Title: Russell's Blue Cheese-Zinfandel Burgers
Paired with McNab Ridge 2004 Zinfandel

1  c McNab Ridge Winery’s 2004 Zinfandel or other dry red wine
2 T Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce
1 t garlic powder
1 t ground black pepper


1. Mix all ingredients together lightly.  If the mixture seems too wet, add more crumbs; if it seems too dry, add more wine. 
2. Form into 4 or 5 patties. 
3. Grill the burgers to desired doneness, and serve on toasted buns. 
4. Offer a choice of toppings, including crumbled blue cheese, avocado wedges, onion slices, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Of course, serve with a glass or two of the same wine.
