Jucy Lucy Burger

These were some mighty tasty burgers. I had trouble getting a picture of the burger with the cheese inside of it as for some reason it was runny and once I cut the burger it ran right out. Worth a try at least once but I really don't see us making these on a regular basis mainly because the kids and Don are mighty picky when it comes to burgers.

Jucy Lucy Burger
From Cooks Country September 2007
Straight from the grill, the cheesy center of the Jucy Lucy will be molten hot. Be sure to let the burgers rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

2 slices hearty white sandwich bread , torn into rough pieces
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds 85 percent lean ground beef
1 slice deli American cheese (1/2-inch-thick), cut into quarters
1. Using potato masher, mash bread, milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in large bowl until smooth. Add beef and gently knead until well combined.
2. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Mold each portion of meat around 1 piece of cheese. Transfer patties to plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
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.
