blue cheese burger

There is something simply perfect about melted cheese on a burger and if you’re like me, any kind of melted cheese is good. Here blue cheese is the star of the show and grilled red onions are the only other condiment you’ll need for this tangy, delicious burger.

1/2 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ketchup
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 red onion, cut into thick slices
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1-2 ounces blue cheese, cut into thick pieces
Sourdough hamburger roll, split

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium heat. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. Gently mix together to form a burger. Season both sides of burger with salt and black pepper.
2. Brush both sides of onion slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place onions on grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until nicely charred. When onions are finished, remove and set aside. Grill burger for 8-10 minutes on one side. Flip and grill on other side for another 2-3 minutes, until almost done. Top burger with blue cheese and cook until cheese melts. Place burger on bottom of roll, top with grilled red onions and serve.

Serves 1.
