Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1 pound ground beef, 90 percent lean
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.
Combine cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.
Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking.
Shape into eight 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.
To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack. 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.
