Put 500g lean minced steak into a bowl with1 finely chopped onion, 2 tsp dried thyme and 2 tsp Dijon mustard. Season and divide into eight equal pieces.
Shape each into a round and flatten slightly. Top four of the rounds with 1 tbsp crumbled Roquefort or Stilton cheese. Put the four remaining rounds of mince on top, pressing firmly to seal in the cheese completely.
Brush the burgers with a little oil and cook in a hot pan or under a hot grill, turning once, for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a rocket and cherry tomato salad and chunky fries.

For a great-tasting plain burger omit the cheese and divide the mixture into four burger shapes. Cook as above.
Shape the burgers to equal-sized, round patties about 9cm in diameter and about 2cm thick. Beef or lamb burgers can be cooked until they are slightly pink inside, if you like, but pork needs to be cooked through.
Always buy lean meat when making burgers, to give the best flavour with less fat.
