teaspoon Simply Organic® Black Pepper, plus more to taste

    ½ teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped



    4 ounces goat cheese, softened to room temperature

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1 teaspoon honey

    ½ tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

    1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped

    ½ tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped

    Salt and pepper, to taste


    To Make the Burgers:

    1. Preheat grill to 400 degrees.
    2. In a large bowl, add ground beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder, and mix thoroughly. Form into four half-pound patties.
    3. Preheat grill. Place patties on grill over direct heat. For a medium burger, cook for 5 to 6 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on the other side. Remove from grill, cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes.


    To Make the Blueberry Sauce:

    1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add blueberries, balsamic vinegar, honey, vanilla, cornstarch, salt, pepper and thyme, and stir well to combine.
    2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes, until berries burst and sauce thickens slightly. (Sauce will thicken more as it cools.) Let cool slightly before adding to burgers.


    To Make the Herbed Goat Cheese:

    1. In a mixing bowl, using a fork, mash goat cheese into a spreadable consistency. Stir in olive oil, honey, lemon juice, chives, parsley, salt and pepper.


    To Assemble Burgers:

    1. Toast buns. Spread goat cheese on tops and bottoms of buns. Place burger patty on bottom bun, top with blueberry sauce and jalapeño relish, and add top bun. Enjoy!
