1 tablespoon   Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon  black pepper
1/2 teaspoon  garlic powder
4 blue cheese slices (each cut into four equal parts and stacked together)
Salt to taste.

For the Burgers
4   burgers buns (split in the middle)
1/2 tablespoon butter

• Preheat a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat and cook the burgers for 4 minutes on both sides. Make sure that the patties are brown on the outside. And from the inside they should so longer be pink. If that's not the case, cook the patties for a few minutes more.
• Toast the burger buns with butter on the inside to make them softer and add to a flavour.
• Place a meat patty on one bun and add the toppings of your choice (mushrooms, jalapeños, onions etc) and cover it with another burger bun.

Notes

It is normal for the patty to puff up due to the steam coming from the melting cheese so, prick it with a toothpick before turning.
Also, it is very important that you tightly seal the patty to avoid leakage of the cheese.
