    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!  -  01 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  07 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!!  -  06 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
