- Serves 4.
- 2 lbs. ground chuck
- 4 oz. blue cheese
- 2 Tablespoons garlic, minced and drizzled with olive oil
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 loaf good Italian bread, halved and cut into 4 sections
Preheat grill. Form the meat into 8 equal balls. In 4 of the balls press them down making an indentation for an ounce of the cheese and 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic and olive oil mixture. Sprinkle with a small amount of sea salt and a generous twist of black pepper. Take another portion of beef and flatten it in your hand. Place on top of the filled half and seal lightly around the edges. While meat is grilling over hot coals (4 to 5 minutes per side), scoop out some of the inside of bread sections and grill the bread until charred marks appear. When burgers are done, place inside the bread that has been partially hollowed out and top with your favorite condiments.
