By filing the center of the patty with cheese, you get a truly juicy burger, this all gives it a slightly different texture to your usual burger.


  • Burger Bun
  • Chuck Steak
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Caramelized Onions
  • Mustard

Step 1: Step 1: to Start Off We Need to Make the Patty.

Setup either a mincer or food processor with the cutting blades.

I’m using chuck beef; I find it has great flavour for a burger. Mince the chuck beef. I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.

Step 2: Slice Some Cheese Into Strips.

Slice some cheese into strips. I’m using cheddar but feel free to experiment with different types of cheese.

Take a hand full of the mince and mould the first patty.

Then layer out the cheese in two layers.

Mould the second patty but make this one 10% larger

This will allow you to fold the edge down and seal the cheese inside.

Place them in the fridge for half an hour just to firm up.

Step 3: Next, You’ll Need to Light a Chimney of Charcoal.

Setup the BBQ for direct grilling.

Step 4: Now, Place the Patty Over the Charcoal.

Make sure to rotate the patty minute.

Cook for 2 minutes before flipping.

Toast your bun now if you like.

Cover with the lid for 2 minutes for beautiful melted cheese in the centre.

Now it’s time to make this burger.

Step 5: Place the Patty on the Bun.

Spoon of a layer of caramelized onions.

Then add some mustard to the top half of the bun before placing it on top.

Step 6: There You Have It! Juicy Lucy (or Jucy Lucy) Cheeseburger
