Stuffed Cheese Burger

Picture of Stuffed Cheese Burger
Stuffed Cheese Burgers are absolutely delicious! They are much better than traditional burgers, because as the cheese melts it makes the meat really tender. Plus it's a neat suprise when you bite into what you think is going to be a plain burger and cheese oozes out.

Take a slice of cheese and fold it to make it into a small square.

Place it in the center of one of the patties.

Make sure that the square isn't too big and that it isn't too close to the edge, or the cheese with ooze prematurely

Step 7: Put the second patty on top and squish the edges

Place the second patty on top of the first. Then, squish around the edges to blend the sides of the two patties into one.

Step 8: Set the burger aside and repeat

Cook the burgers until desired level of doneness.

If you like your burgers extra cheesy, place a thin slice of cheese on top. Otherwise, skip this step.

Step 12: Remove burgers from the grill

Take the burgers off of the grill and let them sit for a few minutes before putting them on a bun. This way, any juices that are going to seep out will go onto an extra plate instead of making your bun soggy

Step 13: Serve and enjoy

Top your burger with condiments if you wish (I prefer them plain). Serve with chips or fries and a pickle.
