It’s almost time to celebrate the Fourth of July! What a perfect way to get in the patriotic spirit with this red, white, and blue cheeseburger.
(See what I did there 😉 )
July 4th is a Treat
To me, July 4th was always the peak of summertime. I love spending the day seeing everyone in their red, white, and blue garb, cooking out and eating hamburgers and hotdogs, and ending the night with stellar fireworks.
Growing up in a military town, Independence Day was no joke and everyone around was buzzing with excitement for the day.
I never used to be adventurous with my food and stuck to the basics: hotdog with ketchup and mustard, potato or pasta salad, and baked beans.
NOW I try to squeeze in as much delicious, red-white-and-blue themed food as I can!
the makeup of red, white, and blue Cheeseburgers
Blue cheese stuffed burgers are bursting with flavor and American pride. Each bite contains a sharp yet creamy contrast from the cheese, topped with crisp, fresh veggies.
- Red: slices of juicy tomatoes for bursts of freshness
- White: grilled white onion for a savory crunch
- Blue: light kicks of crumbled blue cheese

How to: Make red, white, and blue Cheeseburgers
Break up a pound of ground beef into a bowl.
Add ⅓ cup of blue cheese (or more for a stronger taste) and a few tablespoons of steak seasoning.
Stir to combine thoroughly.
Divide the mixture into fourths and form into patties. Make a slight dent in the middle of the patty for a nice even burger when cooked.
Using an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan, cook a round slice of white onion for 5 minutes over medium-high heat.
Grill the patties over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes on each side for a burger of medium doneness.
Top with onion, sliced tomato, and lettuce and serve on a toasted bun.
Enjoy with your other red, white, and blue themed sides!

That’s so kind of you! And I hope you have a great first 4th of July! It’s one of my faves!!
Yummy burger! Happy Independence Day to America in advance. Hope you guys will have a good celebration.
I love minced onion (and herbs) in my burger but my kids don’t. Our white may to be cheese.
These photos look scrumptious, though!
Luckily there are several white colored food options!
We usually make burgers with olive aioli. So we’ll have to try this one out this weekend to shake things up. It looks really tasty. Thanks for the idea.
Yum olive aioli sounds SO good on a burger! I will have to try it 🙂
Very creative take on the red white and blue theme! I love blue cheese so I’m so eager to try these! Look so yummy!
Thanks! The blue cheese definitely adds a unique savory taste!
These look delicious! As the current lockdown in the UK (kinda) ends on the 4th July so I was going to have a bit of an Independence day celebration, I think I need to add these to the menu.
Thank you x
That sounds like a great way to celebrate! I hope your food turns out amazing 🙂
I am so a burger girl! These look delish, I may have to try it out this weekend! Thanks for sharing 😊

Oh, I love the idea of basing a meal on colours. That makes one try out new combinations and that’s brilliant 🙂

I love adding pops of color where I can and this was the perfect way to add some “blue” that’s usually hard to find. Thanks for commenting 🙂
This looks so mouthwatering,I would love to try out this recipe asap
Thanks so much! I hope it turns out great if you try it!
I don’t like tomatoes but could definitely substitute something else of red (I know I’m lame lol). Looks so good though! Definitely going to make soon 🙂
It took me awhile to like tomatoes even though I’ve always loved ketchup! BBQ sauce or hot sauce may be a good red alternative!
This is such a great recipe idea. I love how you’ve used the red, white & blue, very creative.
Thanks so much for your feedback! 🙂
Great recipe- these look so delicious! Now I definitely want burgers this weekend. Thanks for sharing.
