Cheese Please Burger.

I have been making these burgers for a couple of years now and while we do not eat very much red meat occasionally there is just nothing like a great juicy burger to celebrate the holidays (like the 4th of July!). Make sure you get a good lean ground beef, preferably organic. I love Publix's Green Wise Ground Round.

Cheese Please Burger's-

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles (or gorgonzola works great too)
2 tbs. worcestershire sauce
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbs dried minced onion
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
1 1/4 pound lean organic ground round
Crusty Hamburger buns
Sliced onion

Combine cheese, worcestershire, garlic, meat and salt and pepper to taste. Form thick round patties with your hands and poke through the middle leaving a hole. This hole helps the burger cook through consistantly not leaving burnt outside and raw inside. It also helps to keep it's shape. Sprinkle patties with kosher salt and pepper. Grill over high heat in grill pan or BBQ for about 4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and grill the buns for a minute or two. To make the burgers start with mayo on the buns, then ketsup on one half, mustard on the other, top with beef patty, then sliced onion. Serve with baked beans if desired.
