This fabulous burger hales from the great state of Minneapolis!

There are a couple of things that make this burger so delicious.

First, it is imperative to use a high fat ground beef. This isn’t the time to go low-fat. I use an 80/20 mix.

Then season well with Worcestershire sauce and salt & pepper, and then throw cheese in the middle. Mmmm mmm GOOD.

Make sure and sit at a table and have plenty of napkins handy!

Mix the ground beef and seasonings and divide into 4 pieces.

Split in half and form a thin patty. Cut the cheese slices into 4ths and place a stack of 4 small squares in the center

Form another patty and place over the cheese.

Pinch the edges and form into a nice patty.

Cook on a medium hot grill for about 4 minutes.

Flip the burgers and use a sharp knife to cut a steam vent in each one.

Cook for another 4-5 minutes.

Serve hot with all the toppings!
