Gorgonzola Burgers

This was one of those meals that was supposed to be something else and then necessity forced me to improvise. Thankfully it all worked out and we had a delicious dinner.

I had planned to make Rachael Ray's Gorgonzola-Stuffed Meatballs with Tomato Gravy and mashed potatoes, but when I got home I realized the recipe called for two pounds of meat and I'd only defrosted one pound. After talking it over with SP I decided to make the recipe into burgers instead. The results were delicious, one of the best mistakes I've ever made.


Look at that gorgeous gorgonzola melted on top of the burger. Yum!


I made the burgers like I would have made the meatballs but instead of stuffing them with the cheese I flattened them into patties and served them on toasted buns with lettuce and tomato. SP really wanted the mashed potatoes so I kept those even though I don't think they go well with burgers. For some reason SP loved the potatoes, couldn't stop talking about how they were the best mashed potatoes I've ever made. Go figure!
