1 lb. ground chuck
8 tbsp. blue cheese

1 loaf French bread
1-2 cloves fresh garlic
Olive oil

blue cheese inside well and bring sides of burger in to cover all of cheese with burger or it will leak out. Pat out a little more and sprinkle with garlic salt.

Split loaf of bread and brush with olive oil and lightly toast on baking sheet.
When bread is toasted, remove from oven, and rub with peeled garlic clove;
