  • 1 t olive oil
  • small shallot minced
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • pepper
  • 1 1/4 lb ground beef I used 90% lean
  • 1/4 c Worcestershire Ketchup
  • 1 c about 4 oz. crumbled blue cheese
  • Buns lettuce, tomato, additional Worcestershire Ketchup for serving


  • If you have combined oven/broiler, preheat oven to 450°F. If your broiler is separate, preheat your broiler.
  • Heat a small pan over medium heat.
  • Add olive oil, shallot, salt and pepper.
  • Cook for several minutes, until shallot is soft and begins to get golden in color. Set aside.
  • Place the beef into a medium bowl, and add the cooked shallots and ketchup.
  • Mix gently until well-combined, but do not over mix.
  • Divide the meat into four equal balls.
  • Flatten on ball in your hand, and place 1/4 blue cheese in the center. Wrap the meat around the cheese and press to seal and shape into a patty. Place patty onto your broiler pan.
  • Repeat with the remaining three portions of meat and cheese.
  • If you have the boiler/oven combo, switch the oven from 450°F to Broil.
  • Place the boiler pan under the broiler, ad broil for 8-10 minutes, without flipping, until cooked as desired.
  • Serve on buns, with lettuce, tomato, and additional Worcestershire Ketchup, as desired.


If you want to grill your burgers, I would recommend stuff with less cheese and topping the remainder, or just topping with cheese.
