Stuffed Blue Cheese Burgers

This recipe transforms the all-American classic into a truly gourmet meal for friends and family. I originally was inspired to make blue cheese burgers from a recipe I found on Castello's website (My favorite blue cheese), if you'd like to see the source of my blue cheese burger love visit the following link!: To reach the desired level of doneness, watch the sides of the burgers as they cook and wait until the pink is gone to get rare. If you want medium rare, wait a couple of minutes longer. The surprise inside is the blue cheese! This is one of my favorite blue cheese recipes because it's so easy. Try serving these with french fries roasted in the oven.

Stuffed Blue Cheese Burgers
Stuffed Blue Cheese Burgers
  • 1 1/2 lb ground lean beef
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • A dash of salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces crumbled creamy blue cheese

1. Break the ground beef into chunks in a large bowl. Add the Worcestershire sauce, salt and peper and mix with your hands.
2. Wet your hands and shape the meat into 8 patties, each 1/2" thick. Make an indention in the middle of 4 patties and divide the cheese into 4 portions. Shape the blue cheese into disks and set into the center of each indention. Top the patties with cheese with the remaining beef patties and gently seal the edges. Refrigerate, covered, for 20 minutes to 4 hours.
3. Fire up your gas or charcoal grill. Grill the burgers with the vents open until they reach your desired level of doneness. Do not press the burgers as they cook or the cheese and juices will escape.

This is another blue cheese burger recipe that mixes the cheese with the meat. Use a full-fat ground beef for this recipe, not lean, for a really decadent flavor. These burgers are awesome when you serve them on French rolls with just a bit of mayonnaise and some lettuce.
