Italian-American Gorgonzola Cheeseburgers

Yield:
6 burgers

Ingredients:

  1. 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  2. 1 cup (4 ounces) Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled, divided
  3. 1/3 cup chopped sundried oil-pack tomatoes, divided
  4. 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  5. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
  8. 6 sourdough rolls, split and toasted
  9. Red onions, sliced
  10. Tomatoes, sliced
Directions:

Lightly oil a grill rack and preheat grill.

Combine beef, 3/4 cup of the Gorgonzola cheese, all but 1 Tbsp of the sundried tomatoes, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Shape mixture into 6 patties about 3/4- inch thick. Place burger patties on grill rack, uncovered directly over medium heat.
