"I tasted these burgers in Athens, Georgia. They were so good that I made my own recipe. It combines fresh basil, Gorgonzola cheese, and garlic, and it's easy enough for a quick and simple dinner. Serve them on toasted sourdough or ciabatta buns."

ground sirloin, or extra lean beef
1 (4 ounce) container
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
fresh basil leaves, chopped
salt and black pepper to taste
Yum! Like another reviewer said, you will lose quite a bit of the gorgonzola to the grill as it melts. I'm thinking of putting the cheese in the middle of the burger next time to try to hang on to more of it. I ended up adding a little cheese to the top of the burgers - excellent. Thanks for the recipe!
Wow, this makes a delicious burger. I highly recommend this recipe. I used organic extra lean ground beef and accompanied the dish with sweet potato fries. I also put grilled onions and microgreens on the burger bun. Thanks for the recipe! Easy and delicious.
My new favorite burgers. I added worchestershire sauce. I also saved 1/4 of the gorgonzola to put on top of the burger once it was finished cooking. I cooked the burgers on our inside grill. Delish!!
My husband liked these better than I did. I thought the basil was a bit overdone, which made me sad, because I had so much of it to use and was going to get rid of it in freezer burgers :p I would like to give this 5 stars because my husband liked it so much (he doesn't usually ask me what's in a burger, but this time he did...when I asked why he asked, he said, "Because I taste something and I can't usually taste that".)...but I can't give it 5, because I really do believe the recipe calls for more basil than most adults (and certainly most kids) will find tolerable. Great concept, and I will make it again reducing the basil by about a third. Thanks, Caroline Anne!
These were pretty good burgers, just not as wonderful as I wanted them to be. I will try them again using ground round, maybe, since the extra lean seemed a little dry to me. I think the cheese melted off during cooking, so I will also add it on top at the end of cooking. The basil(from my garden:)) was a really nice flavor.
I dont eat hamburgers that often, but these were delicious! My boyfriend was really impressed too. After I had made the patties, he said they looked like those burgers you get pre-made in the "speciality" section of the meat department. We both loved them. Definitely a great new spin on the hamburger. Great mixture of flavors! Thanks for posting this recipe!
Wonderfully done! Easy and very, very tasty.
