DIRECTIONS

  • You will need 1/2 pound blue cheese total (get the block type cheese, not the crumbled stuff in packages).
  • Prepare your dressing by crumbling 3 ounces of cheese and mixing it thoroughly with the other dressing ingredients and setting aside to chill (do not do this more than a few hours before).
  • Mix together your spice mix in a large shallow bowl or plate and set aside until needed.
  • Mix together chuck and round, then separate mixture into 1/3 pound pieces (just over 5 ounces)- you should have 6.
  • Divide each piece in half and form into a thin patty and place onto wax paper on whatever platter you are working with.
  • Take the 1/3 pound of blue cheese and cut into 6 divided sections (approximate) and place thin slices onto 6 of the patties you have formed.
  • Cover these patties with the remaining 6 patties and form a pinched seal around the edges, making it tight.
  • Pick up each patty, and gently reform the burger and pat it back out to thinness, if needed; rest them on waxed paper.
  • Take patties one by one and coat in the seasoning mixture, not forgetting to coat the side edges and patting them nicely flat when finished; rest on waxed paper.
  • Cook over heated coals or on gas grill until it is cooked through or temperature reads 160F (do not press on patties while grilling).
  • Allow patties to rest 10-15 minutes after cooking for cheese to settle.
  • Serve on split kaiser rolls (may toast them if you like) with appropriate condiments: lettuce, tomato, sliced red onion, and a little blue cheese dressing (instead of mayo; optional).
