Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

June/July 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (149 votes)

Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off? Instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses--Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Wonderful! I used a smoked gouda/cheddar combo and smoked paprika (what I had) and it was sooo delicious! Next time will try with the bacon someone recommended. Also, love the idea of making these as meatballs for a party - Genius! :)...

These were very good. I definately recommend using a hamburger press to make sure they are all the same size. the meat gets a little hard to work with in such small amounts as well...thin patties. But they tasted good.

This is a great concept, and you can modify it only slightly to make GREAT party meatballs: Mix up the "meatball" meat using these seasonings, perhaps upping either the smokiness or adding fresh herbs, and "wrap" the meat around boconcini (smaller buffalo mozzarella "balls") or other cheese. Bake in a casserole dish with some sauce, noting that you'll need less time to cook the meatballs through because of the cheese in the middle. What a delightful surprise when your guests cut them open and find that gooey goodness inside!

These burgers were so tasty and juicy!! I used half mozarella, half smoked guyere cheese for the inside though. I think the smoked guyere added a kick of flavor and the mozarella added texture. I slapped those babies on the George Forman grill for about 2 mins...yum =-)

I used this recipe, but substituted the beef with turkey. I also used Mexican mix shredded cheese and crisp crumbled bacon. My family raved!!!!
