Blue Cheese Burgers Recipe

Instead of topping your burgers with the usual cheddar or Swiss cheeses, stuff them with blue cheese. We've been serving these for many years.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 2 slices red onion
  • Tomato slices and lettuce leaves, optional

Directions

  • 1. Shape beef into four thin patties. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 2. Press blue cheese into the center of two patties; top with remaining patties. Serve on buns with onion, tomato and lettuce if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
