  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Roquefort or other blue cheese, crumbled
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split and heated
  • 4 slices onion, or to taste

    1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
    2. Mix together the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and salt and pepper in a bowl, and divide the mixture into 4 portions.
