"Zola" Burgers

Now that the weather is cooperating, it's surely time to fire up the grill.  Once in a while hubby gets a craving for real beef.  It must be a man thing!  He likes a good burger and fries with that, too.  Over the years, I've quenched his cravings by frying up some potatoes alongside that mound of meat.  But, I'd like to keep him around for a long while so I've tried to come up with healthier alternatives...NO FRIES!

This "zola" burger gets most of its flavor from Gorgonzola cheese, thus the name.

1 lb lean hamburger

1/4 c Gorgonzola cheese crumbles

1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tbsp green onions, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

1 Tbsp butter

3 bella mushrooms, diced

In a small skillet melt the butter and toss in the mushrooms.  Saute until soft.  In a mixing bowl place the remaining ingredients and the soft mushrooms.  Mix well and form into patties.  I did mine the size and shape of the bread. (That my streak of perfectionism showing.)  Serve with what ever condiments you like.  Who needs fries with all those carbs!

Delicious and Juicy
