Hamburger recipes don’t get much easier than this.

Sure, there are more gourmet recipe options out there for a blue cheese burger, but if you have frozen patties at home, this is a sure-fire way to add a touch of surprising flavor and, of course, a nice pop of heat via jalapeño. The teriyaki sauce adds a bit of tang to the burger, and it works very well with the richness of the blue cheese.

Try it with some chipotle-dusted french fries. You won’t be disappointed for such a quick-to-prep-and-cook meal.
