Gorgonzola-Stuffed Burgers with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce

Gorgonzola-Stuffed Burgers with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground sirloin or ground buffalo (bison)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 1-inch cubes Gorgonzola or any blue cheese (about 4 ounces total)
  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup shredded cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 whole-wheat rolls


  1. Coat a large grill pan or griddle with cooking spray and set over medium heat. In a large bowl, combine sirloin, salt and black pepper.
  2. Shape mixture into 4 equal balls. Press 1 cube of Gorgonzola cheese into the center of each ball, covering cheese completely with meat. Shape balls into patties, each about 1 inch thick.
  3. Add burgers to hot pan and cook 5-6 minutes per side, until cooked through (less for medium-rare meat).
  4. Meanwhile, mix next 5 ingredients well in a small bowl. Place burgers on rolls and spoon 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce over each burger. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
