    from "U.S.A. Cookbook" by Sheila Lukins

    Maytag Blue, made in Iowa, is one of America's premier cheeses. Made by hand and aged for six months, it's creamy tang makes for a delicious melted surprise when you bite into this burger. I like these burgers dinner size, so I make them extra-big. Topped with Fresh Pineapple Relish and ketchup, what burger could be better?

    Makes 6 burgers

    3 pounds ground beef round
    1 small onion, grated
    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1/4 pound Maytag Blue cheese, divided into 6 chunks
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    6 hamburger rolls, toasted, for serving
    Fresh Pineapple Relish (recipe follows), for serving

    4 cups diced (1/2 inch) fresh ripe pineapple (about 1 medium pineapple)
    2 onions, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons finely minced fresh ginger
    1 cup golden raisins
    1 small dried red chile pepper, crushed
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
    1/2 cup cider vinegar

    1. Place the meat in a bowl. Add the onion, 1 tablespoon ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, salt, and pepper and mix lightly with your hands.
    2. Form the meat into 6 thick patties, about 3 inches across and 1 1/2 inches thick. To stuff the burgers, remove some of the meat from the top center of each patty, insert a chunk of the blue cheese (flattened slightly with the palm of your hand if necessary), and re-cover with the meat.
    3. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers, in batches if necessary, for 5 minutes on the first side; then turn and cook for 3 minutes on the second side for a crusty outside and medium-rare interior. Cook long if you prefer your burger well done. Place the burgers on the toasted rolls, and serve with ketchup and the relish.

    FRESH PINEAPPLE RELISH (Makes about 4 cups)
    1. Place all of the ingredients in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
    2. Let the relish cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate it, covered, until ready to use. Serve at room temperature with pork, fish, or poultry.
