1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese ( 2-3 oz.)
2 oz. cream cheese
2 Tbsp. chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. butter
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
lettuce, onion slices and condiments for serving

Directions:

1. In a small bowl, using a fork, mash together the blue cheese and cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the parsley. Divide the mixture into 4 disks about 1 1/2 inches across. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20 min..

2. In a large bowl, season the beef with salt and pepper and mix well. Form into 4 equally sized patties about 3/4 inch thick.

3. Form a deep cavity in the center of each beef patty. Place a cheese disk in each cavity and pull the meat together to completely cover the cheese.
