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 Appétit 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.

  • 2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese or other blue cheese
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices country white bread
