The Blue Pear Burger Recipe

The Blue Pear Burger recipe ingredients

The first time I had a burger with pears and blue cheese I was at the Elephant Bar in Emeryville Ca. and instantly fell in love with it. I knew it would be something that I wanted to eat again but didn’t necessarily want to go out of my way to get, especially if I could make it at home. So I scoured the internet for a recipes of burgers cooked with pears and finally found one I could tweak to my liking. The blue pear burger recipe features caramelized pears,  balsamic red onions, arugula leaves, and is topped with blue cheese and crispy maple walnut bacon. The flavors go so well together and it is very close to the original Elephant Bar burger with the exception that I added bacon and different herbs and spices to the patty. I named it the blue pear burger obviously not bcause the pears are actually blue but they are topped with blue cheese. Any who, here goes the recipe. Enjoy.
