It's a good burger, but not much more. Can't say I really noticed any flavor from the grated onion, especially when you consider that it's topped with a large number of onions. Truth be told, there is little to no flavor apparent from the garlic and worcestershire. Like I said, decent burger, but I probably won't go through the trouble of making it again.

Good, solid burger - the extra flavors from the onions & garlic within the burger, plus the caramelized on top were fantastic. I used regular blue cheese from the store and next time I think I would mix in the cheese to the burgers themselves just for preference. Otherwise, I would definitely make again for a quick & easy weeknight meal - enjoy!

Make the onions red and saute with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Add a fresh herb like tarragon to the burger mix.

Wow these were wonderful. I had to search for the Stilton Blue Cheese and finally found it at Trader Joes. The onions were a great addition. Used Orawheat Thin Buns to save on calories.

OK burger, nothing special, bit of a waste of a great Stilton.

These burgers are tasty and simple to prepare. My family and I thought we could do without the onions--they didn't seem to add much to the flavor. Served these alongside some potato wedges--a quick and tasty weeknight meal!

I loved these burgers. I used some standard bleu cheese instead of stilton and the carmelized onions were a great addition.

I couldn't find Stilton cheese so I had to use blue cheese. I also substituted turkey for ground beef. It was still delicious. I liked the caramelized onions.
