Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 pound organic, grass-fed, ground beef
  • 1½ cups cooked wild rice, cooled to room temperature (see notes #1)
  • ⅔ cup Gorgonzola cheese/3 ounces/85g
  • 1 small onion (3½ to 4 ounces in size), finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a rack on the baking sheet so it sits above the foil with enough space to allow air to circulate around the burgers.
  2. Combine all the ingredients and shape into 6 patties, about 5 ounces each.
  3. Set patties on the rack and roast in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.
Notes
To yield 1½ cups of cooked wild rice, bring ½ cup of uncooked wild rice and 1½ cups of water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until all water is absorbed.
