Blue Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Burgers

♥♥ Intermediate

I'm always looking for a new way to introduce foods to my kids without them being intimidating, and this is a great recipe for that. P.S. Both of my oldest kids now love spinach & blue cheese!

What you'll need:

1 lb. Ground Beef (Don't get anything leaner than a 90/10 sirloin, or you'll be sorry. the fat content helps it stick together.)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
3 oz. Crumbled Blue Cheese
1 C. Fresh Baby Spinach
Hamburger Buns of your choice

How it's done: 

1. In a large bowl, combine Worcestershire sauce, ground beef, and pepper to taste. On waxed paper shape 4" round patties.
2. Chop up 4 leaves of spinach as small as you can, ad combine it with your blue cheese.Leaving the remainder of spinach as a garnish.
3. Drop 1-2 Tbsp. of blue cheese mixture onto half of the patties. Top with remaining patties, and press edges closed to seal.
4. Grill burgers on medium-high heat for approximately five minutes per side. Brush buns with olive oil and grill until toasted.
5. Assemble burgers and garnish with remaining spinach. Enjoy!
