We have been working on a landscaping project in our backyard and now that we are another step closer to the finish we wanted to grill out and enjoy our beautiful new patio area. I figured I would try a new burger and this sounded delicious to me. It was SUPER simple to make and we loved them. The burgers actually turned out sweet tasting which was really nice. I served it with a gluten-free tabbouleh and some of my red cabbage sauerkraut.
Gorgonzola Stuffed Burgers with Caramelized Onions
1 lb. ground beef (preferably 100% grass-fed)
3-4 Tbsp. crumbled gorgonzola cheese
salt/pepper to taste
1 sweet onion, sliced
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
Divide ground beef into 8 balls. Flatten into 8 thin patties. In the middle of 4 of the patties, place a few tsp. to a Tbsp. of gorgonzola. Place another patty on top and press the edges together. Season with salt/pepper.
In a small pan, heat coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until golden and caramelized.
Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Serve topped with caramelized onions.
(For you non-g/f people, you could serve it on a bun but I didn’t think it needed it!)
