Beef Burgers Stuffed with Gorgonzola Cheese and Raisins
2 1/4 lb. ground beef
4 tbsp dried breadcrumbs
2 egg
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 medium onion, diced
8 oz gorgonzola cheese
6 oz raisins
1 cup hot water
black pepper
4 tomatoes, thinly sliced
6 hamburger bun

Preheat the barbeque to high. Put the raisins to soak in the warm water. In a large bowl mix the meat and the finely diced onions together. Crack in the eggs and stir in the breadcrumbs. Divide the meat into six portions.

Form them into patty shapes. Divide the Gorgonzola cheese into six equal portions. Using your finger, make a hole in the centre of each patty and feed the cheese into the centre. Drain the raisins and split them equally between the burgers.

Add them to the cheese in the centre of the patty. Close the hole by forming the meat back over the top. Brush the outside of the burger with melted butter. Season with salt and pepper. Oil the grate on the barbeque. Put the burgers onto the heat and grill until browned, about 4 minutes per side, basting with butter.

Slice the buns in half and brush the cut sides with butter. Put them face-down on the grill to toast slightly, about 2 minutes.

Serve the burgers on the buns with a large slice of tomato on top and blue cheese mayonnaise on the side.
