Molten Cheese Core Burgers

I love a good cheeseburger, but most of the time if you apply the cheese while the burger is cooking it all goes into the grill/pan and you don't have much gooey cheese to enjoy. Not with this burger! I give you the best cheeseburger I have ever had.

                         The Juicy Lucy by Cooks Country TV


1 1/2 pounds 85 percent lean ground beef
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 slices white bread , torn into rough pieces
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 slice deli american cheese (1/2-inch-thick), cut into quarters


  1. 1. Using fork, mash bread, milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in large bowl until smooth. Add beef and gently knead until well combined.
  2. 2. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions then divide those in half. Following related photos, mold each portion of meat around 1 piece of cheese and them cover that with the other half of the meat mix and flatten.

    Transfer patties to plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  3. 3. Grill burgers over medium fire until well browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to plate, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Serve.
    Prepare Grilled Juicy Lucy Burgers through step 2. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add patties and cook until well browned, about 6 minutes. Flip burgers, cover skillet, and continue cooking until well-done, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Serve.
