  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 2 teaspoon unsalted butter
  3. 1 large sweet onion, sliced into rings
  4. 1¼ pounds ground sirloin beef
  5. ⅓ cup (about 5 ounces) soft blue cheese (such as Carr Valley's Glacier Gorgonzola)
  6. ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  7. ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  8. 4 onion bread rolls
  9. 2 tablespoons fig preserves
  1. Heat oil and butter in skillet over medium-high heat. add onion and cook 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook 10 minutes or until onions are golden brown. set aside.
  2. Divide sirloin into 4 round balls. Make an indentation in center of each ball and fill with a heaping tbsp of blue cheese. Shape meat to cover cheese and make a patty. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill burgers to desired doneness—about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or 145°F on an instant-read thermometer.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly grill onion rolls. spread 2 teaspoons of fig preserves on bottom of each roll; top with burger, onions, and remaining half of roll.
