Picture of Jucy Lucy Burger
jucylucy 022.jpg
Ever since I heard of the Jucy Lucy (when "Man vs Food" visited the Twin Cities) I've needed to try my own version. Stuffing the cheese inside of the burger, keeping it warm and gooey with every bite, makes the Jucy Lucy unbeatable.
When you buy the meat, splurge for the more expensive, higher quality ground beef. It makes a huge difference. You can use any cheese inside with a perfect friend on top. The combinations are endless; blue cheese & bacon, swiss & mushrooms, pepperjack & roasted peppers...all inside of a hamburger buns. Here's the first couple attempts at my version. I'll definitely be trying more.

Is it just me or is the name a little vulgar. I like burgers and all, but this really bugs me.
Heads up! Grilling is High Heat and fast cooking. Barbequing is Low heat and SLOW cooking. make sure to GRILL the burgers not BBQ them.

nice ible but you sure make small burgers ! just kidding.... kinda... I saw the same show and thought at the time, "whats the big deal? We've been making stuffed burgers for generations !" Literally my g-ma used to make stuffed burgers back in the early 60's. My mom took it one step further and added a slice of tomato and onion. The most recent incarnation involves stuffing the burger with crab meat or chopped shrimp for a surf and turf kind of thing..
