Gorgonzola Mushroom Burger
From the kitchen at Almira

2 - 1/4 lb 85/15 Ground Beef patties
1/2 Cup or 1 Stick butter
Fresh Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
Fresh sliced mushrooms
Fresh lettuce
Hamburger buns

At least two to three hours ahead, melt butter in a sauce pan add mushrooms,
allow to simmer on low.

You can use any high 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 Steak Burger

Place about a "golf ball" sized amount of gorgonzola cheese on 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 pretty hot, place the burger on the grill, close the lid for approx. 4 mins. then flip and turn the burners all the way down to low for approx. 6-8 mins. 
The grill will still stay hot enough to finish cooking, 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 and top with your sautéed mushrooms, and serve "without" condiments
on a bed of lettuce, with your choice of grilled gourmet bun.
