20 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

In medium bowl, combine ground beef and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together and form into 8 thin patties. Distribute Blue Cheese evenly onto 4 beef patties. Place remaining patties on top of cheese and pinch edges to seal cheese into center. Drizzle with olive oil.
