Mix up some ground beef with crumbled blue cheese, some finely chopped onion and… nope, nothing else. That was it. I thought about adding something green–parsley or cilantro, but I didn’t want it to wind up tasting like meatloaf. Amounts entirely optional: I’d say go proportional, you want mostly meat with much less blue cheese and an even smaller amount of onion.

Shape into patties. Cook on a hot grill, five minutes per side. I actually timed it, because it was completely dark outside and I couldn’t see the grill at all. Came out just about perfect, although one minute more wouldn’t have hurt.

Serve with a side salad of spinach, red onion, cucumber, tomato, and feta cheese, and…maybe something else? I didn’t make the salad.

Drizzle both salad and burger with balsamic vinegar.

I would definitely make again, although I don’t know that I’d go out of my way to do so. It was tasty but not in the way that made me want to keep eating on the spot.
