1 1/3 pounds ground sirloin

1 tablespoon Worcestershire

A handful chopped flat leaf parsley

1 shallot or boiling onion, minced

1/2 pound crumbled blue cheese

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Steak seasoning, or, coarse salt and black pepper

4 crusty rolls, split


Romaine lettuce leaves

Vine ripe tomato slices

Blue cheese dressing (homemade or store bought)


  1. Combine first 4 ingredients and divide meat into 4 equal amounts. When forming each patty, nestle a pile of blue cheese crumbles into the center of the meat, and gently form patty around cheese.
  2. Brush or drizzle burgers with extra-virgin olive oil and grill on indoor electric grill preheated to high for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. On an outdoor grill, cook 6 minutes on each side 6 inches from hot coals or over medium high gas flame with the grill lid closed. For preparation with no additional oil, broil 4 inches from broiler 7 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve burgers on split rolls with lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese dressing.
