Inside-Out Roquefort Cheeseburgers
recipe by Steven Raichlen


2 ounces Roquefort cheese, softened
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
Four 1/2-inch-thick slices of sweet onion, such as Vidalia
Four 1/2-inch-thick beefsteak tomato slices
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Vegetable oil, for the grill
4 kaiser rolls, split
4 ounces arugula

*In a small bowl, blend the Roquefort with the butter. Scrape the butter onto plastic wrap and roll into a 4-inch cylinder. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Slice the butter into 4 disks.
*Gently shape the ground sirloin into 4 thick patties. Using your thumb, make a depression in the center of each patty and fill with a disk of Roquefort butter. Fold the meat over to encase the butter completely and gently pat the burger into a plump, round patty.
*Light a grill. Thread each onion slice onto a skewer. Brush the onion and tomato slices with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the grate with vegetable oil. Grill the onions over a medium-hot fire until charred and tender, about 5 minutes per side. Grill the tomato slices until charred, about 1 minute per side.
*Season the burgers with salt and pepper and grill over a medium-hot fire until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and let stand for 2 minutes. Brush the cut sides of the rolls with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and grill until lightly browned, about 10 seconds. Set the burgers on the rolls, top with the onion, tomato and arugula and serve.
The Roquefort butter can be refrigerated for 2 days or frozen for 1 month. The uncooked burgers can be refrigerated for 6 hours.

Thank you Saveur for this wonderful idea: Strawberry-Lillet Crush.

Gini Lemon Soda $2.99
Perrier created Gini in 1971 with the slogan, “the hottest of the cold drinks.” I’d post some links to their commercials, but they’re pretty racy (you can find them easily yourself on YouTube.) People get addicted to this soft drink when in France–it’s not too sweet, thanks to a pleasantly bitter touch of quinine.

Vignette Wine Country Sodas $3.25

Chardonnay & Pinot Noir flavors available.
Berkeley-based Vignette uses Northern California & Central Coast wine grapes to craft these tasty alcohol-free sodas. I first discovered these libations after I suffered an aneurysm six years ago–I couldn’t drink alcohol, but missed the taste of wine. Great to have on hand, NOT just for pregnant or brain-injured guests 🙂 They’re a truly tasty beverage that will help everyone keep their cool.

But even better is his recipe for rose sangria.
