Beef and Gorgonzola Burgers Recipe

What's more fun than putting blue cheese on top of a burger? Stuffing it inside a burger! This recipe for beef and Gorgonzola burgers topped with tomato, onion, and arugula comes from The Bon App├ętit Fast Easy Fresh Cookbook. Seal the edges of the patty tightly if you don't want the cheese to leak out; otherwise, enjoy your cheese-oozing patty.
