Grilled Veggie Burgers

this isn't what you think. not a veggie burger but a burger with veggies. this is a real ground beef
hamburger with roasted veggies and gorgonzola cheese.
if you are looking for a new hamburger for the summer, look no further. this is awesome and packed with veggies - zucchini, squash, and onions to be exact.
it's important to dice the veggies fairly small so they all fit nicely into the hamburger patty. the veggies roast at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until they are just starting to brown.

Vegetable Stuffed Burgers
makes 8 patties

2 lbs lean ground beef (i have also used ground bison)
1 medium zucchini, diced
1 medium squash, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 envelope onion soup mix
5 oz gorgonzola cheese (feta is good too)
salt and pepper

dice vegetables and roast in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. remove and let cool slightly.

meanwhile, prepare grill.
 mix ground beef, roasted vegetable, cheese, and onion soup mix with your hands until combined but do not overmix.
form into 8 patties. grill 5 minutes per side. remove from grill and cover with foil to keep warm.
we served the burgers with a wonderful garden salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado, thinly sliced onion and homemade balsamic viniagrette.
