Jucy Lucy Cheeseburger
2 pounds ground chuck, preferably 85 percent lean
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 slices cheese, such as American or Cheddar, cut into quarters
6 hamburger buns
Garnishes, such as lettuce, tomato, pickle slices and fried onions
Preheat grill to medium. Season meat with salt, pepper. Divide into 12 equal patties. Neatly stack 4 quarter slices of cheese in center of each patty. Top with second patty. Using fingertips, seal patties together. Patty will have a small bump in the middle from cheese. Place patties on grill, with cheese-bump sides up. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, flip and piece sides with knife to let steam from cheese escape. Cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Remove burgers from grill. Serve on buns with choice of garnishes. Let burgers cool slightly before eating.
