How To Make a Jucy Lucy Hamburger

The Jucy Lucy burger is prepared by putting cheese between two patties of meat, then sealing both patties around the cheese to create a single patty with a cheese core. As the burger cooks, the cheese inside melts. This has the effect of keeping the meat near the center of the burger very juicy. It also separates the cheese from the bun, resulting in a slightly different texture than the usual cheeseburger. Normal burger toppings such as condiments, onions and pickles can also be added. Enjoy!


Ground chuck 1 1/2 Pound ((chilled))
Kosher salt 1 1/4 Teaspoon
Garlic powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Worcestershire sauce 1/2 Teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper 1/4 Teaspoon
American cheese slices 4
Butter 4 Tablespoon
Thousand island dressing 4 Tablespoon
Burger buns 2
