  • Two and one-half pounds ground sirloin
  • One-half pound ground chuck
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Three-fourth teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Three-fourth pound Roquefort cheese, crumbled
  • 8 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Thinly sliced yellow onions (optional)


  • Combine the beef, salt, and pepper and mix well. Divide the mixture into six to eight equal portions. Form into patties. Make a pocket in the center of each patty and fill with the cheese.
