Gorgonzola and Smoky Bacon Burgers

Serves 4
Time 35 min
These hearty, flavorful burgers are impressive enough for a casual dinner party. Serve with oven-fries, a really nice green salad and, of course, Bordeaux Rouge!
Ingredients
  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 pound 90% lean ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large tomato thickly sliced
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
Method

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, and set aside to cool. Form beef into eight thin, round patties. Divide bacon and gorgonzola between four of the patties, then top each with one of the remaining patties. Press the edges of each burger closed to seal well. Season burgers all over with salt and pepper.

Prepare a grill for high heat cooking. Grill the burgers until your desired doneness, about 4 minutes on each side for medium (alternately, cook in a large skillet over medium heat, 2 to 3 minutes per side). Top burgers with tomato and onion and serve on buns.
