Grilled Juicy Lucy Burgers - TastyPlanner.com
grilled juicy lucy burgers
2 slices hearty white 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, cut into quarters
Using a potato masher, mash bread, milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in large bowl until smooth. Add beef and gently knead until well combined.
Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Mold each piece of meat around 1 piece of cheese. Transfer patties to plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
Grill burgers over medium fire until well browned and cooked through, 6-8 minutes per side. Transfer to plate, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Serve.
Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add patties and cook until well browned, about six 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.
It is essential to completely seal in the cheese.
- Using 1/2 of each portion of meat, encase the cheese to form a mini burger patty.
- Mold remaining 1/2 portion of meat around the mini patty and seal the edges to form a ball.
- Flatten the ball with the palm of your hand, forming a 3/4" thick patty.
