Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 (4 ounce) packages crumbled blue cheese

  • 8 hamburger buns

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Mix ground beef, red pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl; divide and form into 16 patties. Place 1 ounce blue cheese in the center atop each of 8 of the patties. Top each cheese-topped patty with an unadorned patty, pressing the sides together so the cheese doesn't fall out.

  3. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 7 to 10 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the meat should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
