Yesterday, the Oscars were on and I love to watch all the pre-shows and of course the opening bit of the show itself, but I almost missed it because I had told everyone in my house (Peter and Pierce) the timeline for day…no fancy, long […]
We BBQ alot in our family…well (I) BBQ. Peter, my husband, grew up in Ireland, so he didn’t really grow up grilling outside like us… and lets not forget the unpredictable weather!
I learned to BBQ from my Dad, he truly was the master of the BBQ! All of kids have so many fond memories of sitting in the backyard watching him BBQ and learning his grilling techniques. (I think I have written this before about my Dad…well… they must be fabulous memories that I don’t want to forget)
I try to grill most of our meals in the summer time. There is something about grilled food that just tastes so much better! And… nothing really like a grilled burger on a summer’s evening…
Grilled Gorgonzola Burgers
(6-ounces per burger)
1 pound ground beef chuck, 80% lean
6 ounces of Italian Gorgonzola Cheese
1 package of onion crusted burger buns
1 beef steak tomato
Romaine Lettuce (we used our gardens)
CHECK YOUR PANTRY
Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Heat your grill, I prefer a charcoal grill. The chimney starter is the best thing that ever happened to my charcoal grill ~ Bobby Flay
- Mix beef with about a tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Form beef patties into about 6-ounces each. Let rest in refrigerator until ready for use.
- Cut tomato into slices, divide up prepared romaine lettuce leaves, and cut Gorgonzola cheese into thick slices to place on burgers.
- Grill until crusty, browned, and lightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the burgers over and place the Gorgonzola slices on burgers and grill until medium-rare about 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted.
- As the cheese melts, use the cooler parts of the grill to toast the buns for 1 to 2 minutes on the cut sides.
- Assemble burger and enjoy! I love mine with mayo (Pierce too) & mustard but…Peter hates condiments so…he just uses the veggies on his…either way ~YUM!
