Recipe: Grilled Bleu Cheese Burger on Multi-Grain Flatbread

Want to try something on the grill that’s new and exciting this summer? How about a mouth-watering Bleu cheese burger on multi-grain flatbread, with sautéed mushrooms and onions? Chef Demetrios Haralambatos, the executive chef at Kontos Foods, has developed this simple, but delicious, recipe especially for Kontos Multi-Grain Flatbread.

Grilled Bleu Cheese Burger on Multi-Grain Flatbread

Kontos Multi-Grain Flatbread
1 lb. chopped meat for four burgers (80-85% lean)
6 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 small onion
Salt & pepper
6-8 slices of Bleu cheese (or other favorite cheese)
Chilled lettuce or tomato for topping

  1. Using a cast-iron grill-safe skillet, sauté mushrooms and onion in olive oil on hot grill.
  2. Grill 1/4 lb. chopped meat, per person, to taste.
  3. As burgers are getting close to ready, place a few slices of Bleu cheese – or another favorite cheese – on your burgers to melt.
  4. At the same time, preheat 1 slice Kontos Multi-Grain Flatbread (or other favored Kontos flatbread or pita) for 15-20 seconds on each side. Cut bread into two halves.
  5. Build sandwich – add sautéed mushrooms and onion, and chilled tomato and lettuce. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with fries and a pickle. Enjoy!

“Everyone loves a barbeque. If you’re looking for something extra special to serve, your family and friends will love Chef Demetrios’ bistro-style sandwich. The big, tangy flavor of Bleu Cheese blends beautifully with the juicy burger and sautéed vegetables, topped off with our rustic Multi-Grain flatbread,” said Steve Kontos, vice president of Kontos Foods.
