Blue Cheese Burger Recipe With Cole Slaw

Rich, robust, hearty blue cheese burgers pair up with an autumnal slaw made with shredded saffron scented kohlrabi, garlic, lemon and mayonnaise.

Who doesn’t love a good hamburger? But this recipe is not only quick and easy, it’s seriously delicious.

This is something you can either cook in a pan indoors, or use a BBQ grill for even more added flavor, my favorite way to cook these up.
