This is my daughter Shonna's recipe for
her doubly terrific inside-out cheeseburger. "Everyone raves
about these burgers of mine...with only a few ingredients, they
pack a mouthful of flavor!" - Shonna.
Another delicious recipe from our Family-Favorite
Shonna's Inside Out
- 1 pound lean ground beef (I suggest using
at least 85% lean)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 (1-ounce) slices deli sliced cheddar cheese*
- Hamburger buns, toasted on the grill (I
like to spread a little softened butter on mine before toasting,
it adds great flavor.)
- Butter for hamburger buns (optional)
- Grilled onion slices
Your favorite barbecue sauce
- Lettuce leaves (optional)
- Tomato slices (optional)
- Divide ground beef into 4 equal-sized
balls; flatten each on waxed paper to 4-inches across and about
- Season patties with garlic salt and pepper,
- Top 2 of the patties with 1 slice of quartered
cheese, centering pieces so they are not touching the edges (it's
okay to pile the cheese on top of each other as it is going to
melt). Top with remaining 2 patties and carefully press the edges
to seal so that when you grill the burgers, the melting cheese
inside will not escape!
- Grill burgers 4-inches from hot coals,
turning only once, about 6 to 9 minutes on each side or until
no longer pink.
- Serve on buttered and grill-toasted hamburger
buns topped with grilled onion slices, barbecue sauce, lettuce
leaves and sliced tomatoes, as desired. (Warning! Be careful
before taking that first bite. The cheese inside will be HOT
and MELTY! So be prepared! This is the best cheeseburger I have
ever had and I am not a cheeseburger fan, but I LOVE these!)
Makes 2 big cheeseburgers...inside out
cheeseburgers, that is!
*Or use any flavor cheese such as Monterey
Jack, Colby Jack, Swiss, mozzarella, provolone and brick cheese,
or use a flavor combination of any two, three or four cheeses...since
you'll be cutting the cheese slices into quarters.
- These tasty burgers "pan-grill"
up just as terrific in a hot skillet or griddle. Grill the onion
slices alongside so they can soak up some of the tasty juices,
- To keep the cheese between patties as
it melts, do not flatten burgers with spatula while grilling.
