 This burger. Really burgers in general. And I’ve only made this one a zillion and one times and it covers every single one of my hankerings. Bacon, cheese WIN!

Now, I wasn’t planning on blogging this recipe at all because it was suppose to be one of those quick and easy dinners. And for once a meal without the camera slung around my neck. But since I can’t resist the urge to take pictures of food, and I couldn’t possibly deprive you of this burger.

I started by mixing a pound of both ground sirloin and chuck and made 6 patties. Then I simply stuff the centers with Gorgonzola cheese.

In the past I have stuffed burgers with cheddar, Colby jack and bacon, but Gorgonzola is still my cheese of choice. Or choice of cheese. My cheesy choice. Ha!

Then just before grilling I make a dimple in the center of the burger to keep the burger flat during grilling.

Next, sprinkle it with a little burger seasoning that may or may not be McCormick Hamburger seasoning. In a single pinch it has the perfect amount of salt, pepper and garlic. LOVE IT!

Then place the grilled burger on top of a toasted bun with a few strips of extra-crispy bacon. Then and some charred red onion rings (hence the black in the title ;)), topped with crisp, fresh romaine lettuce leafs and there you have it, a totally rocked out burger. Have I sold you yet?

I normally don’t cut my burgers in half, I’m particularly fond of biting into a thick burger and letting the crumbs and juices chill out on my face. But you all HAVE to see the little surprise inside. Ooey. Gooey. Cheese! I mean C’MON! It’s freaking awesome I tell you! There is something about blackened red onion, bacon and blue cheese that makes me smile… like one of those “pudding face” smiles. 😀

So I’ll leave you with this burger. Meanwhile I go and run 57 miles and do 8,500 sit-ups just to work off some of that cheese and bacon. While I’m doing that… tell me… what’s your favorite burger?
