Blue cheese is one of my favorite toppings, and it is doubly good on burgers. Add some onion and baby spinach, and you've got a meal! Recipe & photo:

    For a charcoal or gas grill, grill burgers and onions on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-high heat for 5 minutes per side or until no pink remains in burger. Brush cut sides of buns with olive oil. Grill, cut sides down, the last minute of grilling burgers.
