Just in time for Father's Day, here's a wonder-burger for all those meat-eating men in your life. Bacon Blue-Cheese Burgers are easy to fix and sure to please. And men aren't the only ones who love them! I'm as girly as they come, but I crave these burgers. There's something special about the combination of blue cheese and bacon. But back to the men.

To pamper the dad in your life this Father's Day, think no further than these burgers. If Dad usually rules the grill, give him a break and fire up the grill yourself. These burgers are lickety-split, done in minutes. But if you're not comfortable with fire and sizzle, they are just as delicious pan-fried. Serve with some chips and a whopping slice of watermelon and you've got a real celebration!


Suggested menu: Bacon Blue-Cheese Burgers with chips and watermelon slices.
