Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Burger

Serves 1


  • 6 ounces ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 ounces blue cheese
  • 2 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia nut oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 Napa cabbage leaves


  1. In a small bowl, mix the beef, turmeric, cumin, salt and pepper, blue cheese, and bacon. Form into a patty. Be careful not to overwork the meat or pack the patty too tightly. Set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the skillet and drain on a paper towel.
  3. In the same skillet, cook the burger to the desired temperature, 3 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare (which I recommend for this burger so the cheese doesn’t fall out).
  4. Place the cabbage leaves on a plate. Put the burger on top and then the caramelized onions. Serve.
