It's a beautiful rainy day in SoCal. It's really pouring. The house is very cozy; two fires burning all day, warm light, a very good book and day dreams of spring and BBQs.
I thought I'd share my favorite 'Burger' recipe with you.


2 lb ground beef (the best you can find, black angus, Niman Ranch)
Blue cheese
4 Kaiser rolls
Marie's Blue Cheese Dressing

Bring blue cheese to room temperature and form into 4 patties, 2 inches in diameter 1/4 inch thick , place on wax paper and freeze. (at least 20 minutes)

Divide beef into 8 portions and form each into a 4 inch in diameter, 1/4 inch thick pattie.
Just before putting on the grill, assemble burgers. One pattie topped by the frozen blue cheese pattie, topped by another beef pattie. Press layers together, seal edges.
Grill. Rare is best with very good beef.
Toast Kaiser Rolls on grill.
Spread rolls with blue cheese dressing and serve.

(you must freeze the cheese, or else it will melt too soon and just drip away)

People seem to be wild about these burgers.
