Cheese Burgers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mersaydees

I enjoy this easy recipe from Pol Martin's Easy Cooking For Today cookbook. For me, it's a burger for the adults. It's even delicious without hamburger buns. Pol, a premier Canadian chef, recommends serving this with his Green Onion Potatoes.

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.
