Ingredients

Burgers:
2 pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1 shallot, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
3 ounces blue cheese
8 hamburger buns
8 small lettuce leaves
8 thin slices tomato
8 thin slices red onion
Sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup ranch dressing
2 tablespoons chopped pickle
1 teaspoon hot sauce

Preparation

1. Make burgers: In a large bowl, combine beef, parsley, shallot, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne. Using your fingers, mix gently but thoroughly. Divide meat mixture into 16 disks. Portion cheese into 8 small disks and place in the center of 8 hamburger disks. Top with remaining hamburger disks, pressing to seal.

2. Make sauce: In a bowl, combine ketchup, dressing, pickle and hot sauce. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

3. Preheat grill to medium. Grill hamburgers for about 7 minutes (for medium-rare), turning once. Remove from heat and let rest for 2 minutes. Grill buns, cut sides down, for 30 seconds.

4. Serve burgers on buns with sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
