Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Introduction

Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off? Instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses--Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well.

Makes 4 servings

ACTIVE TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

EASE OF PREPARATION: Easy

Ingredients

    1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
    1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.
2. Combine Cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.
3. Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each of 4 patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.
4. To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they’ll split open and the cheese will ooze out.) To broil: Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.

  • In my house, we call these Juicy-Lucy's, and we get creative with them by adding ingredients such as mushroom, onion and Swiss for a mush & Swiss style, or jalapeno , pepper jack and taco seasoning for a Mexican style. The possibilities are endless! - 12/31/10

  • Well, I have never been one to follow a recipe to the exact and thhis one I tweaked with the seasoning and cheese choices. Still, the idea was great and my family LOVED these burgers. They thought the cheese in the inside was great. - 9/28/09
