Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers

It's sum... sum...  summmmmmmmer time!  Well almost, but it's definitely perfect weather for grilling out, which means Saturday afternoon BBQs are just around the corner!

Here you have it, the secret to what I (so humbly) think is the perfect burger.

What's in the fridge:
- Ground beef, enough for 2 burgers
- 2 Hamburger buns
- 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 TBSP garlic powder
- S&P to taste
- 4 TBSP crumbled blue cheese

- Leave meat out of the fridge for approx 20-30 minutes
- Mix together with your hands the meat, Worcestershire sauce, egg, garlic powder and salt & pepper
- Mold the meat mixture into 2 round balls (cupping your hand)
- Make a large indentation with your thumb in the center of each ball, not completely piercing it through to the other side
- Fill the holes with blue cheese (roughly 2 TBSP each)

Stuffing with blue cheese
 - Bring the sides of the burger in to cover the cheese completely and once again form a ball.  You may have to take some of the meat from the bottom of the burger.  Flatten the meat slightly for your desired burger thickness.
- Grill!  For medium-rare, 4 minutes per side should do it.  These were huge burgers, so I did 5-6 minutes per side.
- Toast hamburger buns on the grill, but keep an eye on them, they brown up quickly!  Don't miss this step, so much better when the burger bun has a little crunch.

 - Plate and Serve!  Here you can see the cheese oozing out of the burger.  This is served with a beet goat cheese salad.... you can never have enough cheese.

A little bit of heaven
Bon appetit!
