These burgers are to die for! We had these awesome burgers at my mother in laws a while ago. I just could not stop thinking about them this month, and I had to make it. The only problem with the burgers was that they shrunk a little as they cooked. While said shrunk burgers would be great for small burger buns they were a tad to small for the big Kisser rolls I bought. I loved the different textures of the toasted bun, red onion, spinach…and the mild blue cheese flavor.

1. In bowl combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper. On waxed paper, shape into eight thin 4 inch diameter patties. Place 1 T of the blue cheese in center of four of the patties. Top with remaining four patties; pinch edges to seal.
