Recipe: Blue Cheese Burgers on the Grill

We anchored out this past weekend, and prior to leaving the dock I was in charge of making sure meals were planned and ingredients were on-hand. Our liveaboard life consists of us working during the week and sailing on the weekends (as time and weather allows) so we have wonderful access to good food. I can stop into our local store to find organic meat and produce and purchase this for our getaways. Each week, I look at our local store's flyer to see what's on sale and then plan our meals around those items. This week, grass-fed organic ground beef was on sale so I thought, why not burgers as we hardly ever make them. It was a good choice - we grilled some blue cheese burgers after sailing all day and finding a good place to anchor. They went nicely with some white wine and a sunset : )

Blue Cheese Burgers on the Grill


1 lb. grass-fed organic ground beef
4 tbsp. blue cheese crumbles
1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. parsley flakes (fresh, if you have it)
4 hamburger buns
1 tomato, sliced into four slices (preferablly locally grown)

1. Mix together ground beef, worcestershire sauce and parsley. Form into 4 separate round portions.
2. Indent each portion with your index finger, and place 1 tbsp. of blue cheese into each space.
3. Cover the blue cheese with the burger and form into patties. They don't have to be perfect : )
4. Grill until done, and serve on buns with a slice of tomato (and we suggest ketchup and mustard).

I wish I could show you a picture, but we ate the burgers too quickly. Trust me, they're good.
