Castello Summer of Blue — Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Recipe Type: Main
Serves: 4 servings
Burgers receive a delicious flavor punch from blue cheese, basil, and red pepper in the patties.
  • 500 grams ground meat of choice (just over 1 lb)
  • ½ large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 T black peppercorns (can substitute for ground pepper)
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp chives
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (adjust to taste- I tend to go heavy on it)
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese (I used Blue Danish)
  • Swiss cheese for topping (optional)
  • Salad ingredients for topping
  1. In a food processor or blender, add all the ingredients and blend very well for mixture to be incorporated. Form into 4 palm sized patties.
  2. Coat a grill or frying pan with oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook 3-5 minutes, until the edges are browned and the cheese isn't oozing out. Flip and repeat until the sides are charred.
  3. Remove from pan and wrap in aluminum foil and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
