  • 4Servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (2 to 3 ounces)
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Lettuce, onion slices and condiments, for serving

Preparation

In a small bowl, using a fork, mash together the blue cheese and cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the parsley. Divide the mixture into 4 disks about 1 1/2 inches across. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, season the beef with salt and pepper and mix well. Form into 4 equally sized patties about 3/4 inch thick.

Form a deep cavity in the center of each beef patty. Place a cheese disk in each cavity and pull the meat together to completely cover the cheese.

In a large skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook, about 4 minutes on each side for medium. Serve on the buns with the lettuce, onion and condiments.
