Did you know that there is 70 days until summer? Well it’s true. Summer makes me think of grilling, hence, today’s recipe.
Gorgonzola-Stuffed Burgers with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time:10-12 minutes
1 lb. extra lean ground sirloin or ground buffalo
½ t. salt
¼ t. ground black pepper
4, 1-inch cubes Gorgonzola or any blue cheese (about 4 ounces total)
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
¼ c. shredded cucumber
2 t. chopped fresh dill
1 t. Dijon mustard
1 t. garlic powder
4 whole wheat rolls
Coat a large grill pan or grill (before you light it!) with cooking spray and set over medium heat.
In a large bowl, combine sirloin, salt and pepper. Shape into 4 equal balls. Press 1 cube of Gorgonzola cheese into the center each ball, covering cheese completely with meat. Shape balls into patties, each about 1 inch thick.
Add burgers to hot pan and cook 5-6 minutes per side, until cooked through (less for medium rare meat).
Meanwhile, mix next 5 ingredients well in a small bowl. Place burgers on rolls and spoon 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce over each burger. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
