Ingredients
  

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 lb regular ground beef
  • 1 lb sweet Italian pork sausage
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup very finely minced or grated white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp finely minced fresh rosemary stems removed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Blue cheese
  • Sliced avocado from approximately 4-6 avocados
  • 8 buns for serving
  • Additional toppings to taste: lettuce, tomato, bacon, your favorite condiments

Instructions
 

  • Clean the grill grates and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Line a baking sheet or tray.
  • Add the ground beef, sausage, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper to a large bowl. Combine thoroughly. Make sure both types of meat and all seasonings are completely incorporated throughout the mixture.
  • Divide the meat mixture into 8 equal parts and shape each into 3/4 inch thick patties.
  • Place the patties on the prepared baking sheet and use your thumb to create an indent in the middle to keep them from puffing up while cooking.
  • Cook patties on the grill over direct, high heat for 8-10 minutes. Final cooking time will vary.
  • When the burgers seem to be about 2-3 minutes away from being done, move them to indirect heat and top with the blue cheese. Close the grill's lid and allow the cheese to melt completely.
  • Serve on toasted buns and topped with sliced avocado and your other preferred toppings (bacon, lettuce, tomato, etc.) and condiments.
