Grilled Gorgonzola-Basil Burgers

Caroline Anne

"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."

Taste was ok. The burger fell apart, cheese works better adding last or on the side. Does not store well so eat right away.

Wonderfully done! Easy and very, very tasty.

This was a solid recipe- good for when you want to change things up a bit. I think I just struggled with what to top my burger with....besides red onion & tomato. Mayo? Spicy mustard? My husb...

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 ...
