Blue Cheese Burgers | Roast Fingerling Potato Salad
Upgrade your summer burger/potato salad combo by adding blue cheese (or other flavor) to the burger and using fresh fingerling potatoes for the salad. They’re in season right now and have much more flavor than the big taters you’ll get at the grocery. Yes, they look a little odd. Their flavor will make up for it, promise. If you want to wing it instead of using a recipe, mix them with Duke’s mayonnaise, a dash of cider vinegar, a chopped spring onion or two, some diced Wickles pickles, kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper. Yes, good stuff there.
Love to Cook: If you have the time and inclination, this recipe for blue cheese burgers with caramelized onions is worth the effort – especially when served on brioche. Since the burgers are so rich, this lighter potato salad recipe is a good companion.
Need a Miracle: Same burger recipe as above; you’ll probably have to opt for purchased potato salad if you’re really in the ‘need a miracle’ mode; another option would be just to wash, halve/quarter, toss in olive oil and roast the potatoes while you’re making the burgers – takes only 20 minutes. Serve them plain instead of making potato salad.
