Ingredients

    1 1/2 pound ground chuck beef
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    3 ounces Roquefort cheese, crumbled (a generous 1/3 cup)
    2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
    4 hamburger buns
    4 very thin sliced red onion
    1 cup loosely packed watercress sprigs, rinsed, tough stems removed

Directions

Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire. Season the beef with salt and pepper and shape it into 4 patties about 1 inch thick. Season both sides of patty with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix the Roquefort and butter with a rubber spatula. Grill the burgers for about 4 minutes per side for medium, or until desired doneness. Meanwhile, toast the buns on the grill until crusty and very light gold, 30 to 60 seconds. Spread both sides of each bun with about 1 Tbs. of the Roquefort butter. Serve the hamburgers on the toasted buns, topped with the onion and watercress.
