Gorgonzola Steak Burgers

OK - We really didn't know how to name these but this is what hubby and kiddies came up with so we're going with it.  Our local pizza place had a burger advertised on Facebook last night that looked so good but the roads were slick so we didn't go to have it.  I decided to try to recreate something like it and man, was it a success.  This one rated a 10 by Joanna, an 11 by Bob and a 12 by Robby.  Off the charts good!!

Gorgonzola Steak Burgers

2 lbs. chopped meat
1 Tbsp. butter or oil
4 medium yellow onions, sliced
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup red wine
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 jar (12 oz) beef gravy
4 oz. Gorgonzola or bleu cheese
8 slices Texas Toast - frozen or homemade - toasted

1.  Form meat into 8 patties - or less if you want to make them nice and big.  Fry in a pan until browned.  Place into 9x13" baking dish.  Set aside.

2.  Add butter or oil to pan and heat.  Add onions and mushrooms; cook until onions are carmelized, about 8 minutes.  Add red wine, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and thyme.  Simmer on medium high until most of the liquid is gone.  Pour this over the burgers.  Open the jar of gravy and pour over the onion/mushroom mixture.

3.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and pour the Gorgonzola or bleu cheese over the top and return to oven for about 5 minutes.

4.  To serve, place a burger on a slice of toast and pour on extra gravy from the pan to coat well.


  1. When I saw the picture, I immediately knew it was inspired by that pizza place. Good job recreating it! I'm definitely going to try this soon. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I was so disappointed about not going out to get that burger last night but I think mine would be better. :D LOL

  2. Sounds delicious. My two guys and I are steak lovers. Going to have to try this!
