Cheese stuffed burger

I've been counting that this summer, I have attended quite a few BBQ summer party over at friends. Indeed I've shy away from the fast food burger chain like Mc Donalds, Burger King during this summer as I realized homemade burger tasted so good, better still if you could grill it over the BBQ. As I'm hoping for Weber BBQ gas grill to be presented to me , I can only be contended grilling it with my lovely cast iron grill and my Neff oven, result is still good :-)
So I decided to make do with the leftover minced beef and some gorgonzola cheese hoping it will turn out lovely. Cheese stuffed burger.....anyone interested out there?

Cheese stuffed burger
Ingredients (make 2 burgers)
  • 330-350 gm minced beef 9preferably with 80% lean and 20% fat)
  • 60 gm Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1-2 tsp of salt-or to taste
  • 1 medium white onion-finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • dash of black pepper
  1. In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except gorgonzola cheese and give a good mix with your hands. Form 2 patties.
  2. Shape the Gorgonzola into 2 balls.
  3. Wrap the patties over the cheese ball. If you prefer you can coat the burger patties with chopped taragon leaves.
  4. Set the burger to rest in the fridge for at least an hour before you grill them.
  5. You can use oven at 160C to cook for 30minutes or over the grill pan for 20minutes or so. Please note that the cheese might leak out during grilling. Therefore I prefer to oven baked them for 25minutes, and finally subjected them to grill pan for 2 minutes each side.
  6. Serve with salad, cucumber, onion and tomato over white bun. If you prefer you could actually add guacamole as sauce over the burger......rather than the usual tomato sauce.
One bite and the runny cheese oozing out ............. Burger will never be the same ..... :-)
Delicious..... and I throw in some homegrown salad/tomato too.
