Shhh..the blue cheese is IN the burger!
1/2 lb blue cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup minced scallions, including the tops
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper, optional
8 whole hamburger buns, toasted
Crumble the blue cheese into the ground beef and add the minced scallions, tabasco, worcestershire, salt, pepper, and red pepper (if using). Mix lightly to combine. Let stand in the refrigerator for an hour or two so the flavors can blend.
Gently press the meat into patties. Broil, pan-fry, or grill over moderate coals to the desired degree of doneness. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.
