- 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.
