Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

How many times have you cooked a cheeseburger at home, only to have half of all that delicious cheese melt off the burger as you cook it, into your barbeque, grill pan or frying pan? It’s not only a waste of cheesy deliciousness, but a highly-annoying waste of money. Here, I’ve solved that problem by tucking the cheese inside a juicy, flavorful burger, leaving both your wallet and your tastebuds happy!

  • ingredients
  • 1 lb ground beef (80/20 is fine) $5
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1 tsp each salt and pepper Pantry
  • 1 egg $1.50 for 12
  • 8 oz. cheddar, jack, pepperjack or muenster cheese, chopped into small cubes $3.50
Total Cost of Ingredients $10.50


In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and egg. Use your hands to mix well. Divide beef into 4 equal-sized balls.

On a clean surface, divide a ball into 2 equal balls and use your hands to gently shape into 2 patties. On top of one patty, place about 2 oz. cheese and cover with the other patty. Use your hands to seal the edges so it looks like 1 large patty. Set aside and repeat with the remaining beef mixture and cheese.

Heat a grill, grill pan or heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, brushing lightly with oil if needed. Cook burgers to desired doneness (3-4 minutes per side for rarer burgers, 4-6 minutes per side for more well-done burgers). A bit of cheese will likely melt out the sides of the burgers.

Serve plain, on buns or over mixed greens with all the fixings.

Serves 4.

Most people do not know about this fun game like Satta king and there is a reason behind this. The game is so different from the other games that people find it difficult to understand it. They think that it is a risky game and they will lose their money in it. They prefer betting on cricket, horse riding, golf, football, etc. Satta King is a game that is similar to the Indian betting game. But in this case, the game is played online and this has made it extremely popular. The popularity of this game is increasing day by day and people are making a lot of money playing Satta King.
