Hamburgers? Yes. But basic fare? Definitely not! What a treat they are, and the wise cook will make up a dozen or so for the freezer. If you like blue cheese, you'll never forget these burgers.
•3 pounds lean ground beef
•4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
•1/2 cup minced fresh chives
•1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
•1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
•1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
•1 1/2 teaspoons salt
•1 teaspoon dry mustard
•12 French rolls or hamburger buns
1. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, blue cheese, chives, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, salt, and mustard. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
2. Preheat grill for high heat. Gently form the burger mixture into about 12 patties.
3. Oil the grill grate. Grill patties 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Serve on rolls.
