Outside-In Cheeseburger Patty
Recipe by: Lisa Lillien (a.k.a. Hungry Girl)
Makes 1 serving
Cook Time: 4-7 each side, depending on the level of doneness you prefer
- 4 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef
- 1 wedge spreadable light Swiss cheese, room temperature
- 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp. onion powder
- 1/8 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- Dash of salt, or more to taste
- Dash of black pepper, or more to taste
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except the cheese. Add as much salt and pepper as you like.
- Knead mixture by hand until integrated.
- Form into a ball.
- Using your thumb, make a large, hollow indentation in the ball (past the center but not all the way through).
- Fill the hole with the cheese and squeeze the meat to make a seal so no cheese is exposed.
- Flatten slightly into a thick patty.
- Bring a pan misted with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. (Use a grill pan if you’ve got one.)
- Place patty in the pan, cover and cook for 4 – 7 minutes per side, depending on how well done you like your burger.
(Heads Up: Don’t press on the patty with your spatula because your burger might ooze cheese.)
