(less than 300 calories!)

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

Serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time:10-12 minutes

Cooking Spray
1 lb. extra lean ground sirloin or ground buffalo
t. salt
t. ground black pepper
4, 1-inch cubes Gorgonzola or any blue cheese (about 4 ounces total)
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
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.
