T. Woolfe's Note:
I love my BluBurgers. 2 pattys of good ground beef sandwiching Blue cheese then grilled. There was this great flash in my brain,, Meatballs. Yes, but what sort? We want to keep the richness of the blue and extend it a bit to go with noodles or smashed potatoes. This is what I ended up with, not a five but a good solid three or four that I'll make again.
