Dads Favorite Detroit-Style Roquefort Burgers

Fifty years ago, my Dad used to have this burger at lunch with his business clients in a nice restaurant in Detroit, Michigan. They all raved about them all the time. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant, and chances are it is long gone… but the burger is still YUM!



Step: 1

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

Step: 2

Mix together the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and salt and pepper in a bowl, and divide the mixture into 4 portions. Make each portion into a ball, and form a pocket in each ball. Stuff the balls with about 1/4 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese, and gently pat and flatten each ball into a bun-sized burger.

Step: 3

Grill the burgers on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the middle, the cheese is melted, and the burgers show nice grill marks, 7 to 8 minutes per side.

Step: 4

Serve burgers in heated kaiser rolls, with sliced onion, lettuce, and tomato on the side.
