Ahh.. the creamy yumminess of blue cheese tucked inside of a juicy burger. And this is no ordinary blue cheese, but Roquefort Cheese. As we approach the end of this holiday season, sometimes a simple burger is just what we need for a weeknight dinner. But we decided to give these burgers a little something extra.
Roquefort cheese has a unique flavor which pairs well with beef. We included the crumbled cheese inside the burger, then added about a tablespoon of cheese to the top of each burger and let it slowly melt.
This is such a super easy burger, but the flavor is amazing. If you are a blue cheese fan, but have never tried Roquefort cheese, this is going to be a real treat.
1 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
2 - 3 oz Roquefort Cheese, crumbled
Kosher Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
In a medium bowl combine the beef, cheese and salt and pepper, mixing by hand to form 4 patties. For the best flavor, try to center a few larger pieces of Roquefort into the middle of each burger.
Grill the burgers over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, turn burgers over and cook 3 minutes. Add a tablespoonful of cheese to the top of each burger and cook 3 - 4 minutes longer.
