burger, cheeseburger, juicy lucy burger
80/20 ground beef
sharp American cheese cut into 1/2 inch pieces
tomato, onion, ketchup, if desired
Divide the ground beef into 12 equal pieces and shape into patties. (Three smaller patties and three larger patties.)
Arrange the larger patties on a baking sheet or tray and divide the cheese evenly among the patties placing directly in the center of the burger.
Place the smaller patties on top and fold the edges of the bottom patty up over the sides pinching to seal the edges.
Grill the burgers (or pan fry) bottom side down for 5 minutes and then flip the burgers over.
Using a skewer, poke a hole in the top of each burger. This allows the steam to escape and keeps the cheese from busting out of the seams.
Continue cooking the burgers for an additional 3-4 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness.
Allow the burgers to rest for 2-3 minutes before serving so you don’t burn yourself on the molten cheese!
Serve on buns with your favorite burger toppings.
Juicy Lucy Burgers can be assembled up to 8 hours prior to cooking. Allow to come to room temperature before cooking or grilling your burgers.
