Blue Cheese Hamburgers

4 servings

  • 2 lbs. Ground lean beef
  • 3 T. sniffed fresh chives OR severally finely chopped green onions
  • 1 ½ t. chopped fresh basil OR ½ t. dried basil
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • ¼ t. chili powder
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ½ t. freshly ground pepper
  • ½ lb. Blue cheese, crumbled

Gently mix all ingredients except the blue cheese and shape into 8 thin patties.  Divide the cheese into fourths, place on hamburger patty and cover with another patty, forming a “sandwich”.  Seal the edges very securely.

Broil, sauté, or grill for 5 minutes on each side for rare hamburgers, or cook longer to your taste.
