Gorgonzola Balsamic Onion Burger
From the kitchen at Almira

One Medium White Onion
1/8 Cup extra virgin Olive Oil
1/8 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Mediterranean Sea salt
1/4 Tsp ground black Pepper
2 - 1/4 lb 85/15 ground Beef patties
Fresh Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
Fresh lettuce
Hamburger buns

At least an hour ahead, slice the onion and place in sauce pan. Add Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, salt and pepper to sauce pan and allow to saute' on low.

You can use any good quality 85/15 ground beef as long as you make your patties uniformly identical. They need to be approx. 3 1/2 to 4 inches across and 1/2 inch thick.  My choice is the (4 oz.) Omaha Steaks Burgers
Place about a "golf ball" sized amount of gorgonzola cheese in the center of the bottom patty, place second  top patty over cheese, pinch the edges of the patties together, and grill.

When it comes to grilling these, I like to heat my grill up to it's maximum temp, place the pattys in the grill with the lid closed for approx. 4 mins.  Then flip the burgers and turn the burners all the way down to low for approx. 6-8 mins.  The grill will still stay hot enough to finish the cook, the burgers will sear nicely when you flip them, and the longer time at lower temp will allow the cheese to melt uniformly between the patties.

Plate with your sautéed onions as a side, and serve without condiments on a bed of lettuce, with your choice of gourmet bun.
