Fast and Easy Dinner: Cheddar-Stuffed Burgers

What better way to start the weekend than with a succulent, cheese-filled burger? A crowd-pleasing classic, this cheeseburger comes together quickly and simply. For a leaner variation, use ground turkey instead of ground beef.

Once you've mastered the technique, get creative. Provolone, blue cheese, or mozzarella would make for a delicious molten center with roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, and pesto as toppings. To add the recipe to your collection,

Cheddar-Stuffed Burgers

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
4 ounces cheddar, cut into 4 slabs
Vegetable oil, for grates
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
Toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, red onion, bread-and-butter pickles, and ketchup

Directions

  1. Divide beef into 4 equal portions, and gently form each into a ball. Insert a piece of cheese in the center of each ball, and flatten into 1-inch-thick patties, pinching beef to enclose cheese.
  2. Transfer to a plate; with thumb, make a shallow indentation in center of patties, taking care not to expose cheese.
  3. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Just before grilling, season patties with salt and pepper. Place on grill; cover, and cook to desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let burgers rest 3 to 4 minutes; serve on buns with desired toppings.

Serves 4.

Wow - snarky comment there, Anon. I hardly think the occasional 6 oz. of beef + 1 oz. of cheese will make you fat. I made some yummy jalapeno-jack stuffed burgers a while back and also experimented with reversing my blue cheese cajun burgers, but as my hubbie noted, when you stuff them, you're left with the edges that aren't covered in cheese. So that was my last foray stuffed burgers... for now at least. They always look extremely drool-worthy.
