We recently swung past our friends at Easey’s with promise of two great things 1) a new burger… a blue cheese burger and 2) the man and legend Adam Richman, of Man Versus Food, to introduce us to this mouth-watering treat.
The scene for the evening was set; a flowing bar, roving beer battered chips and a Burger Blue Station packed with the perfect condiments and accompaniments to match the much anticipated Costello Burger Blue; Australia’s first sliced blue cheese.
We’ve been admiring Easey’s menu since it first opened its train carriage doors in 2015 and were beyond excited at the prospect of a new blue cheese burger. Overwhelmed with burger toppings, we took Adam’s advice and laid down ice-cold lettuce and tomato, sautéed onions, crispy bacon and fig chutney.
The result? INCREDIBLE!
Whilst devouring our creation, Adam shared his predictions in the burger world for 2017 – think artisanal creations; no buns, new proteins being used and plant based burgers, and proclaimed his love of blue cheese (we have so much in common!)
“I love blue cheese on a burger! It has such a sharp taste, it’s a really great balance to the richness of a burger patty. Without question, I would definitely serve it with somewhat thickly cut black pepper-crusted bacon, sautéed onions and mushrooms and some kind of plum tomato or oven-dried tomato. And because burger cheese, but with more of a flavor punch than perhaps more traditional cheeses, you don’t need to use a lot to get great flavor in every bite!”
You can add a slide of Costello Burger Blue on any burger at Easey’s until 13th Nov (or while stocks last) or can try it for yourself at home; Burger Blue is available at major supermarkets for $7.99.
