I'm a sucker for strong cheeses and this recipe sure delivers. I used blue cheese (roquefort costs about $100 a kilo in Australia). The fellas described their burgers as decadent, but I think they are simply delicious. I made half a batch and got six medium-sized burgers. I added 50 grams of diced blue cheese into the beef, as well as cheese on the top. I also sauted some diced mushrooms and sliced onions to serve over the top. Wish the photo was better, but that's what happens when daylight is gone.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, separated (30 ml)
- 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
- 2 lbs lean ground beef (900 g)
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped (15 ml)
