Stuff the Inside of the Burger with Cheese

Summer weather is here and all our grills are seeing lots of action. Does the cheese always slide off your burger when you are ready to place them on the buns?  Just melts right off! Check this recipe out I found on Chow.

If this doesn't get your taste buds going, nothing will.  Melted cheese inside the burger.  American, cheddar or pepper jack cheeses are the tastiest.  Always purchase beef chuck with a high fat content for a tastier and moister burger. 

For 4 Burgers: (preheat grill to medium heat)
1 1/4 lbs. round chuck
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and blend well.  Divide into eight 1/4 inch patties.  When the grill is ready, using grill tongs, dip several pieces of paper towels in vegetable oil and rub on grill grates to coat.  

Place the burger in your hand, place folded slice of cheese in the center of the burger, and place another on top of the cheese.  Pinch the edges to form a seal.  When all four burgers are formed, place on the oiled grill grates and grill 3-4 minutes with the lid closed.  Flip with a spatula and grill another 4 minutes.  Remove from the grill and let the burgers rest on a plate with a loosely placed tent foil over them.  This will distribute the juice and cheese evenly.  

Meanwhile, place the buns of your choice on the grill for 2 minutes before serving.  I love Ciabatta buns for the crispness they offer.  Serve the burgers with sliced pickle on top and a light amount of mayonnaise and there's no turning back!

Have an great "Grill Tuesday"!
