Jays Italian-American Cheeseburgers
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2  pounds  lean ground beef
  • 1  cup  crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (4 ounces)
  • 1/3  cup  snipped dried oil-pack tomatoes
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh thyme
  • 4  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 6  sourdough rolls, split and toasted
  •  Sliced red onions

Directions

1. Combine beef, 3/4 cup of the Gorgonzola cheese, all but 1 tablespoon of the snipped dried tomatoes, the thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Shape mixture into 6 patties 3/4 inch thick.
