The past several weeks ground beef and turkey have been on sale for great deals! The other day I couldn’t help myself and I wanted to create a new burger recipe. I had some leftover gorgonzola from a salad I made earlier in the week and my mouth was watering before I even had finished the recipe idea in my head. I love the smooth, salty flavor of gorgonzola. It has a more mild flavor than blue cheese and pairs perfectly with any red meat. I know these burgers sound kind of exotic, but all of my kids, down to my 3 year old, ate their hamburger in two seconds flat–not to mention they were easy to throw together. The creamy sauce, the sauteed mushrooms, the roasted red pepper, all squished together in between a soft bun. Oh man, a good burger just makes me happy!! My mouth is watering just thinking about them. I hope you enjoy these burgers as much as we did 😉
