  1. Preheat the grill to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground bison, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions. Flatten each portion of meat into a patty and place a blue cheese ball in the center. Roll the meat around the cheese to fully encase, then flatten into patties again.
  3. Make the balsamic mayonnaise: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Set aside until ready to use.
  4. Place the burger patties on the grill grates and cook for 3 minutes per side, or until fully cooked through.
  5. Assemble the burgers: Place a patty on each bottom bun and top with arugula and pickled red onions. Spread the balsamic mayonnaise on the top buns, then close the burgers. Serve with Bush’s® Zero Sugar Added Baked Beans alongside.
  6. Enjoy!
